Messi helps Ansu Fati make La Liga history


17 year old Barcelona forward on Sunday became the youngest player to score a brace in La Liga history.

The 17 year old Guinean broke the deadlock for the Catalan side who needed to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to Valencia at the Mestalla last time out.

The youngster midway through the first half capitalised on a breathtaking pass from Lionel Messi and shrugged off the attention of a Levante defender, Miramon to slot in between the legs of Aitor Fernandez.

The teenager second goal came two minutes later and also came from a Messi pass. This time he beat Aitor at his near post with the ball again going through the goalkeeper’s legs.


Ansu Fati (17 years and 95 days) became the youngest player in history to reach 4 Liga goals, breaking Muniain's record (17y 147d).

The youngster has now scored five goals for Barcelona this season in all competitions in his debut season with the first team.
