BASKETBALL-MAD Antoine Griezmann channelled his inner LeBron James as he celebrated his first two goals for Barcelona.

The £108million man took centre stage with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez missing and Philippe Coutinho having left earlier this week.

And despite Barca finding themselves a goal down, Nabil Fekir opening the scoring for Real Betis, Griezmann stole the show.

The World Cup winner equalised just before half-time, volleying home a perfect pass from Sergi Roberto.

But he went one better in the second half, cutting inside his man and curling an unstoppable strike into the far corner.

Ever the showman, Griezmann had prepared for his big moment.

A staff worker at the Nou Camp had a tub of red and blue glitter ready, pouring it into the forward’s hand.

Griezmann then threw it high above him into the air – just like LeBron.

The NBA legend has been doing the same routine for years in his warm-up, although he uses hand chalk rather than glitter.
