The 16-year-old is in line for his debut in Europe’s elite club competition having made Barcelona’s 22-man squad for the showdown against Lucien Favre’s men in Westfalenstadion.
And should he find the target, he will eclipse the Ghanaian’s feat. Ofori-Quaye was aged 17 years and 195 days for Olympiacos against Rosenborg in October 1997.
Still 16 years and 322 days when Blaugrana begin their campaign in Germany, the Guinea-Bissau prodigy has almost the entire season to achieve this feat should he fail to score against Die Borussen.
