No Messi? No problem! Ansu Fati's got things covered if the Argentine ace is not around for Barcelona.
Everything seemed set for Inter to claim a spot in the next round of the UEFA Champions League, given that they needed to win at home against a Blaugrana side that left most of their best players at home. Nevertheless, a one-all draw in the last ten minutes of the game left all options open for both teams. That's when the Spanish footballer stepped in to score and grab himself a bit of history in Europe's top club competition.
No player in history will be able to brag about him scoring a UEFA CL goal at a younger age than Fati from now, following his right-footed strike from outside the box. (Image might be geo-restricted).

And with that goal, Fati was able to re-write the UEFA Champions League's record books.
Now, Barcelona will wait and see which team they will draw in the next round of the UEFA Champions League, while Inter will have to lick their wounds in the UEFA Europa League and the Italian top-flight, where they are currently on top.
