A night more, Antoine Griezmann walked like a castaway in the ecosystem of the FC Barcelona, and couldn't shine against the Celta. He was substituted by Luis Suárez in the second half
By a lot of that advance the dates in the calendar, Antoine Griezmann follows without progressing in the FC Barcelona and presents a stagnation that remembers, lamentably, to the of Philippe Coutinho. The French star so only adds a goal in the last eight parties, and four in the total of the 15 meetings that has contested to date this season 2019-20.
Instead of evolving, rather has involucionado and shows unable to equalise the big performance that made in the second day of the championship, when it annotated a doublet in front of the Real Betis (5-2). This Saturday, in front of the Celtic of Vigo, had a new opportunity for resarcirse and went back to desaprovecharla, without showing signals of adaptation to a band where does not find comfortable.
By a lot of that tries it, still has not learnt to speak the same language that Leo Messi and the rest of his mates in attack. In front of the celestial picture went back to run lost in the offensive line, and the only clear occasion of goal that had wasted it kicking to the 'doll'. Messi had yielded him a perfect pass to leave him only in front of the goal, and instead of trying adjust the shot... The Frenchman bet for popping the ball against the body of the goalkeeper.
Bad decision, since it generated the run-run in the terracing of the Camp Nou and, when it was substituted to few minutes for the end to leave his place to Luis Suárez, Griezmann could not avoid listen some whistles in the stadium. It is not for less, as it arrived to the Barça with the hándicap to show from the beginning his cost to dress of Barcelona, and is giving increasingly reasons to the fans to whistle him.
The FC Barcelona plays better with Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and some pure extreme like Dembélé or Ansu Fati, that can generate disequilibriums in the band. Griezmann Is not this profile of forward, and if it is not able to adapt to play hit to the line of cal, is possible that see relegado to the bench in some important parties.
Griezmann Will follow trying fit in the Barça
It knows perfectly that it has to improve, and that the patience is exhausting little by little in the barcelonismo. From now, it will have of some days of disconnection in which it will play with the selection of France and will look for to redeem in the stop FIFA.
When it return, it will touch him put the batteries and surrender to tope with the elastic Barcelona. If complete good performances in some of the next key parties that has the Barça in the calendar (Dortmund, Athletic...), including the Classical against the Real Madrid, will reconcile with the barcelonismo by the fast road. It will have to work hard to achieve it.
