The debut that changed Barça forever

On October 16, 2004, Leo Messi played his first official game in the Barça shirt. In the 82nd minute against Espanyol aged 17 years, 3 months and 22 days and with the number 30 on his back, the Argentine stepped onto the pitch as an FC Barcelona player for the first time. The Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium was witness to the young man's first steps in his professional career. A game that changed the player's life and Barça's history.
