Luiz Suarez form has been a major cause of concern recently after the striker has repeatedly failed to find the back of the net in eight games in a row for the Camp Nou outfit.
The Uruguayan poor form has also extended to the Champions League as his goal drought continued last night after he failed to score in a 0-0 draw with Lyon last night.
The Former Liverpool Striker has not scored in five Champions League
matches this season and has only scored once in his
last 17 appearances in the competition.
But Barcelona Coach, Valverde has come out to defend his player in an interview after last night game.
“We have created a lot of chances, but football is a
matter of success and today we have not had it,” he added. “The tie is in the air, 0-0 is a dangerous
result, we will not kid ourselves.
“I do not think it is very easy to win away from home
in the Champions League. We have absolutely
dominated and they have not lost any match in this
competition so far this season.
“Lyon had chances in the beginning but we came
back well and we controlled the game until the end
