Suarez Injured as Athelitic Bilbao Stuns Barça

Luis Suarez was forced off in the first half of Barcelona’s La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao with an apparent right calf injury.

The Uruguayan striker looked to suffer the injury when taking a shot that cannoned back off the post. After he was treated on the field, Suarez was ultimately unable to continue and was taken off in the 37th minute, replaced by Rafinha.

Barcelona released a statement during the match saying that Suarez would undergo scans on Saturday to determine the extent of the injury.

New signing Antoine Griezmann moved up front to fill the gap left by Suarez, with Rafinha taking up a place on the flank, but those changes were unable to produce any goals for the away side.
