Antoine Griezmann went back to have a very poor performance against the Naples, something that leaves in the air his titularity against the Bayern Munich
Antoine Griezmann was one of the footballers that foresaw indisputable for Quique Setién of face to the party against the Naples. And no by the short staff of the culés, but by the blind faith that has him to the ex star of the Athletic of Madrid. But the result was very in the line of what is being the French this season: a very grey party, with little offensive influence and with more effort that shine.
It is thus that Quique Setién could meditar very seriously replace to Antoine Griezmann in the party of quarter-finals against the Bayern Munich. The curious is that it would not do it by Ansu Fati, his natural relief by position in the forward, but it could withdraw to the Frenchman to reinforce the centre of the field, as it has done in more than an occasion in the present season, applying a 4-4-2 in rhombus.
Of face to the party against the Bayern Munich, Quique Setién will have to his disposal to Sergio Busquets and to Arturo Vidal, two footballers that did not play against the Naples by sanction. So much the Catalan like the Chilean are indisputable headlines for the trainer santanderino, by what will form in the centre of the field beside Frenkie of Jong and, if finally Antoine Griezmann is not headline, will do it beside a fourth midfield player.
Sergi Roberto has big possibilities to be the fourth man of the medullary of the FC Barcelona, accompanying to the intocables Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal and Frenkie of Jong (Riqui Puig with few options to go in in spite of that yes it would deserve it). It can not descartar that Antoine Griezmann go to be headline, but the most likely after his bad party against the Naples would be that Quique Setién opted by a 4-4-2 as it did against the Athletic of Madrid.
And more against a team like the Bayern Munich, that will go out to bite to the FC Barcelona from the first moment and that will go to look for the command of the party through men of quality like Thiago Alcántara, Leon Goretzka or Joshua Kimmich. Reinforce the centre of the field could be key against them and, besides, would allow to leave to Antoine Griezmann like man of soda in case to need more offensive power.
Antoine Griezmann needs to improve but contributes goal
The party of Antoine Griezmann against the Naples was toneless and his performance has to improve to ensure the place, but the true is that we are speaking of the third maximum goleador of the team with 15 targets annotated. One of them was the one of the duel of gone against the Italians, that was very important to give tranquility in the turn. By this capacity to appear in key moments in spite of not playing well, the Frenchman has options to keep the place at the side of Leo Messi and Luis Suárez.
