It was a great demonstration from FC Barcelona who won 5-0 at Real Betis in the La Liga, also putting an end to several years of drought with a direct free kick goal.
Lionel Messi was the last Barcelona player to score a goal from direct freekick.
La Pulga, who left Catalonia more than two years ago, was the last Blaugrana scorer from a direct free kick ; an incongruity repaired this Saturday evening by Ferran Torres, during FC Barcelona’s demonstration against Sevilla.
In the 62nd minute, Ferran Torres ended his great week with a new goal, his third after his double against Cyprus.
This is therefore Barça’s first goal in an official match from a direct free kick since Messi at Mestalla in May 2021. The Barcelonans had however attempted it 41 times without success.
It was Joao Felix, for his first start under his new colors who opened the way, followed by Lewandowski, Ferran Torres but also Raphinha and the new recruit Joao Cancelo in the 81st minute.
