Luis Suarez scored his first goal for Barcelona during the Champions League 4-0 victory over Apoel on Tuesday 25 November to put behind him a concerning 393-minute drought.

The Uruguay international moved to the Nou Camp in the summer for around £65m after becoming the joint-top goalscorer in the European leagues last season alongside Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo with 31 Premier League goals.

However, Suarez had since struggled to replicate the same form at the La Liga giants.

Having missed the first three months of the season due to suspension, after he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup, Suarez was unable to help his side avoid a 3-1 defeat during his debut against Real Madrid on 25 October.

Suarez had since played another four games for the Catalans – against Celta Vigo, Ajax, Almeria and Sevilla – and even though he provided four assists during that time he struggled to do what he does the best, which is to score.

But on Tuesday night, the former Liverpool striker scored from 15 yards, netting the first goal in Barcelona's victory over Apoel.

After the game, Suarez expressed his delight for breaking the duck and put behind him all the concerns.

"Of course as a forward it is almost important to score. And there had been some games when I could not. I was not anxious, there was no reason to be. I was relaxed because although I was not scoring I was helping the team," he said, according to AS.

"I am very happy to be here, where I wanted to be -- to help the team to achieve objectives as the games pass. We can all improve which is important."

Meanwhile, in the same game his teammate Leo Messi became the top goalscorer in Champions League history after netting a hat-trick to break the tournament record of 71 goals, previously held by former Real Madrid star Raul González.
