Away from the Camp Nou, Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann are not doing badly at all. The two 'cracks' are beginning to shine in PSG and Atleti ... and do the Catalans already miss them?
While in the FC Barcelona battle with the fault of goal and creativity in the last metres, two of the stars of the team that abandoned the Camp Nou in the last summer, begin to shine in his new teams. It is the case of Lionel Messi, in the Paris Saint-Germain, and Antoine Griezmann, the one who returned to the Athletic of Madrid. They are in process of adaptation, that is not simple, but already begin to stand out .
For Leo Messi has not been simple, in no case, because it is his first experience in a different team after two decades in Can Barça. It landed in a PSG loaded of stars and little by little has gone adding importance. Against the RB Leipzig, in the third day of the phase of groups of the Champions League, was more decisive that never. With Mbappé and without Neymar Jr, 'The Flea' rescued to a Parisian group that remained without ideas to trace back to the Leipzig.
It annotated two goals; his first doublet with the PSG and third so much that annotates with the elastic Parisian, all in the Champions League. It has been the first step, but has warned in a sinfín of opportunities that wants to follow 'commanding' in Europe to base of goals and assistances. It has not weighed him, in no case, the bathroom of reality that was to leave of the City Condal when his intention was to remain. It follows 'on fire' and with win of much more.
Griezmann, by his part, freed of the pressure of his return to Wanda Metropolitan and has been the best news for an Athletic of Madrid that, although has big players, is not signing the start of season expected after proclaiming champion of LaLiga the past year. In his first clashes saw 'toneless', without arrival neither danger, but seems that it has left this backwards.
Against the Liverpool, in Champions, went the key of an Atleti that remained to a sigh of the traced back, or at least of the tie. It marked two goals, showed an impressive deployment and signed his candidature to be key for the ones of the 'Cholo' Simeone. His night remained marked by his expulsion, clear and necessary, but does not subtract the importance that can have for his... A balsam for the 'colchoneros'.
The Barça, in research of stars
The start of season of the FC Barcelona has been full of lights and shadows. The team continues in his Russian mountain regulate, to which all begin to accustom. A day play well against the Raise, sign a remarkable victory and afterwards fall in front of the Benfica and Athletic. Against Valencia went back to project, with limitantes, and in front of the Dynamo of Kiev won, but leaving a sea of doubts of face to the Classical.
Meanwhile, they are too many the interrogantes regarding the team. AnHis Fati is called to be the leader of the offensive, but can not have all the responsibility: it is very young and still needs time. Memphis Sins of altibajos, Of Jong is another history... There is not, for the moment, the one who fill the empty.
