Fernando Torres on the brink of a big achievement

Should Fernando Torres play any part in today’s clash against Barcelona, the striker would mark a milestone, reminiscent of his on-pitch calibre.

Torres would mark his 300th LaLiga appearance, all of them playing for Atlético Madrid.

So far, El Niño has played 299 times in the league, starting 241 of them. He has also scored 104 times while providing 11 assists.

Only six players in Atlético’s history have made more appearances than the 33-year-old, with Adelardo leading the way with 401 appearances.
