Antoine Griezmann was a happy man after ending his recent goal drought by netting a double in a 4-0 win over Granada on Saturday.

The Frenchman had gone seven games without a goal for the Catalan giants but scored twice and grabbed an assist on a good night for the visitors.

Griezmann’s first was initially ruled out for offside but later given after a VAR review and the Frenchman was in no doubt that it should have stood.

“In the first goal I didn’t think I was offside and that’s why I played on.

“When Ousmane gives me the ball [for his second], I tried to shoot and luckily it went in. They weren’t going in before but now it seems things are going well.

“We needed the three points, to win and keep up this run. I’m very happy for the work of the team. We have to keep getting all three points.

“We know it’s is a tough place to come and a difficult team. We started very well. We have to keep going like this. We have to pick up three points in every match, then we’ll see what happens.”

There’s no doubt it’s an impressive result for Barcelona and follows on from another good win in midweek at Athletic. The victory extends the team’s unbeaten run to eight games as they now head into a Spanish Super Cup semi-final against Real Sociedad on Wednesday.
