LaLiga delays boost Barcelona title push via Suarez recovery

Barcelona are set to enjoy an end of season boost via the return to star striker Luis Suarez.

Suarez is recovering from knee surgery and Barca management had expectations he would be available for the final three weeks of the LaLiga season.

However, with the competition now suspended for the next fortnight, it will mean the Uruguay international being available for over a month in the title run-in.

The situation is a huge boost with Barca in a head-to-head LaLiga race with Real Madrid.

The delays and Suarez's potential availability is a huge lift for Barca, which had also lost Ousmane Dembele for the season last month.
