Ansu Fati’s another record-breaking match for Barcelona
Ansu Fati has obtained another record with his strike for Barcelona in Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Ferencváros. Barça were looking for an instant return to form in their European opener. After suffering an unexpected loss at the hands of Getafe in LaLiga on Saturday. So they could not ask for a happier evening as the Hungarian side was put to the sword at Camp Nou. Lionel Messi fired first for his side after 27 minutes. He has converted from the penalty spot after being knocked down in the area to curtail a typically explosive dribble. Fati was then assigned a stage to flash, and the 17-year-old doubled his side’s lead just before the half-whistle. While Fati was not hitting the perfect contact on the volley from Frenkie de Jong’s cross. It was good enough to wrong-foot Ferencváros goalkeeper Denes Dibusz to make a mistake and put Barça 2-0 ahead.
He’s also Spain’s youngest goalscorer internationally
Along with setting a comfortable cushion for Ronald Koeman’s charges, the strike also set a new record for the starlet. It was his second UEFA Champions League goal for Barcelona. That made him the first player under 18 to score in UEFA competition more than once. Fati’s maiden strike came in the 2019-20 season when Barca’s teenager scored what proved to be the Catalans’ victory in a 2-1 defeat of Inter in December 2019. Since debuting last August, Fati has amassed an astounding number of recordings. He now serves as Barcelona’s second-youngest debutant and goalscorer in LaLiga. Also, the youngest player to have played either in the Champions League for a club. As well as holding the distinction of being the youngest ever to score twice in a Liga match for any club.
Internationally, he also made a name for himself. He claimed the 95-year mark in September to become Spain’s youngest goalscorer when he scored against Ukraine.
