Lamine Yamal, a diamond in the making

Lamine Yamal was just 16 years and 45 days old today when he slipped a deft cross over Gavi’s head to score the first goal of the afternoon at the Estadio de la Cerámica. This makes him the youngest player this century to provide an assist in the Spanish top flight.

Lamine in song

It all started with a corner from Gündoğan. The ball was too long but Lamine Yamal managed to gain the upper hand on the right wing. He then belied his youth by coolly placing a delicious cross to the far post, where Gavi was waiting to turn the ball home.

Yamal thus surpasses his teammate Ansu Fati, who set the previous record in September 2019 with an assist against Valencia when he was 16 years and 318 days old.

Another great performance

In addition to his assist, Lamine produced another impressive performance in the Barça jersey. The 16-year-old was part of the starting XI and played 76 minutes before being replaced by Ansu Fati. The winger hit the post twice during the match, the second time Robert Lewandowski scored the rebound for the all-important winner. in the 4-3 victory. Suffice to say that Lamine was the key to Barça’s victory at the Estadio de la Cerámica.
