Barcelona striker Torres happy with draw at 'tough' opponent Eintracht Frankfurt

Barcelona striker Ferran Torres says they can be happy after their 1-1 draw at Europa League opponents Eintracht Frankfurt.

Torres struck as the quarterfinal first-leg finished 1-1 in Germany.

He said, "To go behind but end up drawing might end up a very valuable result for the second leg. Frankfurt were a tough rival – they made things difficult.

"The main thing was that we were patient and the reward was that we got a good equaliser. For a striker like me it's always important to get your goals, to help the team.

"You always expect the quarter-finals of a UEFA competition to produce a tough rival but we are Barça, we are obligated to compete for every trophy and winning the Europa League is an objective."
