Barcelona returned to winning ways ahead of a tough week as they thumped Valencia with a 3-1 win at the Camp Nou. The home crowd could not have been more delighted as Ansu Fati scored a stunning equaliser, while the team made the most of their chances.

A few numbers stood out from the game, and Barça Universal now runs the rule over the statistics from the night.

Sergio Aguero made his long-awaited Barcelona debut last night, coming on for just over three minutes. His last game in La Liga came more than a decade ago!

It’s hard not to mention Memphis Depay, who ran the show last night. He was sensational every time he got the ball, and made the most of it with a goal and an assist.

In fact, Memphis crossed 50 goals contributions in 2021 last night, which now makes him the player with the fourth-most goals plus assists this year. Only Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski, and Erling Haaland have more.

Despite Memphis’ brilliance, it was Ansu Fati who took home all the love yesterday. Making his first start of the season, the Spaniard scored a stunner in the 13th minute, and then won a penalty in the 40th. A worthy heir of the #10.

Jordi Alba etched his name into history books, reaching the top 20 appearance makers for Barcelona with 263, level with none other than Pep Guardiola.
