The one who did enter was Griezmann (88’), fourth against the Nasrid team in that game, although bad luck then went to the local goal Aaron, in which the ball bounced to finish entering. Luckily for the Catalans the Barça He managed to remedy that misfortune with goals and will be able to continue ahead in the Copa del Rey.
