The Catalan giants suffered a damaging 3-1 defeat to fierce rivals Real Madrid two weeks ago and followed this up with a 1-0 home defeat to Spanish minnows Celta Vigo.
The Uruguay international Luis Suarez has recently returned from a lengthy suspension after infamously committing another ‘biting offence’ in the 2014 World Cup and has spoke of his club’s ‘bad luck’ recently which has attributed to the dip in form. Suarez himself had ample opportunities to equalise for Los Blaugraunes last Saturday whilst his teammates Neymar and Lionel Messi both hit the post twice.
“Sometimes football is just unfair,” Suarez said. “When the ball doesn’t want to go in, it doesn’t go in.
“We didn’t have the necessary luck against Celta but we need to keep believing in ourselves. We want to turn this around and win titles because we are the best team in the world.”
