“Better than Cristiano Ronaldo”– Fans left stunned as ex-Barcelona hero Suarez nets ‘crazy’ goal for Gremio

One fan opined that Luis Suarez is better than Cristiano Ronaldo after the former Barcelona hitman scored a splendid goal for Gremio in their recent game.

At 36, Suarez is nearing the end of his illustrious career, plying his trade away from Europe. After a brief stint with Uruguayan club Nacional following his exit from Atletico Madrid last summer, the striker joined Gremio in January.

Although he no longer plays at the top level in Europe, Suarez is not entirely out of fuel yet. He showed that he still has something left in his tank with his goalscoring performance in Gremio's 1-1 draw against Cruzeiro in the Copa Do Brasil on Thursday (May 17).

Gremio trailed by one goal for most of the first leg of the Round of 16 clash after Bruno Rodrigues gave Cruzeiro the lead eight minutes into the game. 

However, the former Barcelona star equalized for his side with a stunning trivela shot from outside of the box in the 79th minute.

Watch the video of Suarez's goal here:

 Suarez had two shots on target in the game and also hit the woodwork once. The Gremio forward had 50 touches, completed 25 of the 34 passes he attempted and played two key passes. He, however, lost possession 18 times and was caught offside once.

Impressed by the veteran's performance, fans took to social media to wax lyrical about him. One fan even said that Suarez is better than Al-Nassr superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, tweeting:

"Better than Cristiano Ronaldo"

Another tweeted:

"Trivela into the near post top corner is crazy"

One fan, meanwhile, opined that the Copa Do Brasil is more competitive than the Saudi Pro League, in which Cristiano Ronaldo plays:

"More competitive than Saudi league"
