Joao Felix's return to the Metropolitano was marked by a goal that silenced his critics and reminded everyone of his undoubted talent. In the 39th minute, after a meticulously executed play by Barcelona, Felix found himself at the right place at the right time to turn the ball into the net against his parent club, Atletico Madrid.

The build-up to the goal showcased team synergy at its best, with Ilkay Gundogan charging towards the box and Robert Lewandowski, in a display of exceptional awareness, opting to assist rather than take a shot at goal himself. This choice allowed Félix, who has been fighting to prove his worth after a challenging stint on the bench, to score a poignant goal, highlighting his potential impact despite limited opportunities this season.
