Ansu Fati showcased his potential as the 17-year-old scored for Barcelona in their 2-0 win over Leganes, a result that took them five points clear of Real Madrid.
Playing at an empty Nou Camp for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak, goals from Fati and Lionel Messi gave Barca the three points and kept the pressure on Real, who play Valencia on Thursday night.
Fati, still only 17, became the second-youngest player ever to five La Liga goals when he fired home three minutes before the break.
The teenager has a long way to go until he catches up with Messi, though, and the Argentinian scored his 26th goal of the campaign in all competitions from the penalty spot in the second half.
