Barcelona forward Neymar is reportedly looking forward to welcome Luis Suarez into his and Argentina captain Lionel Messi's star-studded strike partnership when the Uruguayan returns for his four-month ban this weekend. Suarez looks set to make his debut Barca for on the biggest stage of all as the Catalan club faces Real Madrid for the first time this season at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday. Neymar and Messi have already combined for 17 goals in 10 games so far this season and the Brazilian is convinced that last season's Premier League Player of the Year would only add to their firepower, Sport24 reported. Neymar said that for him Messi is the best player in the world and he is happy to be able to play alongside the Argentine. But, he added that Suarez is among the best too and he is sure that the former Liverpool ace would bring many good things to their team. Before concentrating on the El Clasico, Barca welcome Ajax to the Camp Nou on Tuesday in a crucial Champions League clash following the Catalans defeat away to Paris Saint-Germain in their last European outing. Neymar said that it would be a very difficult and a very important match, adding that they always play to win but he believes Ajax to be a great team both in defence and in attack. He said that Barca would have to work hard to win.  ReportSportANIJohannesburgAjaxArgentinaBarcelonaBernabeuCamp NouLionel MessiLiverpoolLuis SuarezNeymarParis Saint-GermainPlayer of The YearReal MadridUruguayanUEFA Champions LeagueTuesday, 21 October 2014 - 3:36pmTuesday, 21 October 2014 - 3:36pm Luis Suarez's (L) inclusion in the Barcelona squad will add to the existing attack force of Neymar (C) and Lionel Messi (R)
