Barcelona star Lamine Yamal is in line to break another club record in today’s (Saturday) El Clasico clash with Real Madrid.

The 16-year-old has developed into a vital player for club and country in the past 12 months and he looks set to start against Los Blancos in Catalonia.

However, while his progress impresses, records continue to fall and be claimed by the latest product of the La Masia production line.

Since April, he has set new standards as Barcelona’s youngest ever player, Spain’s youngest debutant and goalscorer, and the youngest goalscorer in Barcelona and La Liga history.

Today’s El Clasico presents another chance for Yamal to break a new barrier as he will become the youngest player to appear in an El Clasico match.


The current record, held by Vicente Martinez, dates back to 1941 when he played for Barcelona against Real Madrid, aged 16 years and 278 days.

Lamal will be 16 years and 107 days old when Barcelona host Real Madrid today (Saturday) October 28.
