Athletic Madrid played their 34th La Liga match of the season on April 29 as Diego Simeone and his team played against Villareal in a game that concluded with a final scoreboard of 1-0 with Fernando Torres scoring the only goal of the entire match.
Fernando Torres entered the pitch at the 62nd minute and managed to make a huge impact only a few moments later as the Spanish forward capitalized on a mistake from Eric Bertrand as the defender lost the ball and allowed Torres to make a burst upfront and get past everyone in his path before tapping it into the net.
Diego Simeone praised the performance that Fernando Torres that displayed as his goal gave Athletic Madrid all 3 points from this match and the manager of Athletic Madrid took the chance to express his thoughts after the game reached it’s end as Simeone said: “It was an important match for the team in which we started very well.
“I saw the team was strong, with chances to hurt them. The key was to persist. Fernando finished extraordinarily well, with impressive calmness and coldness. We needed it, he needed it and we are all happy for the team, first, and obviously for Fernando.We benefited from that particular moment where Fernando finished with quality to decide a game that was open with two teams looking for gaps at the front.”
This goal of Fernando Torres was the 2nd league goal that he has managed to score for Athletic Madrid in this season as the Spanish forward has found the back of the net on 2 occasions in 16 appearances. Torres is still struggling to score goals consistently but he does seem to be a lot happier than a few years ago when he wore the jersey of Chelsea and Ac.Milan.
