Xavi compares Lewandowski’s slow Barca start to Luis Suarez’s – does it make sense? Analysed

Lewandowski’s reason for frustration is alright. It has already happened to Suarez before. He will end up scoring,” Xavi told the media after Robert Lewandowski failed to take his multiple chances against NY Red Bulls.

Did Luis Suarez also have a slow start to his Barcelona campaign?

The answer is yes.

The Uruguayan struggled to score in each of his first 7 league matches for Blaugrana, only finding the net once against APOEL in the Champions League within that time frame.

He bagged 16 goals in the next 20 league games afterwards. The same season, he massively contributed to his side’s treble win.

Two things should be remembered though. Firstly, he was 27 and Lewandowski is 33; secondly, he had been serving the FIFA suspension for several months before finally making his Barcelona debut in October 2014 – this could surely harm his confidence a bit

Anyway, we believe Lewandowski will quickly find his groove and establish himself as a predatory goalscorer at Barca.
