It is safe to say Barcelona is pretty fired up to leave San Mamés with a win to start La Liga in victorious fashion.

After beating Athletic Bilbao 1-0 following a tough match, Barça players were very happy and proud of their effort on Sunday. The game's lone goalscorer, Uruguayan striker Luis Suárez, was also excited about the result, and looks at this result as the catalyst of another league-winning campgain. Suárez also talked about the injuries to Dani Alves and Sergio Busquets, who both left San Mamés with worrisome problems.

"These games inspire us to win the league … we won the game and that’s what’s important, we had to wait for the [right] moment to create some scoring chances.

"We know we're walking a fine line, they’re players who add a lot to the team, but we have a match ahead next week and we have quality players that can play in their place."


It's so good to see a guy who's so competitive and thinking about another league trophy just three months after getting a Treble. Luisito, you're amazing.
