Calendar of FC Barcelona

The first season of Antoine Griezmann in the FC Barcelonaleft enough that wish if we speak in concrete of the performance. It is true that the French was the third maximum goleador of the staff after Leo Messi and Luis Suárez (annotated 14 goals in 47 parties), but did not convince neither in figures neither in his contribution to the game. It is thus that this season expected that it increased his contribution to the team.

By the moment, the start of his second campaign like culé is being even more disappointing: the 'principito' follow having performances very irregular and an important problem of face to goal. This campaign, Antoine Griezmann carries two goals annotated, a bagaje frankly low if we take into account all the opportunities that has had this campaign for 'wet'.

This Saturday, against the Real Betis, had a performance that describes to perfection what is being Antoine Griezmann in the FC Barcelona: the Frenchman failed three very clear occasions in the first time and later erró a penalti detained by Claudio Bravo. In the second time, achieved to mark to empty goal, but the enormous quantity of occasions wasted left a feeling agridulce by his part.

Against the group bético, playing like mediapunta by behind Ansu Fati, Antoine Griezmann connected with his mates, moved with intelligence and went a constant danger for the group of Manuel Pellegrini. However, his desesperante lacking of puntería did that a party that could have remained sentenced before the rest, complicated .

Griezmann Will have to do of Ansu Fati... And of Luis Suárez

The performance of the Frenchman against the Real Betis remembered to which had against the Juventus of Turín does some days: good movements, good associations but invalid tarpaulin goleador. But in the next months, the FC Barcelona will not have to Ansu Fati and will not be able to allow that a player like Antoine Griezmann follow without being productive in attack: the culés will need his goals as it was.

It is necessary to remember that, in summer, the FC Barcelona already lost to Luis Suárez, that carries years being the maximum second goleador by behind Leo Messi. Without the so many of the Uruguayan forward and without the ones of Ansu Fati, Antoine Griezmann has to step to forward in the team. In France follows showing that it has not forgotten to mark goals, by what Ronald Koeman expects of him that fine-tune his puntería.
