Barcelona was not at its best in the match that brought it together in Elche, Saturday, but its young player, Pablo Gabi, entered the team’s historical list of the youngest scorers by scoring the second goal for the Catalan team.

According to the Spanish newspaper ” Marca “, Gabi became the third-youngest scorer in Barcelona’s history, even surpassing the Argentine star, Lionel Messi.

Messi scored his first goal with Barcelona at the age of 17 years and 331 days, while Gabi achieved that at the age of 17 years and only 135 days.

Gabi scored Barcelona’s second goal after three minutes with a pass from Frenchman Clement Lenglet (19).

Barcelona’s youngest scorer is Ansu Fati (16 years and 304 days) and Bojan Krkic (17 years and 53 days).

It seems that coach Xavi Hernandez’s philosophy of relying on the club’s academy to build for the future and try to find the star who will replace the late Messi to Paris Saint-Germain has begun to bear fruit, as the team won three goals against two goals against Elche after a draw and two defeats in the last three matches, one of them with a result Humiliation in the Champions League by Bayern Munich 0-3, which led to his exclusion from the competition.
