Barcelona's Ansu Fati becomes the youngest player to score a brace in La Liga

Messi and Fati were unplayable for Barca

Ansu Fati is having a breakout season at Barcelona. 

The 17-year-old is starting to establish himself in the senior side and has made 18 appearances in all competitions, with 12 of those coming in La Liga. 

He started Sunday's fixture against Levante too and put in his best performance of the campaign so far. 

Fati scored a brace during Barca's 2-1 win at Camp Nou, becoming the youngest ever player to score a double in La Liga.

What makes his brace even better, is that Lionel Messi assisted both goals. 

That's two goals for Fati and two assists for Messi. Pretty good work from the pair. 

Check out the first goal below, which was set up by a magnificent pass from the Argentine:

Brilliant. The pass is wonderful and the cool finish is arguably just as good. 

This was Fati's second goal, which featured more unselfish play from Messi:

What a superb move from start to finish.

When Messi and Fati are linking up like this, it's impossible not to get excited as a football fan, no matter who you support. 

We just would have loved to see the teenager get a hat-trick tonight, with all three assists coming from Messi! But a brace is still seriously impressive. 

Fati and Messi were incredible on Sunday

The win for Barcelona means they have moved back within three points of La Liga leaders Real Madrid. 

It's getting very tight at the top once again in Spain and with El Clasico less than a month away, every win - and every goal - could be crucial in this season's title race. 

It's for that reason Barca will be hoping Fati can continue to get the goals and of course, it seems almost inevitable that Messi will bag himself some more assists.
