Luis Suarez celebrated Barcelona's final La Liga game of 2014 with his first league goal for the club in their 5-0 win over Cordoba at the Camp Nou on Saturday.

After joining the Catalan outfit in the summer and serving a four-month ban for a bite on Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup, the Uruguayan had gone seven Liga games without finding the net before his second half strike against the Andalusian outfit.

Despite racking up 31 goals in the Premier League for Liverpool last season, Suarez has initially struggled to replicate such goalscoring form in Spain, with his only two goals for the club before Saturday coming in the Champions League against APOEL and Paris Saint-German.

At his previous clubs Ajax and Liverpool, Suarez had gone eight full games without a goal.

However seven minutes into the second half against lowly Cordoba the 27-year-old was able to break his duck from close range following a Pedro Rodriguez centre.
