Saving goal! Ferran Torres put an end to Barça's losing streak
Ferran Torres' goal against Atlético de Madrid ended FC Barcelona's scoring drought. There were three consecutive games without seeing the goal, in Copa del Rey and LaLiga Santander
The FC Barcelona needed to win to the Atletico of Madrid to recover the good feelings. The ones of Xavi Hernández came of three 'pricks' consecutive, with defeat in front of the Real Madrid (0-4) and ties without goals in front of the Girona and Getafe. The feelings were very bad, but this Sunday against the Athletic have given the first step for 'enchufarse' in the final stretch of the season.
Although the party against the colchoneros was very contested and the culés wasted a lot of opportunities, 'cost' to add three points of gold. Ferran Torres was the attendant to break the equality in the final stretch of the first part, to put an end to the drought goleadora of the Barça, that extended by 334 minutes, between the parties against the Madrid, Girona and Getafe, as well as the 44' in front of the Atleti.
Important goal of Ferran Torres
The true is that it has been a very important goal for the culé, because they recover the confidence of face to the goal, but also for Ferran Torres that, if by something has 'characterised' in this temporad, is for being little decisive when the culés have needed him. In this season, sum 39 parties (1.690 minutes) in which only it has marked seven goals, with two assistances.
Against the Athletic showed very participatory, splitting from the left extreme but falling at all times to the centre of the forward. Of there 'it hunted' the balloon for the only so much of the night. And it is that after a good career, Raphinha controlled, and, in front of the attentive mark of Mario Beautiful, turned and raised the look to find to Ferran Torres. The Brazilian achieved to send a go through on of the defence of the Athletic and the one of Foios sent a shot, subtle, with the interior of the network so that Jan Oblak did not have at all that do.
Seven goals for Ferran
As we mentioned before, Ferran to reached his seventh goal in what it goes of season. It has not had continuity in the plans of Xavi Hernández and has been 'rotando' the place of third (or fourth, when it has been Dembélé) with Ansu Fati.
