CAIRO-8 May 2021: Luis Suarez will face his former club Barcelona on Saturday afternoon for the first time since his move away from the Catalan giants last summer after spending six seasons defending the Azulgrana jersey. 
 
The Uruguayan striker returns to Barcelona cathedral, Camp Nou, as Barcelona host Atletico Madrid in La Liga title showdown. 
 
Suarez knows the pressure of facing Barcelona at Camp Nou in a decisive game and he hopes to lead his team to victory and hand his current manager his first win over Barcelona at LaLiga at Camp Nou after 10 years of unsuccessful attempts. 
 
The Uruguayan missed the clash of the first half of the season due to being tested positive for COVID-19 but he is now ready to prove himself at Camp Nou against Barcelona's boss Ronald Koeman, who was behind his departure last summer. 
 
Barcelona are planning to pay tribute to Suarez after the game and they wish to honor the third all-time top goalscorer in the club's history while also celebrating an important win over their rivals. 
 
Atletico Madrid are leading the Spanish League table with 76 points, two points ahead of Barcelona and Real Madrid, with four games remaining in the season.
