The player has already produced 7 goals and 2 assists in 14 outings for the club this season. His goal-scoring powers were on display once more, as he scored a fine goal in a vital encounter against Brazilian powerhouse Flamengo.

The youngster was a significant player in this encounter. Foremostly he made the difference that helped his team to come out on top. He scored the opening goal for his club after a beautiful ball from ex-Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho. Vitor Roque levelled the game after Gabigol had given his opponents the lead with a penalty. Later in the game, he scored another goal but it was ruled out for offside. He was also instrumental in his team’s second goal which was scored by Erick. Meanwhile, FC Barcelona will be happy to note the youngster’s excellent form at the moment.
