Griezmann, who joined Barca from Atletico Madrid at the beginning of the season for a fee of €120 million (R1.9 billion), inspired his side to a 2-1 come-from-behind win over minnows Ibiza with a second-half brace, including a 94th-minute winner. 

In doing so, the 28-year-old became the first and only Barcelona player to score in every competition the club has played in this season, having previously netted in LaLiga, the UEFA Champions League, and the Spanish Super Cup.

Griezmann's goals have come in the form of seven strikes in the league, a solitary European goal against Borussia Dortmund in the UCL group stages, and an effort against his former club Atletico in the Super Cup.

The France international, who was part of his nation's 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph, has now scored 11 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions after making a slow start to life at the Camp Nou.
