Lionel Messi finds a new partner in Ansu Fati at Barcelona.

Ansu Fati and Lionel Messi have really become a brilliant duo that has caught the eye of many spectators. Barcelona started their season with two massive wins under Ronald Koeman as they scored a total of 7 goals in 2 games and they did not concede a single goal so far.

However, Messi and Fati can be the next big duo for the Catalans. After legendary parings like the MSN -Luis Suarez, Neymar, Messi or David Villa, Messi and Pedro, Fati-Messi can be the first thing in a long time that catches the eye of people once again.

Fati was absolutely fantastic and key in both the matches as he scored a brace in the first game and another one in the second. Meanwhile, the 33-year-old Argentine too is continuing to be the best in the world as he is leading this new side along with Ronald Koeman.

The youngster made his debut under Ernesto Valverde last year and by now he is already Spain’s youngest ever to get a goal on his national team appearances. The forward is extremely young, 17 years of age, and incredibly talented. If he keeps moving this way, there is no doubt that he will go on to be one of the world’s best attackers.

Messi did not score in the second fixture but his performance was extremely key in the second game. Both Leo Messi and Ansu received a ton of praise from teammate Sergi Roberto. The right back stated that he is extremely fond of Ansu Fati and that he has fit in extremely well with the rest of the team.

It can be a breakout season for the youngster as Barca do not have much senior forwards after Suarez’s exit. He can take inspiration from the club captain and learn under him, in a similar way Messi himself played under Ronaldinho. With this stellar start the 17-year-old can go on to have one of the finest years of his career and seal his name as a certified young talent with the likes of Kylian Mbappe.
