The Argentine went into the half-time break on a brace, with Ronald Koeman's men leading 3-1 against Getafe in what was an entertaining LaLiga match of football.
While he had a few chances to secure yet another career hat-trick, Messi's best opportunity to score a third came late on in the tie when Griezmann was fouled in the box and Barcelona was awarded a penalty.
Messi, Barca's designated penalty-kick taker, instead gave his colleague Griezmann the ball, a gesture that has been described as "classy" by many in footballing circles.
The France international managed to tuck the ball away to complete Barcelona's emphatic 5-2 victory at the Camp Nou, a result that sees the Spanish giants remain in third place in the table with a game in hand over second-placed Real Madrid and leaders Atletico Madrid.
