FC Barcelona won this Thursday against Getafe (5-2) during the 31st day of La Liga, where Lionel Messi scored a brace. Who could have turned into a hat-trick but the Argentine left it to Antoine Griezmann at the end of the match to shoot and convert a penalty.
Author of a double this Thursday in the victory against Getafe (5-2), Lionel Messi was generous. The Argentinian, responsible for taking penalties at FC Barcelona, left it to Antoine Griezmann to take charge of this exercise for the last goal of the evening.
16th goal of the season for Griezmann
It must be said that the 2018 world champion got the fault in extra time (90 + 3rd), caused by Soufiane Chakla. And Griezmann was able to do himself justice by completing this success of Barça, which allowed the Catalan club to return to third place in the standings, 5 units from Atlético de Madrid, but with a game behind.
With this achievement, after a fairly unspecified game, Antoine Griezmann scored his 16th goal of the season in all competitions, the 9th in La Liga. A nice total, but still far from Lionel Messi, still top scorer in the championship with now 25 goals in 29 La Liga games.
A nice gesture from Lionel Messi, already used in the past to leave penalties to his teammates. In the absence of Ousmane Dembélé, the six-fold Ballon d’Or and Antoine Griezmann were aligned together in attack. Their duo will be expected again this Sunday (4:15 p.m.) on the road to Villarreal, while the Catalan club only has the championship to play at the end of the season and hopes to win a new title.
