Luis Suarez has taken just 31 games to reach 30 goals for Barcelona

The Catalan giants are safely though to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey after tonight’s victory.

LUIS SUAREZ BECAME the first player in Europe’s top five divisions to reach 30 goals in all competitions this season as Barcelona claimed a 3-1 win over Athletic Bilbao tonight.

Holding a 2-1 advantage from last week’s Copa del Rey quarter-final first leg, the reigning champions fell behind on 12 minutes to a Iñaki Williams goal but Suarez equalised early in the second half after excellent build-up play.

Gerard Pique headed home a second on 81 minutes before Neymar capped off the win in the closing seconds.
