Rafa Mir is a name that will send shudders down the spine of Nottingham Forest supporters.

Last night, however, he continued his fine form by bagging his 11th goal of the season at the Nou Camp.

The Portuguese striker is at Huesca and despite the team facing relegations, Mir is bang in form.

That news is likely to shock Forest fans. His six-month spell at the City Ground barely reaped a shot on target, let along a goal.

Mir managed 13 outings for the Reds and although he claimed two assists, he couldn’t bag himself.

He was sent back to Wolves after half a season and immediately headed to Spain.

During the second half of last season he scored nine goals as Huesca were promoted to La Liga.

His rise to prominence hasn’t stopped there either and his goal last night was his eighth in the league during 2020/21.

A brace from Lionel Messi and goals from Antoine Griezmann and Oscar Mingueza did ensure a drubbing for Mir’s team.

Relegation looks more like a formality with each passing week but Mir has tried his best to fire the club to safety.

After his penalty in the Nou Camp last night, supporters have taken to Twitter – and they can’t quite believe it.
