The Catalan giants had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping the match level, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen making a string of fine saves, something which didn't escape the Uruguayan forward.
"That's why he's one of the best," he admitted. "He's shown it once again, he stopped them scoring.
"That's what you have a goalkeeper for."
After being left out of the starting line-up in the Clasico, Lionel Messi was restored to the team at the Estadio San Mames, although Suarez was quick to rebuff claims that the Argentine was not fit enough to play.
"If he played, then it's because he's at one hundred percent," he intimated.
"However, it was difficult for him to play because he was being constantly fouled."
