Antoine Griezmann lived his first Barça-Real Madrid on Wednesday, and although he was not excellent, he made a good performance. The french was more hardworking than brilliant in the Clásico but was a support for the catalans
This Wednesday took place the expected first Classical of LaLiga, and FC Barcelona and Real Madrid left the fight by the leadership in tables. In the Camp Nou tightened a lot the pupilos of Zinedine Zidane, that cuajaron a big performance, but the ones of Ernesto Valverde knew to resist the bullying and with some chispazos of quality loomed to an intimidating opponent. A day more, both will share the first place.
In both edicts this was a party of premières, and in the one of the Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann was one of the debutantes. The one of Macon has measured in several occasions to the whites because in his years in Spain has been a member of the Real Sociedad and the Athletic of Madrid, but this was the first time that did it with the elastic barcelonista. Although many expected something more than a signing crashes, there is little that criticise him.
The French could not be decisive in the City Condal, but desfondó during the 83 minutes that was on the terrain of game. His years beside Diego Simeone have turned him into a total footballer, and although sometimes it throws in fault that was more a vertical forward, voracious and lethal, appreciates practically always his delivery and deployment, that supposes a decisive help for his mates in the medullary and the defence.
To the Frenchman cost him generate and shine in front of the 'merengues', and even so had his quota of leadership in attack. In the second time, when the party broke , had more eases for encarar to Dani Carvajal, to the that surpassed in some occasion. Also it went back to show that it understands well with Luis Suárez, and provided to Leo Messi a pass of which the rare Argentinian time fails. The '10' was is time more human that of habit.
Griezmann Goes to more in the Barça
Griezmann Still is far to be excellent in the Barça, but went back to show that his dynamic is ascending. Still it has to him demand more and he same recognises that it works to leave his footprint in the club, but meetings like the one of the RCD Mallorca, the Real Sociedad or the own Real Madrid confirm that every time it is more integrated and that treats to fit his virtues to help to the team. Character does not be missing him.
In moments of difficulty, the staff begins to see him like an argument to take into account, and if it gives another step forward, will reduce distances with Suárez and Messi. As it did usually Neymar, and also in occasions Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembélé, of the Frenchman expects that it assume responsibilities when his mates are not so fine, and little by little, is accepting the challenge. It is question of time that fulfil it.
