Barcelona - Luis Suarez scored his first two goals for Barcelona in the humble surroundings of the club's training ground as an experimental Barca B side beat an Indonesia Under-19 team 6-0 on Wednesday.

The Uruguayan is a month away from being allowed to play in a competitive game as he serves a four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in June, but despite some obvious rustiness he played the full 90 minutes and showed flashes of his brilliance.

"Good game with Barca B, thanks to the team and the coach for the opportunity. Now to help my teammates," Suarez said via his official Twitter account.

Former Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen was also making his first appearance in a Barca shirt after recovering from a hamstring injury and he opened the scoring early on.

Suarez then latched onto a lovely pass from another of the Catalans' summer purchases, 18-year-old Croatian international Alen Halilovic, and fired into the far corner.

David Babunski made it three with a fine strike as Barca toyed with the inexperienced visitors and Bicho slotted home a fourth early in the second-half after replacing Vermaelen.

Suarez showed his quality once more with a fine curling left-footed effort for the fifth before passing up the opportunity of a hat-trick as he stood aside to allow Maxi Rolon to round off the scoring from the penalty spot.
