Barca leads Griezmann comeback twice netted 2-1 Villarreal

Griezmann two goals Barccelona defeats Villarreal 2-1 leads in Liga table.

Twice netted in Just SEVEN Minutes from Frenchman, Antoine Griezmann was enough for Barcelona to earn all three points against a dogged Villarreal side who took the lead through Samu Chukwueze after the first goal at 26 minutes.

 Despite Barca having all of the possession in the opening minutes of the match, it was the hosts who had the first half-chance of any note with Gerard Moreno heading over from a corner. 

Antoine Griezmann’s goal-bound shot shortly after was cleared by Raul Albiol with keeper, Sergio Asenjo, on the floor, the visitors stepping up the pace in what was quickly becoming an entertaining tussle. 

Villarreal's Manu Trigueros was sent off for a foul on Lionel Messi.

An incredible Barça move on the quarter hour deserved a goal, though an equally brilliant save from Asenjo when Frenkie de Jong seemed certain to score kept the game goalless. The keeper was up to the task two minutes later when Leo Messi rifled a shot goalwards.

What's Next in Barcelona Bag.?

 Barcelona two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who are away to Athletic Bilbao in the late game on Sunday (20:00 BST).

 One of Barca's remaining six league games is at home to Atletico on 8 May.
