Barcelona vs Leon match report: Luis Suarez makes debut but Neymar steals the show with two goals
Barcelona 6 Leon 0
Luis Suarez made his Barcelona debut in a pre-season friendly win against Mexican side Leon.
Barcelona supporters had their first, and only, sighting of the £75m striker who is banned until the end of October for biting Giorgio Chiellini, with Suarez playing the final 14 minutes in the Nou Camp with the side already 4-0 up.
Suarez hardly got a kick with Neymar, back from his own World Cup horror injury, stealing the show with two fantastic goals and a slightly lucky assist.
The first was a beautiful chip when put through on goal after a sensational pass from Andres Iniests, while the second saw him back-heel into an empty net after his touch took the ball round the keeper.
Lionel Messi opened the scoring after just three minutes, heading in Neymar's cross after the ball had skipped up off a defender.
Youngster Munir El-Haddadi scored twice, turning in 10 minutes after the break and 10 minutes before the final whistle before Sandro Ramires finished the scoring in the dying minutes.
