Fati, 16, scores on first start as Bacelona beat Valencia


Barcelona’s 16-year-old forward Ansu Fati marked his first senior start with a second-minute goal as the La Liga champions cruised past Valencia.

The teenager burst on to Frenkie de Jong’s square ball to score the opener with a firm strike at the Nou Camp. Fati then returned the favour five minutes later when he cut the ball back for De Jong to double the hosts’ lead.

Kevin Gameiro hit back but Gerard Pique and a Luis Suarez double sealed victory before Maxi Gomez’s late consolation.
