Suarez assisted on Neymar's fourth-minute goal during Barcelona's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

Suarez finally made his Barcelona debut after a four-month ban after a biting incident at the World Cup. Manager Luis Enrique started Suarez up front with Lionel Messi and Neymar, which should certainly continue to put him in excellent positions for both goals and assists this season.

Suarez, whose four-month suspension for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup ended Friday, is in the starting XI for Saturday's Clasico.

Suarez has been able to train with the first team and has played in a number of exhibition matches for the club, but without a full match under his belt, aside from two friendlies for Uruguay, it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited in his team debut.

Suarez, whose four-month suspension for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup ends Friday, claims he is 100 percent fit, and he could make his Barcelona debut Saturday against Real Madrid.

While he claims full fitness, Suarez hasn't played in a competitive match yet this season due to the ban, though he did play two matches for Uruguay during the recent international break. He'll form a dynamic trio with Lionel Messi and Neymar, though he may not be inserted immediately into the starting XI.

Suarez came on in the 75th minute of Barcelona's preseason friendly with Club Leon on Monday.

The match was Suarez's first for Barcelona after transferring from Liverpool earlier this summer, but he is still suspended until the end of October for his latest biting incident. There is no question that he's a dominant scorer when he's on the pitch, but it's still going to be awhile before he makes his La Liga debut.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

FC Barcelona announced Friday that they have reached a transfer agreement with Liverpool for the transfer of Suarez. The striker will have a medical next week and sign a five-year contract.

Suarez is a major signing for Barcelona after tying the Premier League 38-game goal-scoring record last season. However, he is ineligible to play or train with Barca until November after he was suspended for four months by FIFA for the third biting incident of his career. Nevertheless, when he does get back on the pitch, the trio of Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar (back) will be one of the best in the World.

Suarez is believed to be close to transferring to FC Barcelona, as the club has reportedly agreed to pay the 75 million release clause in his contract with Liverpool, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The Echo also reported that Suarez has already agreed to personal terms for a five-year contract with the Catalan club. There was talk that Barcelona was going to send Alexis Sanchez and a reduced cash amount to Liverpool, but Sanchez has now been taken out of the deal and replaced with an all-cash offer. Suarez is suspended from all football activities until late October for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup, but FIFA already announced that the ban would not prohibit a transfer. Suarez will remarkably leave Liverpool after tying the 38-game single-season Premier League scoring record with 31 goals.
