Barcelona ditched him last summer because they thought he was too old and slow but Luis Suarez is joint top scorer in Spain at the halfway point of the season and his brace against Eibar put seven points between Diego Simeone’s leaders and second placed Real Madrid.

Suarez took the sponsors’ man-of-the-match at the end of the game when it seemed destined for the hands of Eibar goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic, who scored Eibar’s opener from the penalty spot.

The Serbian shot-stopper stepped up on 12 minutes to beat Jan Oblak, sending him the wrong way. Yannick Carrasco had clumsily brought down Yoshi Muto and with Eibar on a bad run of penalty misses the keeper was the chosen man.

‘The coach told me it was my turn,’ Dmitrovic said after the game. ‘It was just a shame that the penalty did not bring us any points.

Suarez saw to that. He got the equaliser on 40 minutes thumping a loose ball in from a tight angle after Marcos Llorente had chased down an Eibar clearance.

Dmitrovic saved well from substitute Joao Felix in the second period but as the clock run down it looked as if both sides would be happy with the point.
