Video: Griezmann wonder-goal for Barcelona vs Villarreal is near-identical to classic Messi strike

Antoine Griezmann scored a delightful goal for Barcelona last night, and in fact it was almost identical to one scored by Lionel Messi not so long ago.

In March last year, Messi scored one of his most memorable goals with a delicate chip from the edge of the box against Real Betis – a strike that was special even by his extremely high standards.

Griezmann has not had the best debut season for Barca, but this superb effort will hopefully help endear him to the club’s fans.
