Youngest Barça XI for 24 years

Coach Ernesto Valverde put the most youthful eleven in La Liga so far this season

Barça took another step towards the league title in El Alcoraz with a 0-0 draw against Huesca that brings them a point closer to the La Liga title. The game saw debuts for Jean-Clair Todibo and Moussa Wague made their official debuts for the first time and Riqui Puig and Murillo made their first appearances for Barça in the league.

The youngest starting XI of the season in La Liga

Barça coach Ernesto Valverde made several changes to his side for the game at Huesca which led to the blaugranes fielding an eleven with an average age of just 24 years and 133 days, the youngest of any in the division this season.

The youngest Barça XI since 1995

The blaurganes had not fielded such a young side since 7 October 1995 when they recorded a memorable 5-1 victory away at Betis with goals from youngsters such as Roger Garcia, Albert Celades and Toni Velamazán as well as a strike from Luis Figo.
