In their opening of the Champions League, Ansu Fati answered the 5-1 Ferencvaros round of Barcelona.
Barcelona Sensation Ansu Fati said after setting the Champions League record on Tuesday, he’s always learning from superstar captain Lionel Messi.
After opening the score for Barcelona in his 27th-minute penalty, Messi became the first player to score in 16 consecutive Champions League campaigns.
As he became the first player to score two goals in the Champions League before celebrating his 18th birthday, Fati doubled the lead with a volley.
“Messi is always Messi,” Fati said to Movistar after the match.
“In any action, he can score. We’re very lucky to have him here with us, and I’m always learning from him. We’ve got to start with a good win, we’ve got to move on like that,” Fati added.
“It’s [his goal] thanks to all my teammates that make things easier for me. It’s a terrific pass from Frenkie [De Jong], and I just had to drive the ball.”
