Luis Suarez, 28, will be man to watch in the quarter-final game between Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona on Wednesday, April 15.

The Uruguayan has impressed me on and off the pitch. Oh, forget the match biting incident. We know he did it twice and deserved to be punished. He has, hasn’t he? I agree with the views of this news story that he brought it upon himself.

Now, he’s back and to prove it just after the round of 16 victory over Manchester City (he scored in the first leg), he sealed Barca’s dominance over Real Madrid by scoring the 56th minute goal that made it 2-1, bringing his goals tally for this season to 14.

Suarez started his career with Nacional, Uruguay, at age 11, and played his first game there in 2005. He later moved to the Netherlands to play for FC Groningen and then Ajax FC. He got his first taste of continental football with Groningen in a match that was lost 2-4 to Partizan at the first round. He led Ajax to win the 2009/10 Dutch Cup and was voted Netherlands' Footballer of the Year for 2010. He joined Barcelona last summer, in August 2014.

I like his spirit of determination and of team work.

This is what he said when asked about playing alongside superstars like Neymar and Messi:
"It's about adapting to the way they play and the moves they make, trying to make things easier for them and help them.

"They are incredible players, you don't have to work hard to do the dirty job but to really support the team as a whole, regardless of who is playing that day and who isn't.”

Luis Suarez is my pick for Wednesday’s match.

See you at Parc des Princes stadium - Paris, France, on Wednesday. Kickoff time: 19:45 hrs.
