Ferran Torres scores against Porto

FC Porto 0-1 Barcelona: Ferran Torres seals victory for away side

Ferran Torres scores against PortoFerran Torres (with ball) scored his first goal in this season’s Champions League

Barcelona made it two wins from two in this season’s Champions League as Ferran Torres’ goal secured victory at Porto.

The ex-Manchester City forward replaced the injured Robert Lewandowski midway through the first half.

Torres then grabbed what would be the winner just before the break, driving in from Ilkay Gundogan’s pass.

Porto battled for an equaliser in the second half and Barcelona had Gavi sent off in the 93rd minute, but held on.

Goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen had kept the hosts at bay, keeping out Wendell’s strike before parrying Galeno’s curled effort.

Barcelona teenager Lamine Yamal continued his impressive breakout season by making more history.

At 16 years and 83 days he became the youngest player to start a Champions League game.
