Stunning Suarez streak comes to an end for Barcelona

Barcelona have lost for the first time in a match that Luis Suarez has scored in.

Sunday’s 2-1 LaLiga loss against Deportivo La Coruna at the Riazor was the 73rd Barca match in all competitions that had seen Suarez find the net.

The previous 72 had seen Barca go on to win 67 and draw five, but this shock loss ended that remarkable run.

Four days after recording the biggest comeback in Champions League history against Paris Saint-Germain, Barca were extremely poor as they fell to a costly defeat in the title race.

Joselu punished a first-half mistake from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to put hosts Depor ahead after his only other two league goals this season had come against Real Madrid.

Suarez, who scored four when Barca won 8-0 at the Riazor last season, appeared to have got the visitors back on track after the break within a minute of the restart.

But Depor captain Alex Bergantinos’ header with 16 minutes remaining proved decisive.
