Lionel Messi Completely Finishes Antoine Griezmann And His Reaction Is Priceless

Even for Lionel Messi's high standards, this piece of skill to beat Antoine Griezmann was a joy to behold - I mean, just look at Griezmann's reaction.

The five-time Balon d'Or winner ripped the Frenchman apart just before half-time, dribbling past him with ease as the Atletico striker looked on, wondering if he had indeed left the oven on at home.

It was a close game throughout, with both teams eventually taking away a point from the Wanda Metropolitano thanks to a last gasp goal from Ousmane Dembele.

But this moment involving Messi and Griezmann stole the show. Antoine just doesn't know where to look. "How did he just do that?"

It soon became a viral meme. Of course it did.
