In the UEFA Youth League he played all six matches in the first phase, scoring two goals against Slavia Prague.

In the 2019/20 season, he was a regular in Barça B's squads and played in away matches at Badalona (0-2), Hercules (4-1), Ejea (1-0) and Orihuela (0-0), as well as home games against Villarreal B (2-3) and Llagostera (3-2).
