Barcelona got a 3-0 win at home against Levante with the likes of Coutinho, Memphis, Dest, and Luuk de Jong putting in good performances, but Ansu Fati was the one who grabbed all the headlines with his 10 minutes cameo.
Ansu Fati made his first appearance for Barcelona since last November. The young Spanish forward sustained a bad knee injury last year and he marked his comeback today against Levante with a goal.
Many would have thought that youngster would need some time to get back to his best but with a cameo-like that against Levante, Fati looked very sharp and ready to play.
Barcelona started the match against Levante well. Memphis was able to win an early penalty for the Catalan giants and the Dutch forward was able to convert from the penalty spot to give Barça the lead.
Luuk de Jong was also able to score his first goal for Barcelona in the La Liga with a confident finish. Barcelona were 2-0 up before the 15th-minute mark.
Barcelona couldn’t score the third goal to properly kill the game off and Fati Ansu Fati was introduced in the 81st minute.
Immediately Ansu Fati was brought on, he started causing Levante problems down the left-wing.
Right on the 90th-minute mark, Ansu Fati received the ball from Memphis Depay and he ran straight at the Levante defense before shooting the ball past the Levante goalkeeper Aitor.
With his superb 10 minutes cameo, Ansu Fati shows that he is capable of inheriting Lionel Messi’s number 10 shirt. Fati was named the man of the match although he only played for 10 minutes, and that shows that he is capable of leading the Barcelona attack alongside Memphis Depay.
Fati’s cameo will give a lot of Barcelona fans hope for the future and they will be hoping that he stays injury-free throughout the entire season.
