Watch former Man City star Ferran Torres score his first Barcelona goal with a sublime cut in the Copa del Rey thriller

BARCELONA striker Ferran Torres opened his account for the club in a dramatic way during a five-goal thriller against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night.

But the 21-year-old’s beautiful save made no difference as the Blaugrana were knocked out of the Copa del Rey after losing 3-2 in the clash in the round of 16.

Torres, who was linked with the Catalan club from Manchester City for a deal increased to £55m last month, was only his second appearance at Barca.

His debut has arrived in a 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the semi-final of the Spanish Super Cup last week.

Torres lasted only 46 minutes in that game, but he certainly made an impression against Bilbao at the San Mames Barria Stadium.

The home side opened the scoring after just two minutes through Iker Muniain, but Torres equalized with a delicate strike in the 20th minute.

Torres was found in the box by Sergio Busquets, with the Spain international making a one-touch touch before edging past Oscar de Marcos.

And with his third touchdown, he found the top right corner with a precise finish just outside the outstretched arms of Julen Agirrezabala.

Bilbao then thought they had won by death after Inigo Martinez put them back in the 86th minute.

But in the minutes of injury time, Pedri brought the visitors back to the level for the second time after finishing from inside the penalty area.

Dani Alves kept up the game after his overhead kick found the young midfielder, who shot the ball into the net on a volley.

The drama didn’t stop there as Bilbao took the lead for the third time after Muniain scored from the penalty spot in the first extra time.

This time there is no way back for Barca, the team is having 3 games without winning in all competitions.
