With key attackers like Raphinha, Joao Felix, and Ferran Torres sidelined due to injuries, Yamal has earned a regular spot in the starting lineup, featuring in Barcelona’s last five matches across competitions.

During the Alaves game, the 16-year-old showcased his trustworthiness with the ball, tallying 57 touches. He completed 24 of his 31 passes with a 77% accuracy rate, drew four fouls, and won nine of his 17 ground duels. Additionally, Yamal made four tackles, an interception, and a clearance.

Throughout the season, Yamal has featured in 32 matches for Barcelona across various competitions, contributing three goals and five assists.
