Antoine Griezmann Scored The Sweetest Of Volleys Against Osasuna
Antoine Griezmann scored the sweetest volley to double Barcelona's lead against Osasuna this afternoon.
The Blaugrana were 1-0 up at the Nou Camp courtesy of Martin Braithwaite when Griezmann notched his best goal in Barcelona colours since his big-money move from Atletico Madrid.
During a Barcelona attack just before half-time, the ball was cleared to the edge of the area but only as far as Griezmann, who unleashed an unstoppable strike on the volley right into the top corner.
Sergio Herrera in the opposition goal didn't even have time to flinch as he could only stand and helplessly watch the net bulge.
Not content with his worldie strike, Griezmann would then lay on an assist for Philippe Coutinho to add a third for Barcelona, before Lionel Messi made it 4-0.

Griezmann now has four goals in 12 appearances across all competitions this season after being given the No.7 shirt by new manager Ronald Koeman.
Recently, the player's former agent Eric Olhats and uncle had been highly critical of captain Messi - who responded by saying, "The truth is that I'm a little tired of always being the problem for everything at the club."
Griezmann set the record straight and revealed his relationship with both men is virtually non-existent.
Speaking to Universo Valdano, Griezmann said: "He (Olhats) was very important in my life but I don't have a relationship with him anymore.
"I stopped having any relationship with him since the day I got married. I invited him to the wedding day, and he didn't come. That's why I stopped having a relationship with him.
"My uncle doesn't know how football works. And in the end, the journalist ended up getting the statement out of him. I told Leo that I never speak to them, in fact, I don't even have my uncle's phone number.
"My parents don't talk to Eric either, so who is going to talk to him? He can do a lot of damage, and create problems in the dressing room."
