Barcelona fans have taken to social media tonight to sing praises to two of La Masia’s latest up-and-coming stars.
Dutch duo on target
Ronald Koeman’s men were back in action recently.
After stuttering to just a couple of points in encounters with Granada and Cádiz over the course of the past week, the Blaugrana were well aware that nothing more than a victory would do, when they welcomed Levante to the Camp Nou for a league clash.
And, at the end of the day, returning to the path of victory is precisely what Barça has achieved.
A refreshing and commanding display, throughout which the hosts finally seemed to show off an air of offensive momentum, finally culminating in a final score of 3-0.
Memphis Depay was the first to score, conceding from the penalty spot after being brought down in the Levante area in six minutes:

There were two of them, shortly after, when the arrival of the summer Luuk de Jong launched his account with the colors of Barcelona with a confident finish beyond Aitor Fernández.
And then there was time to add some sparkle to the scoreboard later, as Ansu Fati’s return sparked raucous celebrations throughout the Camp Nou, guiding Koeman and company. up to 5th place in the table of the highest Spanish category in the process.
Following the completion of the action in Catalunya, due to a display that realistically should have resulted in a much larger margin of victory, since then it has not been a surprise to see a host of Barcelona stars singled out for praise. . .
The likes of Sergino Dest and Memphis Depay threatened throughout the proceedings, playing a central role in the final result, courtesy of a combined goal and assist.
None, however, have seen their more prominent names after the showdown than midfielder pair Gavi and Nico.
The two promising talents received surprise outings in the middle of the park tonight, in the absence of Pedri and Frenkie de Jong.
And to say that Nico and Gavi continued to make their chances for more playing time throughout the rest of the season, little damage would be an understatement.
The two talented midfielders were completely impressed throughout, and the former in particular, who just turned 17, looks poised to become a legitimate star in the near future.
In turn, the faithful of Barcelona since then have turned to social networks in absolute numbers, to show their emotion with the last couple of graduates of the La Masia first team:
Thank you tweet to Nico and Gavi. The future is bright.

If it was not known yet, it should be now. Puig, Nico and Gavi have shown today that they DESERVE minutes over Coutinho and Roberto… A LOT.
