Fernando Torres’ fine finish vs Barca before hitting the self destruct button

Oh Fernando, what have you done.

Fernando Torres rolled back the years during his action packed, but ultimately doomed cameo role during Atletico’s Champions League tie against Barcelona. From the off Torres was thundering around the pitch and bouncing off Barcelona players with a youthful exuberance reminiscent of his teenage years with Atletico.

Unfortunately for Torres, it was that same youthful recklessness that would see him score, and get sent off all in the space of 10 minutes.

’25: scores opening goal.

’29: yellow card.

’35: second yellow, and red card.
