Ansu Fati shines as Barcelona beat Valencia 5-2

Baku, September 15, AZERTAC

Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati scored on his full debut for the Catalan giants in a 5-2 win over Valencia at the Camp Nou on Saturday, according to Bleacher Report.

The 16-year-old slammed home Frenkie de Jong's cutback inside two minutes to give the hosts the perfect start and then teed up the Dutchman for Barca's second five minutes later.

Yet Valencia hit back on 28 minutes through Kevin Gameiro. The French striker latched on to a pass by Rodrigo Moreno and finished clinically past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Barcelona restored their two-goal advantage early in the second half following a mistake by their former goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen. The Dutchman spilled a shot by Antoine Griezmann, allowing Gerard Pique to tap home from close range.

Luis Suarez replaced Fati on the hour and added Barcelona's fourth minutes later. The Uruguayan grabbed his second late on before Maxi Gomez poked home a consolation for Valencia in stoppage time.
