Ferran Torres once again left something to be desired in a new ownership with Barça. Despite starting with intensity on the left wing, the winger faded as the minutes went by and was substituted at game time
The FC Barcelona received to the Celtic of Vigo in the Spotify Camp Nou and did it in the middle of rotations. The last 'cataract' of injuries has lit the 'alarms' in the City Condal, by what Xavi Hernández is beginning to take measures to avoid new setbacks in his staff. After the big physical wear made the past Tuesday in Giuseppe Meazza in front of the Inter of Milan and with the party of turn in front of the 'neroazzurri' presenting as a 'final' for the culés, the egarense entered several novelties in his eleven initial.
In this sense, the Catalan trainer gave him step to Ferran Torres by the left band to the detriment of Ousmane Dembélé, the one who is a 'indisputable' for the one of Terrassa. The one of Foios added like this his third titularity in the present season, all these in the national championship. However, it was his first party going out from the start in front of his public in the Spotify Camp Nou, since the two previous took place in the visits of the Barça to Anoeta and to the New Mirandilla, where the culés confronted to the Real Sociedad and to the Cádiz, respectively.
Like this then , the footballer started very participatory in a party that developed with frequency by both bands, where Raphinha and the Spanish deployed his football to leg changed. Whereas to the Brazilian touched him 'dance with the ugliest' when being defended by Javi Galán, Torres was imposing in the first minutes of the meeting thanks to his persistence, which exasperated by moments to the retaguardia Galician.
Of this way, the player achieved to generate danger in several opportunities during the first-half, being protagonist of some of the clearest occasions of the square barcelonista. It caused two shots of corner in the first five minutes of the crash, encaró regularly to his rivals and had a chance of 'gold' when receiving a pass filtered by Sergio Busquets, finishing of first intensión from a clear position but without a lot of direction, by what his shot was detained by Marchesín. However, in his band was born the goal, where played an important paper when freeing his zone so that Gavi burst into by the inner lane with the end to arrive to the area and command the centre. In general, a good first time of Ferran, although it was missing him something more.
Diluted with the minutes
After returning of the rest, the extreme had to focus in helping defensivamente to his mates, since the Celtic 'dumped' in attack in research of the tie and the culés lost the control of the meeting. The attacker cleared a pair of balloons in his own area and hardly shot once to the arch without danger any, in a clear sample of his bajón of performance. Like this then , Torres finished of 'erase' with the happen of the minutes and was substituted to the minute 62 leaving 3 finish to door, one only of them under the three sticks. A new 'disappointment' of a footballer that does not finish of 'espabilar'.
