VIDEO: Barcelona's players prepare for Dublin friendly with a game of bubble football

A novel way of making sure Luis Suarez doesn't bite anyone.

Barcelona are in Dublin on Saturday afternoon for a pre-season friendly clash against Celtic at the Aviva Stadium, and they warmed in a fairly unexpected way.

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi et al seemed to have great fun, although not even being dressed like an invisible Malteser could curb the Uruguayan's competitive instincts.

JOE reached out* to the Catalan giants to find out if they'd be donning the inflated suits in front of their Irish support, at least giving Brendan Rodgers' side a fighting chance of winning, but received no response.

*A blatant lie.
