Barcelona striker Luis Suarez calm after suffering another blank

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez isn't panicking over his poor goalscoring form.

For victory over Lyon, the Uruguayan failed to score in a Champions League once again but he played well, winning a penalty and setting up Philippe Coutinho's goal in the win.

"I'm excited to get through, the team's growing in confidence and into the next round," he said before adding that "it's true that strikers live for goals, but the goals will come."

Suarez added: "We were great in the first half. We knew the rival would push a bit more in the second half and after their goal there were five or 10 minutes when the grew a bit more, so it was important to kill the game off at 3-1 and relax."
