Barcelona fans notice Lionel Messi reaction to Antoine Griezmann glitter celebration
Lionel Messi watched in amazement as Barcelona’s new teammate Antoine Griezmann started Camp Nou on Sunday night at La Liga.
In the absence of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, it was up to Antoine Griezmann to lead the Barcelona line on Sunday night and met two goals in a 5-2 victory over Real Betis.
Messi is still recovering from a calf injury, but was seen in the stands with a big smile on his face when Griezmann celebrated his second night.
The Frenchman had previously canceled the opening goal of Nail Fekir and then gave them the advantage just after halftime with a sublime curly effort.
In a tone that looked like a tribute to NBA star LeBron James, Griezmann received a lot of glitter from a staff member who threw it into the air.
Fans noticed Messi’s reaction and rushed to pay homage to the couple on social media, which will connect in a formidable first line once the Barça talisman is completely fit.
“This duo from Messi – Griezmann will be crazy,” wrote a fan on Twitter.
“I swear that Messi’s spirit has just owned Griezmann,” added another.
Another wrote: “Messi’s face reflects that of all Catalans when he sees Griezmann’s goal. And they said they got along badly. “
After Griezmann had put Barça ahead in a crazy second half, Carles Perez, Jordi Alba and Arturo Vidal hit the bottom of the net before Loren added comfort to the hosts.
The possibility that Suárez and Messi will be his partner Griezmann will cause fear in the defenses of La Liga.
Barcelona fans should not have to wait long to see all three together, as Messi is already back in full training and could appear against Osasuna on Saturday.
Suarez received a blow in the 1-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao in their first game of the season, but it is nothing serious and is also in dispute.
