Another day, and another record for Ansu Fati in his swift rise to greatness.
The Spanish footballer was on point for Barcelona against Real Madrid when he found a great cross by Jordi Alba to score his first El Clásico goal before the 10-minute mark. Fati's goal was crucial to keep Barcelona in contention for the game, as Fede Valverde had given Los Blancos the lead previously.
Just like it has been for Fati whenever he has scored, this goal will go down in El Clásico history for the footballer, who has become the first teenager to find the back of the net in such a game before turning eighteen. Simply put, Fati is the youngest player ever to score in the heated rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid.

"At 17 years and 359 days of age, Barcelona's Ansu Fati has become the first player under 18 to score in El Clásico's history. Stellar."
