Ansu Fati made history again on Tuesday night as he became the youngest player to debut for Barcelona in the Champions League.

The starlet was named in Ernesto Valverde’s starting XI for the game against Borussia Dortmund at the Westfalenstadion at the age of just 16 years and 321 days.

Ansu also has the chance to make more history during the game. The youngest player ever to score in the competition is Peter Ofori-Quaye, who scored for Olympiakos against Rosenborg at the age of 17 years and 195 days.

Of course Barcelona’s newest star is so young he has all season to break that record. The club’s youngest goalscorer in the competition currently is Bojan who netted against Schalke at the age of 17 years 218 days.
