Video: Sergio Aguero scores his first ever Barcelona goal in behind-closed-doors friendly

Barcelona sign Aguero

Due to their financial constraints, Barcelona were restricted to free transfers this summer and were forced to part ways with their star man Lionel Messi, who has subsequently joined Paris Saint Germain.

One man who did come in, however, is former Manchester City star Sergio Aguero, whose contract in Manchester expired in June.

The Blaugrana’s latest addition has been blighted by injury, which has meant that he is yet to feature for his new side so far in their disappointing start to the season.

With Martin Braithwaite sidelined until after Christmas with a knee injury, Aguero’s potential return will come as a timely bonus to Ronald Koeman’s side.

Aguero off the mark for Barcelona

And the Argentine has already proved that he still knows where the back of the net is, netting for the first time in Barcelona colours since his arrival.

Playing in a behind-closed-doors friendly against UE Cornella during the international break as he kicked up his recovery from injury with the aim to return after the international fixtures.

The Argentine tapped into an empty net after an initial shot had been saved.

With Messi now gone, there is serious scope to help rescue Barcelona from the seventh place in which they currently find themselves, and turn around a Champions League campaign that has seen them suffer back to back 3-0 defeats at the hand of Bayern Munich and Benfica.

Can Aguero be the man to help them back towards the top of La Liga where they belong?
