The sides are contesting the final of the Supercopa de Espana, a competition of heightened importance in this strange season.
Griezmann got his and Barcelona’s second as the game entered its final stages. Alba played a smart one-two with Ousmane Dembele before crossing for the French striker, who finished coolly to get Catalan noses in front.
There was to be a late twist in the tale, however – Athletic got back on level terms. Muniain whipped in another quality delivery to find Asier Villalibre, who smashed the ball into the back of the net to take the game to extra-time.
Los Leones scored another in the first-half of extra-time to take the lead. Muniain was involved again, feeding the ball to Inaki Williams, but this was very much an individual goal. Williams cut inside on his right foot before unleashing a stunning strike into the top right corner, giving Ter Stegen no chance.
