Europa League: Ferran Torres rescues Barcelona in first leg quarters, 10-man West Ham draw with Lyon
A second-half equaliser by Ferran Torres rescued Barcelona on Thursday as the Spanish giants were held to a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The win ended Barcelona's five-match losing streak to its rival and maintained an outside chance of fighting for the title after a difficult start to its first season without Lionel Messi.
Barca's hopes of winning a trophy this season were dealt two blows in a week after they followed up defeat by Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup with a surprise loss to Athletic Bilbao on Thursday in the Copa del Rey.
Ferran Torres was presented last week but hadn't been added to Barcelona squad due to the Spanish league's strict financial fair play rules.
Neither club disclosed the transfer fee when announcing Torres' move on a five-year deal.
Despite their financial struggles, the Catalan giants have reportedly agreed a deal worth an initial €55 million ($62 million, £47 million) for the 22-year-old.
Torres has scored 16 goals in 43 appearances for the English champions as City won the Premier League, League Cup and reached the final of the Champions League during his only full season in Manchester.
