Adama Traoré has been one of the sensations of the season. The winger, who was 18 years old on January 25,  has exploded in his first season with the Barça B team. Born in Hospitalet de Llobregat, the footballer with African origins has taken maximum advantage of his minutes on the pitch.

11 matches with Barça B

In Eusebio Sacristán's side he's played in a total of 11 matches, four of those in the starting eleven. During this time he's scored three goals and made four assists, an incredible balance for somebody just starting in this category. His definitive recital came on Sunday, away against Zaragoza, where he passed to Denis Suarez for the first goal, and scored the second from the edge of the area.

22 minutes with the first team

Gerardo Martino has also discovered his talent, and gave him his first minutes in the 4-0 win against Granada. A few days later he made his debut in the Champions League, away at Ajax. Two games where he showed details of his talent - he played a total of 22 minutes in the 2 matches -  that helped to ensure that the first team coaching staff bear him in mind.
