Suarez could make Barcelona Bow against Real Madrid on October 25


The Uruguay international will complete his four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini 18 hours before the game on October 25 at Santiago Bernabeu

Luis Suarez has been cleared to make his Barcelona debut in the Clasico on October 25.

Barcelona will travel to the Santiago Bernabeu to face rivals Real Madrid, with the eagerly-awaited game scheduled to kick off at 18:00CET.

Uruguay international Suarez was hit with a four-month ban from all football-related activity by Fifa for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during their respective nations’ World Cup clash in Natal on June 24.

The then-Liverpool striker’s initial appeal was rejected by Fifa but he was ultimately cleared to train with new club Barcelona by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), who upheld the four-month suspension but ruled that that it would run from the day of the offence, thus clearing the player to return to action on October 25.

As it stands, the forward is now in line to make his Barca bow 18 hours after the conclusion of his suspension against Carlo Ancelotti’s side, with the club also confirming the news on their official website.

Suarez, who left Anfield for Camp Nou for a reported €94 million, has only made one previous appearance for his new club, against Club Leon in a pre-season friendly.
