Two hundred days after becoming Barcelona's most expensive signing, Ousmane Dembele finally scored his first goal for the club against Chelsea in the Champions League.Dembele cost the Catalan club 105 million euros ($124 million) last summer and that figure could swell to 150 million if a number of performance-related bonuses are triggered. Dembele suffered a hamstring injury on his first league start and did not play again for his new team until January, by which time Barca were flying in La Liga and about to sign another attacking talent in Philippe Coutinho.Certainly, Barca cannot afford to dwell on their 3-0 win over Chelsea, with Atletico Madrid eager to cut an eight-point gap at the top of the table.Atletico, meanwhile, visit Villarreal Sunday as Diego Simeone's side desperately look to tug Barca back into a title race.
