Ansu Fati has made history for Barcelona and La Liga already this season.

However, there have been other young scorers in the Spanish top flight.

Barcelona had a new record-breaker amongst their midst after 16-year-old Ansu Fati became the club’s youngest-ever goalscorer during their game against Osasuna. Fati made his first-team debut for Barcelona during their 5-2 victory against Real Betis in the opening game of the La Liga season.

Not only did the goal come at a crucial point in the game, but it also ensured that Fati entered Barcelona’s record books breaking the previous milestone set by Bojan Krkic in October 2007. But was that enough to make him the youngest La Liga scorer?

Let’s take a look at the Top 10 La Liga youngest goalscorers to find the answer.

  • Real Madrid vs Atletico (1994/95)

After impressing for Real Madrid’s reserve sides at the start of the 1994/95 season, Raul was thrown in at the deep end by Jorge Valdano. He started a Madrid derby in just his second league appearance, and repaid his manager’s trust by scoring in a 4-2 win which helped Real win the LaLiga title.

As it turned out, Raul was rather a good player for Madrid, having previously been with their city neighbours: only Cristiano Ronaldo has netted more goals for the club, and the Spanish legend ranks among the five all-time top appearance makers in La Liga history (550).
