Antoine Griezmann broke the deadlock and put Barcelona ahead in the final of the ‘Copa del Rey’. The Frenchman beat Unai Simón after a great delivery from Frenkie de Jong.
After a first half of dominating possession without anything to show for it, Barcelona came out a different side in the second half and soon found the route towards goal.
After Unai Simon saved three times from clear chances for Pedri, Busquets and Griezmann, the French striker himself made up for his error to make it 0-1.

The Frenchman made the most of a magnificent low cross played into the box from the right by Frenkie de Jong, which found the striker after a great piece of play from Messi.
The Dutchman put it on a plate for Barca’s number 7, who was unforgiving infront of Unai Simón, playing the ball first time into the back of the net with pin-point accuracy.
