Ansu Fati was back with a bang for Barcelona on Sunday as the teenager scored on his comeback for the Catalan giants in a 3-0 La Liga win over Levante at the Camp Nou.
The forward was named on the bench after over 10 months out due to injury but came on with 82 minutes on the clock to replace Luuk de Jong. Fati made an instant impact and was denied what looked to be a clear penalty after being felled in the box but his appeals were ignored by the referee.
The decision did not seem to affect the teenager at all as he went on to score Barca’s third of the afternoon with a brilliant effort to mark a truly remarkable comeback, as shown by ESPN.
Fati’s goal will give Barca a huge boost after a tough start to the 2021-22 season under beleagured boss Ronald Koeman. The win also sees Barca close the gap on leaders Real Madrid, who have played a game extra, to five points.
