Suarez to make Barcelona debut against Real

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique says Uruguay striker Luis Suarez will make his debut for the club in Saturday’s El Clasico against Real Madrid.

The former Liverpool forward, 27, is available after serving a four-month ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in June.

“He will have some minutes for sure,” said Enrique.

Barcelona go into the game sitting top of La Liga with European champions Real four points behind in third place.

Suarez bit Chiellini during his country’s 1-0 win over Italy in June – his third such offence – and was initially suspended by Fifa from all football-related activity for four months and banned for a record nine competitive international games.
