Antoine Griezmann will never forget the miss against his former club Real Sociedad in a La Liga match played at the Camp Nou.

Jordi Alba's ball across the face of goal beat everyone and it needed the Frenchman to apply just a simple tap-in to increase the lead for Barcelona.

Instead, the 29-year diverted the ball away from goal as Sociedad breathe a sigh of relief not to have conceded another goal.
