Contrary to widespread reports that Barcelona teenage sensation Ansu Fati is the youngest ever goalscorer in the history of El Clasico following his goal during his side’s 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid at the Nou Camp.
New reports suggests that the Spanish international does not hold the record as he is the second youngest scorer in the history of the fixture – as former Barcelona player Alfonso Navarro was three days younger than him when he netted in the clash, all the way back in 1947.
Teenage sensation Fati already had secured the records of being the youngest ever scorer in the history of Barcelona, of the Spanish national team and in the Champions League.
Fati cancelled out Federico Valverde’s opener for Real Madrid but the Los Blancos emerged winners after two second half goals from Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric to ensure Zinedine Zidane stayed unbeaten in six matches against Barcelona with three wins and three draws.
Fati is highly rated and has already played four times for the Spanish national team at 17, scoring one in four appearances.
