Antoine Griezmann scored a quite stunning volley and produced an all-round super display as Barcelona comprehensively defeated Osasuna in La Liga.

But how did he perform overall?

📷 Antoine Griezmann: Match Performance

Barcelona lined up here in a different formation than normal, with Griezmann playing off Martin Braithwaite as the central striker. And it immediately looked better as a unit.

Griezmann threatened early, flashing a volley just wide of the target, before delivering the best moment of the match.

⏱️ 42' Coutinho tried to clip the ball into the area only for the defender to head away, and as the ball dropped Griezmann caught his effort perfectly on the volley to lash into the top corner.

A ⏱️ 54' And he very unselfishly handed an assist to Coutinho 10 minutes into the second half, squaring to the Brazilian when he could have shot himself, who tapped into the net.

Overall Griezmann had four shots and three were on target in the match.
