Blaugrana sensation Fati did not take too long to get off the mark in the UCL – he was just 17 years, one month, and nine days old when he netted his first Champions League strike against Inter Milan in December 2019. 

Although he has just returned from a long spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury, Fati remains one of the most coveted youngsters in world football, and Barca are reportedly working hard to tie him down to a new deal as he will be out of contract at the end of the current campaign. 

Another La Masia star in Fabregas was 17 years, seven months, and three days old when he opened his Champions League account with a goal for Arsenal against Norwegian outfit Rosenberg in 2004.

Chelsea star Kovacic also had an immediate impact in Europe's top club competition – he was only 17 years old when he scored for Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb in 2011. However, it was not a result to remember as his club suffered an emphatic 7-1 defeat at the hands of Olympique Lyon.
