Ramon Azeez was a spectator for the entire duration as Lionel Messi put on a show at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes on Saturday.
Azeez was an unused substitute in the 4-0 bashing handed Granada by the visiting Barcelona side inspired by their captain, Lionel Messi.
The Argentine scored a brace, including his 48th goal from a free kick as Ronald Koeman’s men picked up a third consecutive win and extended their unbeaten run to eight games.
