Two goals to avoid the drama and a sports press drooling at the lips. Antoine Griezmann has done a great service to an entire club by getting Barça out of trouble all by himself in the 16th finals of the Spanish Cup, on the artificial ground of Ibiza, D3 club.
#Griezmann the "savior" author of 1 double, "faces" the front page of the relieved that # Barça av. 1 team B aligned Wednesday qualified narrowly vs Ibiza in 🏆 of the king.

20 minutes from the end, however, it did not smell good. A goal conceded, another refused for a stroller on Lenglet, a last failure we do not know how by the locals on a post and parade sequence at close range from Neto, Barça B, without Messi, was like nothing in a 3-1-4-2 with a single central defender and Jordi Alba in support of the French.
That cheer when Ibiza scored the opener against Barcelona 🥳

But the Frenchman played the savior at the right time on two delicious deep assists from Ratikic and Alba, the last after additional time. This will prevent Quique Setien from being questioned after less than a week on the bench, even if there is work. Real were not brilliant either, but won 3-1 on Unionistas' lawn.
Barcelona: 3-5-2, more than 1,000 assists and 82.6% possession, Quique Setien imposes (already) his leg
