Despite having not scored an away goal in the Champions League in 14 games, dating back to Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Roma in September 2015, Luis Suarez is in great form to break that streak.

The Barcelona forward has been in scintillating form as of late. He’s scored six goals and landed three assists in his last five games.

The absence of Lionel Messi created a need for someone to take the mantel of play maker and main attacker. Somehow Suarez has managed to fill both of those roles easily.

His next opportunity to break the away goals streak comes tomorrow away at Inter Milan. Even if somehow Messi figures out a way to make an appearance, Suarez will still be an offensive focal point for Barcelona.

Giving him the perfect chance to break that oh so long streak of goalless away Champions League appearances.
