Barcelona Wonderkid Yamal Breaks Champions League Assist Record
Lamine Yamal, the rising talent at Barcelona, continues to etch his name in history, securing another record in the prestigious Champions League.
Despite being just 16 years old, Yamal has already amassed 20 competitive appearances for the Liga giants and earned four senior international caps for Spain. His youth hasn’t hindered his impact, consistently setting new records as he ascends to the pinnacle of football.
In his recent Champions League outing, Yamal assisted Ferran Torres, marking himself as the youngest player to provide an assist in this renowned club competition. Surpassing Bojan Krkic, a fellow La Masia academy graduate, Yamal achieved this feat at just 16 years and 153 days old, a record likely to stand for some time.
While Yamal shines individually, Barcelona faces a collective struggle. Their recent 3-2 defeat against Antwerp adds to a series of underwhelming performances, having won only three of their last seven matches across all competitions.
