WATCH: Fernando Torres scores first La Liga goal in nearly eight years as Atletico defeat Getafe


Fernando Torres has scored for Atletico Madrid before this season, most recently in a Copa del Rey match vs. Barcelona, as he buried one of his side’s two goals in a 3-2 loss.

But the former Chelsea forward managed to get his first goal of the year in league play against Getafe today–burying a well-executed header off Koke’s free-kick effort in the third minute.

Tiago converted a header one minute before the half to ultimately finalize the 2-0 victory.

The last time Torres scored in La Liga happened to be roughly eight years ago during his first stint with Atleti when he notched a brace against Gimnastic.
