Barcelona’s 17-year-old gem, Ansu Fati, continues to break records. In the comfortable 5-1 victory over Ferencvaros in the Champions League, the youngster scored the second goal of the match thanks to Frenkie de Jong’s line-breaking pass. With his goal, Fati has become the first and only player in the history of the Champions League to have scored two goals before turning 18. Not to mention that he also provided an assist in the same game.

Fati was not the only teenager who scored for the Blaugranas. Pedri, another 17-year-old Barcelona star, scored the club’s 4th goal in the 82nd minute after a great individual play by Ousmane Dembélé. For the first time in the history of the Champions League, two teenagers (Fati and Pedri) score a goal in the same match.

Ronald Koeman has rejuvenated the squad in a way that fans have been looking for since Xavi and Iniesta’s reign. Ansu and Pedri are not only the future of the club, but also the present, amazing us week after week.

The love I feel for this club is as great as the desire to share my admiration for it. Being a fan of Barcelona since when I was 8 years old and growing up watching games week after week. It makes no sense to feel so much love for this club. Being able to transmit all that love with more lovers of this sport is priceless.
