The 38-year-old Athletic Bilbao striker scored an incredible goal in the 89th minute as a substitute to beat Barcelona 1-0 in the first game of the La Liga campaign.

The veteran forward, who will retire at the end of the season, had only been on the pitch for a minute when he met Ander Capa's cross with an acrobatic volley to net an 89th-minute victor at San Mames.

Luis Suarez is out for an indefinite period after injuring his right calf in Barcelona's LaLiga loss to Athletic Bilbao on Friday, the club have confirmed.

However, Barca were put out of their misery when Aritz Aduriz finally broke the deadlock for Bilbao in the last minute, with an acrobatic volley that left ter Stegen with no chance to inflict defeat on the defending champions.

However, Ernesto Valverde's side, featuring debutants Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie De Jong, were unable to find a way through and Aduriz - an 88th-minute replacement for Williams - settled the encounter in sublime fashion.

"The season is long and we have to work towards the next game".

Now a year into the epidemic , there are concerns that we're running out of the current vaccine , produced by Merck. The cases in South Kivu come on the heels of an announcement of a breakthrough in the quest for drug to treat Ebola.

Barca were sloppy early on and a loose Ousmane Dembele pass opened the door for Wiliams to test the alertness of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen seven minutes into the new season.

The Basque outfit nearly took an early lead in the seventh minute after Inaki Williams pounced on a mistake by Ousmane Dembele in a unsafe area and unleashed a goal-bound strike that was parried wide by shot-stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Against the run of play, Barca almost profited from a sloppy back-pass on 31 minutes but Luis Suarez smacked against the post.

After he was treated on the field, Suarez was ultimately unable to continue and was taken off in the 37th minute, replaced by Rafinha.

Suarez departed moments after latching onto a poor passback and hitting the post while Rafinha struck the crossbar with a curling effort from distance.

The Argentine hasn't featured in any of Barca's pre-season matches, after returning late due to being on worldwide duty at the Copa America.
