Lamine Yamal & Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski’s goal in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Napoli made him the oldest player from Barcelona to score in a Champions League knockout game.

The Poland international scored in the sixtieth minute of play, but was left disappointed when Napoli stole a share of the points fifteen minutes later thanks to an equalizer from Victor Osimhen.

Lewandowski smashed Lionel Messi’s previous record, becoming Barcelona’s oldest goal scorer in a European knockout game, at the age of 35 years and 184 days.

Robert Lewandowski breaks a Barcelona record held by Lionel Messi in Napoli draw

Barcelona broke multiple records in the match against Napoli, including the 16-year-and-223-day-old winger Lamine Yamal becoming the youngest player to ever play in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Yamal’s records keep falling, but he has to act quickly to become the youngest player to score in Champions League history.

In the 2019–20 group stage final match, Ansu Fati, who happened to score for Barcelona, defeated Inter with just 40 days remaining on his 17th birthday. Yamal won’t break the record if he doesn’t score in this season’s competition.

Barcelona was also represented by the youngest player to ever score in a knockout match. When Bojan Krkic scored a goal against Schalke in April 2008, he was 17 years and 217 days old.
