Puff of oxygen for Antoine Griezmann. The French forward of the FC Barcelona needed like anybody the goal of this Saturday, against the Alavés in Mendizorroza, for like this recover the confidence of face to door. Taking advantage of a refuse to backwards of Tomás Pina, that snatched the balloon to Ansu Fati, 'Grizi' was the smartest of the class to do with the spherical inside the area and hammer it softly in front of the exit of the goalkeeper.
Like this it transformed the French his first so much in this campaign 2020-21, after a lot of parties in which it had seen him very lacking of puntería, further that it followed manufacturing opportunities of goal. It did not mark from 5 July, when it beat to the Villarreal in the goleada to domicile (1-4) of the day 34 of the past League 2019-2020, and in League of Champions did it for the last time in the eighth of final in front of the Naples.
It accumulated already Griezmann at all less than 13 consecutive parties without marking, although in one was acting and other two lost by them to him a muscular injury. In fact, from the return of the activity futbolística after the stop forced by the pandemia, Griezmann only has marked an only goal in 19 official meetings, very bad figures and that do not correspond with his quality.

The goal of Griezmann did not serve to win
Already it has remained checked that where better plays Griezmann is in the mediapunta or of second forward, and no escorado in a band. Hardly it has capacity of desborde, and from the centre can take advantage of better his vision of game, capacity combinativa and of desmarque to create and materialise played of goal. In front of the Juventus already was about to to mark in several occasions, and this Saturday obtained the reward to his insistence.
The target of Griezmann in the 64', however, did not serve so that the FC Barcelona could arañar more than a point of the visit to Mendizorroza. The Alavés defended with nails and teeth and prevented that the ones of Koeman carried the three points, with some help also of a referee that did not signal a penalti committed in the first-half on Frenkie of Jong.
