The FC Barcelona premièred LaLiga 2019-20 with discontent, since it lost in his visit to Saint Mamés. The Athletic Club began biting although the Catalans crashed two balloons in the sticks, and after the mejoría in the second time, appeared Aritz Aduriz to put the balloon in the networks hardly a minute after having jumped to the lawn, when the chronometer already marked the 89.

The culés have some days to take out conclusions and analyse tarpaulins and errors, and is that this was a day with several warnings. It touched to play without Leo Messi in a stadium complicated and the problem was that the centre of the field atascó, leaving without arguments to a forward that neither lived his best night. The palm, this yes, carries it to him one of the recently arrived.

With Luis Suárez shut and Ousmane Dembélé more turn# off that of habit, to Antoine Griezmann touched him suffer in a meeting that left clear that still is in phase of adaptation. The chispazos of the pre-season ate them to him the 'lions' to underline that neither the Athletic of Madrid and neither the selection have to see with the demanding style that practise the barcelonistas, that will need his best version.

To the of Macon saw him stray first in left band, although it is true that no all the fault was his. With an eleven disordered, cost him generate very hit to the line of cal, where does years that does not play because his stage in the Real Sociedad remains already very far. In this side, remains shut without being able to desbordar, the centre is his only and predictable resource and besides the connection with Jordi Alba is for building, because both gave passes to any part in several occasions in which they coincided in zone of attack.

The Frenchman missed to a partner like Leo Messi, that accumulate rivals, see impossible passes and allow him move with more spaces. For the moment, it costs him assume a leading paper, because although had a nine to a side, east was moved away too many metres. The defence bilbaína had it quite easy to contain to a trident that had marvelled in the parties of preparation.

And almost more than the own Suárez regretted Griezmann the injury of the Uruguayan, because it forced him to play in tip. Without the corpulencia and the game of backs that turns into virtue the one of Jump, the champion of the world saw them to him and wished them to him to escape of the férreo labeling of the defenders, since it was in inferiority of conditions in aerial balloons and desubicado and too covered when the leather filmed by the green.

The challenge of Valverde is to fit to Griezmann in the Barça

Griezmann Has a lot for improving and will do it with the step of the parties, but the Barça has to be conscious of what has fichado and know take advantage of it to the maximum. It sold that the French was polyvalent and that it could play in the three places of the forward, but already knew all that was not a nine to the use and that the extremes are not so simple to interpret for which do not have happened culé. Neither it is leading centre neither an attacker of band, by what the challenge for Ernesto Valverde will be to fit him in an eleven that looks for to win all the titles at stake. The trip hurts, but the battle only finish to begin.
