Fernando Torres boasts a remarkable record against Barcelona.

The Spanish striker has scored 11 career goals against the Catalan giants during his illustrious career.

He was unable to add to his tally after coming off the substitutes’ bench for Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou this evening; however, he did setup the equalising goal for Angel Correa less than a minute after entering the fray.

Not only that but, in the process of playing the little flicked pass, Torres nutmegged Gerard Pique.

An assist and a nutmeg on arguably the world’s best centre-back: not bad for a first touch, Fernando.
