Ferran Torres: Huge win in Barcelona’s La Liga title challenge

Barcelona star Ferran Torres believes that their 4-2 comeback victory against Real Betis could be crucial in the La Liga title race.

In a remarkable comeback at the Estadio Benito Villamarin, La Blaugrana staged a superb late rally, with Torres securing a hat trick on his 100th club appearance.

Ferran Torres scored goals on both sides of the break, giving Barcelona a 2-0 lead. However, Isco’s double leveled the game as it approached the closing stages.

Joao Felix’s exceptional finish regained control for Barcelona before Torres completed his hat trick. The triumph in Andalusia propels Barcelona into third place as they aim to narrow the gap in the title race with Real Madrid and Girona.

“This is the result of hard work, discipline and belief. And also taking advantage of every opportunity on the pitch.” said Ferran Torres, reported by Marca.

“The team has taken a big step forward after coming back from 2-2. We showed character and took the three points.”

Barcelona will temporarily shift focus from their league title defense. They face a challenging trip to Athletic Club in the Copa del Rey quarterfinals midweek.

After the Copa del Rey quarterfinal, Barcelona will return to Catalonia for two home league matches. They face Villarreal and Osasuna at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys by the end of the month.
