The penalty shoot-out that decided the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup between Real Sociedad and Barcelona, It was resolved in a happy way for the Catalans, but it was not exempt from blaugrana failures. Frenkie de Jong hit the post on the team’s first pitch, previously Jon Bautista had missed, but the big mistake of the night was made by Antoine Griezmann which sent Barça’s fourth penalty to the clouds giving some hope to his former team.
As is often the case with this type of glaring mistakes, the networks began to laugh through memes, laughs, which the player himself joined. The French liked several tweets of users who made jokes about the distance his penalty could have traveled “The ball boy who will have to go get Griezmann’s ball” wrote a twitterer adding one of the most famous photographs of an astronaut on the moon.
“Griezmann’s shot hit the wing of an airplane” and “Jumbo the penguin from Antarctica has found Griezmann’s penalty ball” are other tweets that the Frenchman liked, showing that he has taken his ruling with humor. The fact that his penalty remained anecdotal since Barcelona finally reached the final will have a lot to do with this attitude of Griezmann, who it would be the focus of all the criticism had it been the Real who finally reached the finall.
The player did not shine playing in the center in the absence of Messi but his quality was key assisting De Jong in the goal that put Barça ahead in the first part. Now, before the possible loss of Messi in the final, will have another opportunity to throw the team on his back in the great showcase that always represents a final.
