Everyone expected Messi, but it was Griezmann that made it 1-0

Antoine Griezmann put Barca ahead in the Spanish Super Cup final when he collected a dead ball in the box and beat Unai Simón with his left foot.

All eyes were on Leo Messi. This is how it was in the hours before the start, to know if the Argentine would make the match, and above all when it was known that, finally, he would be.

It wasn't the Argentine that received the spotlight in the final stretch of the first half, as Griezmann became the protagonist by scoring the first goal of the match.

It was the 40th minute when the Frenchman collected a dead ball in the box. Jordi Alba arrived with superiority on the left and crossed to the box, where Messi received and shot, but the defender blocked it.

It was then when the ball stopped at Griezmann's feet. In the role of poacher, he was tasked with hitting it with his left foot to beat Unai Simón with a low and powerful shot.
