24 years and 170 days, youngest average age 

The arrival on the scene of several players from La Masia was one of the high points of the campaign for Barça. Not only did Lamine Yamal make a name for himself, but Pau Cubarsí also established himself as a regular in the starting line up. The two players were both in the team for the youngest XI of the season which came in the 4-2 win away at Betis in which Ferran Torres scored a hat-trick. 

Lewandowski and 17 different goalscorers

Robert Lewandowski was once again the top scorer for the blaugranes in La Liga. Pichichi last season in the league, the Polish striker scored 19 goals over the 2023/24 campaign. 

No-one else reached double figures with Fermín nabbing eight goals followed by João Félix and Ferran Torres on seven. Raphihna scored six time, Lamine Yamal five, Pedri four and Sergi Roberto three. With two goals were Frenkie de Jong, Vitor Roque, Christensen and Cancelo with Araujo, Marc Guiu, Gavi and Kounde finding the net once. 

Gündoğan, most starts
