Lamine Yamal has been phenomenal this season so far for FC Barcelona at just 16 years old. Yamal shows his quality at such a young age by delivering great performances in the right-wing position when Raphinha is absent. Yamal is identified as the future of Barcelona and will follow a familiar path to Lionel Messi.

Yamal stepped in Barca's important 4-2 win against Real Betis in La Liga last weekend. He provided the assist for the fourth goal, where he delivered a perfect pass to Ferran Torres. Torres chipped the keeper to complete his hat trick, and both players were praised for their performances.

Yamal has recently received praise and criticism for Barca's loss against Bilbao in the Copa del Rey. Yamal scored Barca's temporary 2-1 lead in the first half after losing 1-0 in the first 40 seconds of the game. A great left-footed strike past the Bilbao keeper left Barca fans amazed and happy. Late in the game, when the game was tied 2-2, Yamal didn't take advantage of a mistake by a Bilbao defender. Yamal took the ball, got past the keeper, and sent the ball over the bar instead of the empty net.

Heavy criticisms by certain fans came his way. Many other Barca fans believe in him since he is so young and will improve even more in the next few years. One of the believers in Yamal is Lionel Messi. Messi foreshadowed the potential of Yamal in the past. Messi said, "There are many young players who will compete for the Ballon d'Or in the future. One of them is Lamine Yamal, who is very young and plays for Barcelona, he is important. Perhaps he will compete for it in the future."
