Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati created another Laliga history in the club’s win over Levante on Sunday.
The Spanish wunderkind scored a brace in a span of a minute to help Barcelona to a 2-1 win over their opponents.
His first goal showcased his lightning pace and level of strength, as he shoved away from his marker before composedly slotting beneath goalkeeper Aitor Fernandez. His second coming after Messi played the ball into his right feet which he shifted to his left before drilling in a low shot through Aitor.
At 17 years and 94 days old, Fati became the youngest player to score two goals in a single LaLiga match in the competition’s history.
In the game, only Messi managed more shots (10) and more efforts on target (six) than Fati (five and two). Barca’s captain was also the only player to better Fati for chances created (seven, compared to three); no Barca player made more tackles than Fati (four), with Gerard Pique closest on two.
The record is Fati’s latest among those of becoming Barca’s second-youngest LaLiga player, youngest league goalscorer, youngest Champions League player, youngest Champions League goalscorer, and youngest to score and assist in the same LaLiga match.
Barcelona are however still second to Real Madrid in the La Liga table.
