Luis Suarez’s abysmal Champions League away stats emerge ahead of Lyon clash

Statistics highlighting just how badly Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has struggled away from home in the Champions League over the last few seasons have come to light online this evening.

Lyon vs Barcelona

Ernesto Valverde’s La Liga table-toppers are set to begin their Champions League knockout adventure for this season with a tricky trip to France to take on Lyon this evening.

The Blaugrana head into the matchup on the back of a hard-fought, albeit crucial 1-0 La Liga victory over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday night, a win which saw the Catalan giants extend their advantage atop the Spanish top-flight to 7 points.

Hosts Lyon, meanwhile, picked up their 6th win from the club’s last 7 outings across all competitions this past weekend, after downing Guingamp by 2 goals to 1.

The win saw Bruno Génésio’s side close the gap on 2nd-placed Lille to 4 points in the Ligue 1 table.

Struggling Suarez

Despite their impressive recent string of results, however, Lyon will obviously head into tonight’s first-leg of their tie with Barcelona as heavy underdogs.

Fans of the French outfit, though, will be buoyed by the emergence of a surprising statistic online this evening, showcasing just how indecisive Barcelona hitman Luis Suarez has been on his travels in Europe over the last 4 seasons.

As showcased below, incredibly, Suarez has failed to directly contribute to a Champions League goal away from the Camp Nou for almost 24 hours running:
