Barcelona sensation Fati Ansu continued his rapid raise to stardom by reaching an all-new milestone in Saturday's big win over Valencia. The Blaugrana teenage starlet scored in the 5-2 win over Los Che to become the youngest ever goalscorer at Camp Nou.
Even before kick-off, the electrifying winger - who became La Liga's youngest-ever goalscorer with his strike away to Osasuna - earned the tag as the youngest-ever Barça player to be named in the starting lineup for match at Camp Nou. The record was previously set by Marc Muniesa in 2009.

Just two minutes after the day's proceedings began, Ansu fired Barcelona into the lead with an assist from new-boy Frenkie de Jong. Five minutes later, the Bissau-Guinea native also returned the favor to aid the former Ajax star get his name on the scoresheet.
In essence, the goal was Ansu Fati's first-ever at Camp Nou for the Barcelona team, making him the youngest-ever goal scorer at the grounds in history at the age of 16 years and 318 days. He is also the youngest-ever player in La Liga's history to score and assist in the same game.
At the moment, he has scored two goals in three La Liga outings for the Catalans. Watch his goal against Valencia below:
