Ansu Fati, who has been the star of Barcelona's season so far, has broken another record at Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund on Wednesday: he's become the youngest ever player to debut in a European game for the Catalans in their 120 year history. He takes the record from Bojan Krkic, who was 17 years and 22 days old when he played against Lyon in 2007. 

Attacker Ansu is 16 years, 10 months and 14 days old. He also enters the top 10 of youngest debutants in the Champions League. The No.1 spot is still held by Celstine Babayaro, who was 16 years and two months old when he made his debut in the competition for Anderlecht in 1994. 

And whay would happen if, as against Osasuna and Valencia, Ansu scored again? Then he would become the Champions League's youngest ever scorer. The record is currently held by Peter Ofori-Quaye. He was 17 years and 195 days old when he scored for Olympiacos against Rosenborg in 1997.
