Ansu Fati debuts with the first team

The U19A player becomes the second youngest debutant in the league for Barça at only 16 years, 9 months and 25 days

From La Masia to the Camp Nou. Ansu Fati, Barça's U19A player, has enjoyed a meteoric rise at the club which culminated in him making his first team debut against Real Betis on Sunday (5-2). At only 16 years 9 months and 25 days, the youngster from Guinea-Bissau entered the field in the 77th minute, replacing C. Pérez.

It means he is the second youngest player to play a league game with the Blaugrana behind Vicente Martínez, who did so at 16 years, 9 months and 7 days.

The youngest Blaugrana to make his debut with the first team in any official competition is Albert Almasqué, aged 13 years, 11 months and 6 days. The debut took place in the Macaya Cup on November 30, 1902 in Barça's 0-2 win over Hispania.
