Barcelona teen Ansu Fati breaks another record

Barcelona teen Ansu Fati broke another record for their 0-0 Champions League draw at Borussia Dortmund.

At the age of 16 years and 351 days, he has become the youngest player to ever feature for Barcelona in the competition.

Until now, the accolade belonged to Bojan Krkic, who played against Lyon in 2007 at the age of 17 years and 22 days.

Celestine Babayaro holds the overall record in the Champions League, having played for Anderlecht at 16 years, two months and 25 days old.

After making his debut against Real Betis, he scored against Osasuna, and added an assist and a goal on his first start against Valencia.
