Sergio Aguero found the back of the net during his debut for FC Barcelona during a friendly game against UE Cornella. The game, held at the Blaugranes’ training ground, ended in a 2-2 draw.

Having signed for Barca during the summer transfer window, Aguero is yet to make a competitive appearance for the club due to suffering a calf injury back in August, a setback that was expected to sideline the Argentinean striker for 10 weeks.

Aguero decided to join the Blaugranes after his contract with Manchester City expired at the end of last season. He officially began training with Barcelona earlier this week and is expected to be a match fit, despite only playing for 30 minutes during the club-friendly.

Sergio is just one name on an extensive list of players who have endured injury woes this season. Fellow forward Ousmane Dembele has been out of action for three months and has still not been declared match fit, while Ansu Fati made his return to action right before the international break.

Aguero’s return will provide a much-needed boost to the struggling Blaugranes, who have a tough set of fixtures ahead of them. Next up is a La Liga game against Valencia on Sunday, after which Barca will face Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.
