There was an air of hope at the Catalan capital when manager Ronald Koeman named Fati in his squad for Sunday. However, he warned that the 18-year-old will be eased into action to make sure that he does not suffer an injury setback.

However, Fati needed only two minutes to prove that he is indeed the breath of fresh air that the Blaugrana have been waiting for. In his first match in nearly a year, and also his first wearing Lionel Messi's number 10 jersey, Fati sent the Camp Nou up on their feet in rapturous applause.

With Ronald Koeman watching from the stands due to suspension, he will be relieved to see Fati making the most out of his "second debut" for the club. The teenage sensation had a stellar start to the 2020/21 season, before a serious knee injury and complications during his recovery kept him off the pitch for nearly a year.
