Gavi has become the youngest player ever to score in the Spanish Super Cup after netting against Real Madrid on Sunday in Saudi Arabia.

The record was previously held by Xavi but now goes to Gavi who has found the back of the net at the age of just 18 years and 163 days, according to MisterChip.

Gavi is also the youngest player to score in a Clasico since Ansu Fati.

The midfielder struck in the 33rd minute after an assist from Robert Lewandowski. The two players then combined again just before half-time with Gavi teeing up the striker to make it 2-0.

Lewandowski’s goal was his 20th of the season in all competitions for Barcelona since moving to the Camp Nou from Bayern Munich.

And it’s only January.

Barcelona won their first piece of silverware under Xavi as they comfortably beat Real Madrid 3-1 in the Supercopa de Espana final in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Gavi put Barca ahead in the 33rd minute after a slide-rule pass from Robert Lewandowski before returning the favour for the striker, who put his side in full control when he scored himself in the 45th minute.

Pedri put the finishing touches on the rout when he turned home another fine pass from Gavi in the 69th minute. Karim Benzema scored a consolation goal in stoppage time, but it was nowhere near enough for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

How impressive was Gavi?

There are not many players who can say they have played five Clasicos at just 18 years of age, but Gavi showed once again he is more than capable on this stage. He was the standout player.

Gavi took full control of the spaces Real Madrid left in behind, he linked up wonderfully with Pedri and Lewandowski and also showed that he can play as a left-winger.

He played a part in all three Barca goals. He scored the first goal after a great link-up with Lewandowski and became the youngest scorer in the Supercopa de Espana’s history, in the process surpassing his own coach Xavi.

He also became the youngest player to score in a Clasico (at 18 years and 163 days old) since Ansu Fati in 2020. He assisted Lewandowski’s second goal and Pedri’s third.

The teenager showed a technical flair and a mentality that belied his young age in a game like this, with a trophy at stake and against Barca’s eternal rivals.
