Iniesta will face younger version of himself in face of Puig
- Legendary Barca midfielder was exactly of Puig's age (19) as he started paving his first-team way.
- Riqui is among the first candidates to be promoted to the first-team for the next season.
- The two are quite similar in terms of game vision and their roles on the pitch.
Saturday's encounter between Barcelona and Vissel Kobe will be in some way remarkable as Andres Iniesta and Riqui Puig could face each other on the pitch.
One of the most skilled La Masia prospects, Puig is sometimes called the "younger version" of Andres Iniesta as both are quite similar regarding their technical skills and game vision.
What's more, it's curious that Andres Iniesta started to be a regular starting XI player when he was 20. Puig is now 19 but he's already one of the most promising contenders for gaining the first-team promotion in the 2019/20 season.
Andres Iniesta spent 17 years at Barcelona and won 32 titles during this process. His trophy cabinet includes four Champions League and nine La Liga crowns. During this run, he made 674 first-team appearances for the Catalan giants in all competitions and scored 57 goals.
What future do YOU predict for Riqui? Will he be our next Iniesta or even the one and only Riqui Puig?
