But the Uruguayan striker missed from the spot with six minutes left to play after his side was awarded a penalty. The goalkeeper got his guess right and blocked Suarez's spot-kick, denying him a second goal.

Suarez has now scored one goals in two games on his return to Nacional three weeks ago. He played his first game in their 1-0 defeat to Atletico Goianiense in the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday.

The ex-Atletico Madrid and Liverpool forward was part of the Nacional team between 2001 and 2006, making 27 first-team appearances and scoring 10 goals.

Suarez is Uruguay's all-time top goalscorer and set to compete at his fourth World Cup later this year.

He enjoyed his most successful spell in Catalonia, winning four Spanish league titles and the Champions League in 2015, while he won La Liga again with Atletico in 2021.
