Champions League youngest goalscorers: Jude Bellingham into top ten

Jude Bellingham has joined a top ten in which Ansu Fati took the lead last season.

Ansu Fati's Matchday 6 winner for Barcelona at Inter in the 2019/20 group stage made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, beating by 155 days the record set by Peter Ofori-Quaye in 1997 – five years before the Blaugrana forward was even born. Fati was subsequently joined in the top ten by team-mate Pedri in October 2020.

That sparked a trend, because two of the three 17-year-olds to have scored in UEFA Champions League knockout games have done so this season: Jamal Musiala, for Bayern at Lazio in the round of 16, then Jude Bellingham for Dortmund against Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
