La Liga's maverick magicians entertain Spain from their backyards

Any other 37-year-old man with a mop of shockingly bleached hair, dancing wildly late on a Sunday night, shirt off and posing like the Hulk in full "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry" mode, would draw derogatory comments about his "midlife crisis."

Maxi Gomez, the "new Luis Suarez," currently taking La Liga by storm

Gomez has never taken anything for granted and is currently seizing his opportunity at Celta Vigo.

On Sunday, Maxi Gomez did it again.

That is exactly what he accomplished at Camp Nou in December, netting the last goal in another 2-2 draw, ruining Barcelona's perfect home record and out-shining his role model, Luis Suarez.

"[Suarez] is my idol. I admire him a lot for the way he works. People in Uruguay say that I am going to be his successor in the national...
