It was later observed that the goal was totally identical to the one Messi scored last season, and the similarity between the two goals is absolutely uncanny. Although, Messi surely had a tougher angle back then.

Own-goal delayed the end of the drought

The goal was inevitable however, there was a twist as the goal-scorer was someone else. It was discovered when Greizmann was about to barge the ball inside the net, Pau Torres knocked the ball himself inside the net instead of defending it.
Therefore, the first goal of the game was declared as an own-goal, making Greizmann wait a little bit more. But finally, the French International managed to fetch a goal at last.
