Barcelona academy graduate mobbed by teammates after winning goal 23 seconds into senior debut


Coming off the bench for his very first minutes at Barcelona, ​​17-year-old Marc Guiu took just two touches to score.

The completely unknown academy graduate emerged as a late roll of the dice at home to a stalwart Athletic Bilbao side, and broke the deadlock just 23 seconds later.

Collecting a pass from Joao Felix, Guiu, born in 2006, took one touch to bring the ball into the penalty area, and another to push it past Unai Simon for the match-winner in the 80th minute.

The teenager looked absolutely stunned to have scored so early on his debut and fell to the ground when the referee confirmed the winning goal with a whistle ten minutes later.

Guiu’s impact was particularly unexpected since he wasn’t even playing for Barcelona B before the match, but was two levels down for the U19s before his call-up.

A striker by trade, Guiu arrived with Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha both out of action, while there are further injury concerns with Jules Kounde, Pedri, Sergi Roberto and Frenkie de Jong.

Manager Xavi’s gamble to sign Guiu also gains importance with what also follows, a La Liga tie against arch-rivals Real Madrid.

Real drew against Sevilla a day earlier and are now just one point ahead, meaning Saturday’s El Clasico showdown could be the most important in years.
