Antoine Griezmann is going to be one of the keys of Barça this season so that the Catalans can aspire to all the titles. The Frenchman is assuming the role of scorer without Luis Suarez and so far he is performing in a fantastic way
Antoine Griezmann has been until the moment the most decisive player of the FC Barcelona in this Glass of Rey. The French saved to his in Ibiza with a doublet and inaugurated the marker against the Leganés this past Thursday in the Camp Nou. The ex of the Athletic of Madrid is turning into fundamental in this Barça, and now, without Luis Suárez, his paper will be even more important. He will have to exert of '9' in what it subtracts of campaign and will have to take a step forward.
This step, by the way, already is it giving and already is justifying the price that cost to take it out of the Atleti. The attacker Frenchman has marked a total of 12 goals in 29 parties between all the competitions and besides has attained to celebrate some so much in all they. It carries seven targets in 20 crashes of LaLiga, one in six of Champions League, three in two of Glass and one in the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain, where the culés fell in front of the Athletic.
The daily ACE, besides, signals a spectacular data of the forward that plants him in the history of the Barça. Any footballer from 1958 had marked never the three first goals in a Glass with the elastic barcelonista. Luis Suárez, the only Balloon of Spanish Gold, achieved this milestone in his period, and Griezmann has repeated it with his two 'chicharros' against the Ibiza and the one who put in front of the Leganés in eighth.
The Barcelona had the intention to incorporate a leading centre for this market in front of the absence of long length of Suárez, but finally has not attained it. In front of this panorama, Griezmann will be the offensive reference of the Barça beside Leo Messi and will do the times of '9'. Against the Leganés already played in the centre and tried to adapt the best possible to this new place. His qualities do not have at all that see with the ones of the Uruguayan, but can be important here combining to a touch with his mates, throwing desmarques and taking advantage of his instinct goleador.
It is evident that the ex rojiblanco is not a 'killer' as the charrúa, but yes has a lot of goal and does not be used to to waste occasions when they present him . When Griezmann has a clear opportunity, the normal is that second afterwards was in the corner celebrating his target. The Barça has to adapt to his style as '9' the best that can, since there is not doubt that he will put everything of his part to be the forward that need the blaugrana to conquer all the titles.
It could form a lethal pair with Messi up
It will be very interesting to see how manages with Messi in the forward without Suárez. In front of the Leganés, for example, both exchanged a lot his positions and this descolocó totally to the defence pepinera. The '10' is the leader and moves by where want to to connect with his mates and with his own game, whereas the '17 will have to accustom to this change of continuous roles and to be where has to be to be decisive of face to door. The two are intelligent, technically go sobrados and could do a lethal pair.
