Luis Suárez made a successful return to action last week with a brace against Valencia, one of the striker's favourite opponents. Luckily for the Uruguayan, this week also provides an opportunity for him to take on another of his preferred rivals: Granada.

Overall, Suarez has scored five goals in three matches against the surprise package of LaLiga. The first time he faced them was in the 2014/15 season and he got on the scoresheet in a 3-1 victory. Neymar and Messi were his teammates that day.

Suarez had an even more important role to play the following season (2015/16). Barça arrived at Los Carmenes in the final day of the season and needed a victory in order to secure the LaLiga crown. A run of three consecutive losses against Madrid, Real Sociedad and Valencia opened the door for their rivals to snatch the title. Luis Enrique's side were forced to win their remaining five matches to remain in top spot and beat Deportivo (0-8), Sporting (6-0), Betis (0-2) and Espanyol (5-0) before heading to Granada.

The Uruguayan scored all three goals as Barça won 3-0 and claimed another LaLiga title. 

The last time, in the 2016/17 season, Barça won again (4-1) and Suarez got himself on the scoresheet.
