Riqui Puig, the young promise that gives Barcelona hope

The 20-year-old contributed two assists in the game against Alavés as a visitor and reached a mark that Thiago Alcántara had achieved in 2011.

Despite not having achieved The league, for Barcelona there is still light at the end of the tunnel thanks to Riqui Puig. It is that the midfielder extended his good present in the first team this Sunday: he signed two assists in the win 5-0 against Alaves for the last date of the tournament.

Thus, the midfielder became, at 20 years and 341 days, the youngest player to achieve two goal passes since August 2011, when a young Thiago Alcántara (20 years 140 days) left such a mark in a duel against Villarreal .

The confidence that Quique Setién deposited in the youth is being more than paid off by the player himself. In recent games he provided formidable performances, which could lead him to become part of Barça’s starting eleven in the second leg of the Champions League knockout round against Napoli.
