The report included 999 clubs from 71 divisions and Barca lead the top Spanish side with 15% of the minutes going to players under 21 years of age.

The average age of the squad is 26.2. Ronald Koeman’s faith in youngsters was reflected by the data.

Players like Pedri, Dest, Mingueza, Ansu and Araujo have been key at various points and all played a lot when fit.
