Luis Suarez Scored A Sensational Backheel Goal In Barcelona’s Win Over RCD Mallorca

Luis Suarez Scored A Sensational Backheel Goal In Barcelona’s Win Over RCD Mallorca

Luis Suarez pulled off an exquisite backheel finish as Barcelona secured a 5-2 victory over RCD Mallorca at the Camp Nou.

The reigning La Liga champions showed off a brilliant team-based movement towards the end of the first half as they seamlessly moved the ball around the edge of the box.

And Frenkie de Jong eventually unlocked the Mallorca backline when he slotted the ball into the path of Suarez, who managed to beat his marker and Manolo Reina with a sensational backheel finish.

The 32-year-old Barcelona striker admitted after the match that it was the best goal of his career.

"It's the best goal of my career," he said.

"I knew that it was a tight angle and the last option I had was to hit it with my heel.

"I was looking to bounce it because I had very little chance against the goalkeeper.

"[Ernesto] Valverde tells me that sometimes I miss the easiest ones and score the most difficult ones."

Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring early on in the first half before the 28-year-old French forward set up Lionel Messi for Barca's second.

RCD Mallorca managed to pull one back in the first half through Ante Budimir, but Barca cemented their lead through Messi and Suarez.

Budimir completed his brace in the second half, only for Messi to return and complete his hat-trick.

Barcelona remain top of La Liga and are level on points with fierce rivals Real Madrid.

Ernesto Valverde's men will return to action on Tuesday with an away trip to Inter Milan in the Champions League.
