Suarez has scored three goals for new side Atletico and 147 with Barcelona, where he spent six trophy-laden campaigns before leaving the club ahead of this season. 

Of his 150 LaLiga goals, 110 have been scored with his right foot, 26 with his left and 14 with his head. 

Suarez's impressive haul is boosted by nine penalties, while eight of his goals have come from outside the penalty area.
