While there are players who've scored in El Clasico at a younger age, few, if any, did it with quite the impact of Lionel Messi.
His first goals against Real Madrid came in the form of a hat-trick in 2007, as three Camp Nou strikes helped Barcelona claim a draw in an exhilarating 3-3 encounter.
He's done alright since.

6. Vinícius Júnior

It wasn't the prettiest goal scored in El Clasico history, but Vinicius wouldn't have cared tuppence when his heavily deflected strike opened the scoring for Real.
His goal in March 2020 set the tone for a 2-0 win for Los Blancos, a crucial clash in that season's title race as Zinedine Zidane's side moved above Barça in the table, eventually going on to win La Liga.

5. Francisco Calvet

Not all of the youngest scorers in the fixture came in recent times, with teenage players having decorated El Clasico clashes for years prior to the turn of the century.
In fact, 59 years prior, to be exact.
Francisco Calvet netted Real's first goal in a 4-3 win back in 1941. An unforgettable moment for the centre-back.

4. Roger García

Now we're talking. Getting into the very young crop, Roger Garcia entered the history books when he scored Barcelona's equaliser in a 1-1 draw back in 1995.
The midfielder wouldn't go on to secure legendary status like some of the other players on this list, but his place in Clasico folklore is secured for many years to come.

3. Raul

That 1-1 draw back in 1995 sure was memorable.
Garcia grabbed the equaliser, but a player 204 days his junior had already opened the scoring that day; none other than Raul.
His 12th minute strike made him the second youngest scorer of this fixture in history, and the youngest of the 21st century. He'd go on to scored 14 more times against Barcelona for Real.

2. Ansu Fati

17 years of age. It's remarkable to think that a player that young is even taking part in a fixture of this grandeur, let alone scoring in it.
Ansu Fati is on a record-breaking streak at Barça, although this particular record hasn't actually been broken. His equaliser in the 3-1 defeat to Real was thought to have him as the youngest ever scorer in Clasico history – Barcelona acknowledge him to be – but facts are facts and his close-range finish now has him placed second on the list.
Still, doesn't take anything away from what a special talent the Spanish forward is.

1. Alfonso Navarro

FCB 1-1 RMA (9’) – Ansu Fati (17 años y 359 días) es el SEGUNDO goleador más joven en TODA la historia del #Clasico. El récord (que podría batir Pedri) sigue en manos de Alfonso Navarro que marcó con 17 años y 356 días (solo tres días menos que Fati) en el clásico del 30.03.1947.

Age: 17 years, 356 days
Party pooper Alfonso Navarro still holds a record he set in 1947, and it's one that is unlikely to be broken – Sorry again, Ansu – any time soon.
Barcelona won that particular battle 3-2 in 1947, with Navarro scoring either side of half time. Scoring his brace at a full three days younger than Fati, the striker still remains top of the pile for this particular accolade.
In his career he enjoyed two separate spells with La Blaugrana, sandwiched between a year with, you guessed it, Real Madrid.
