Ansu Fati becomes youngest Champions League scorer

Rising Barcelona star Ansu Fati became the youngest ever scorer in the Champions League at a age of 17 years and 40 days when he beat Inter Milan keeper Handanovic to make it 1-2 to Barcelona in the 86th minute of the Champions League match in Milan on Tuesday night. Ansu Fati was born October 31, 2002.

Ansu Fati’s goal destroyed Inter’s feeble hopes of a comeback that would give them a chance to finish in the Champions League’s last 16.

Ansu Fati has now played for 413 minutes in his first season with the first team in Barcelona, scoring three goals and setting up one.

Peter Ofori-Quaye, who played for Olympiacos at the age of 17 and 195 days, was the previous youngest goal scorer in the Champions League.
