Griezmann goal Vs Real Betis: Watch Griezmann scoring a wonder goal to make the Catalan giants win even after trailing in first half.
Barcelona had a goal fest with Real Betis, even though the visitors scored two goals, yet they faced a massive defeat against Barcelona as Ernesto Valverde’s side scored 5 goals past him.
At first, it seemed like Barcelona will lose as Los Verdiblancos gained lead in the first half of the game after Nabil Fekir scored his first goal in La Liga, and Barcelona were looking out of rhythm.
It looked as if it is the repeat of what Barcelona faced in the first game of La Liga last week, as they lost 1-0 against the Basque club. However, after the first-half break, Barcelona made a spectacular return and came over the deficit to win.
The credits for it should definitely go Griezmann, who scored a brace to first level the score after he tapped in an aerial ball by Sergi Roberto to register his first goal for Barcelona. In less than eight minutes later, the French International scored once again scored to bring Barcelona at advantage.
Surely, it was the perfect way to come at an advantage in style, as the new Barcelona signing scored from outside the box to gain a lead over Real Betis.

The confetti celebration by Griezmann was inspired by a famous celebration by veteran Basketball player Lebron James. The act by the French international was reportedly a homage to the legendary basket player and it got so much attention that James himself reacted to it later.
