Antoine Griezmann returned to his old ways in Cádiz and was one of the weakest at Barça. The Frenchman seems to be getting lost next to Leo Messi and there are few games in which he shines next to the Argentine
Antoine Griezmann arrived to Ramón of Carranza after marking three consecutive goals. The French 'wetted' in Kiev in Champions League, also did it against Osasuna in League does a week and repeated in Budapest against the Ferencvaros this past Wednesday. Against the Hungarian and the 'rojillos' completed, in fact, two of his best parties of the course and gave the feeling that it went to be followed in promotion.
Precisely by all this, is even more disappointing his performance against the Cádiz of this past Saturday. The French, although it tried it, was quite inofensivo and hardly generated danger in the area of the cadistas, something that did much more complicated the dream of the traced back. It moved by the mediapunta, as it is used to him like, but did not upset to the defence of the Andalusians in almost any moment.
Play against a so shut saga like the one of the ones of Álvaro Cervera always is complicated and requires an exercise of patience and important precision. Besides, it does lacking disequilibrium, speed and understanding, something that Griezmann did not have with his mates this Saturday. The one of Macon played almost always in horizontal and did not know to understand with the rest of culés, especially with Leo Messi, something that begins to be recurrent.
The champion of the world with France and the '10' move by the same zone of the field and finish being the rosarino the one who finishes carrying the weight of the team when both coincide in the terrain of game. When the Barcelona captain has the day this is a blessing, but when it costs him more is a work, since the '7', that has to be the second offensive weapon barcelonista, does not be used to to appear.
It is striking how the ex of the Athletic of Madrid can happen to feel important and to like in, for example, Hungary, to almost not appearing in front of the Cádiz. But it is it even more seeing that against Osasuna, also with Messi in the field, yes knew to find his moment and his space in the party to stand out. It was as it was, it is evident that, in occasions, the French does not finish to find comfortable with Leo to his side.
Koeman Has to find the way in which they fit
Ronald Koeman will have to follow working in this appearance, since the two are the big stars of this Barça and the team needs that they complement . For now, they have been very few the days in which both have been to big level, something that concerns. His lace is being complicated, since the two want to play by the same place, but is mission of the trainer find a way in which both are comfortable.
