Antoine Griezmann had a decisive role in the Camp Nou against Betis, but in the away games against Athletic and Osasuna went unnoticed
Antoine Griezmann was the big bet of the FC Barcelona of face to the present season. The Barcelona, conscious that Philippe Coutinho did not work, opted for restarting the interest in the French forward to increase the offensive potential, that depended too much of the capacity goleadora of Luis Suárez and Leo Messi.
With the absence of the Argentinian and of the Uruguayan by injury -in addition to the one of Ousmane Dembélé- expected that Antoine Griezmann took leadership in the forward of the FC Barcelona. His debut suspender belt like Barcelona was in Saint Mamés, against the AthleticClub , and his apparitions were few determinants and in dropper, so much playing of extreme as of ariete.
In said party, accompanied him Luis Suárez and Dembélé, but in the one of the second day, in the Camp Nou against the Real Betis, did not have them by injury, being accompanied by Rafinha Alcántara and Carles Pérez. It was then when Griezmann shined and yes was decisive with two authentic golazos that put illusion in his figure of leader in absence of Messi.
But then to the FC Barcelona touched him visit the Sadar to confront to an Osasuna guerrillero and Griezmann, far of the Camp Nou, went back to disappear. The French hardly had incidence in the game neither presence in the area to finish, yielding the leadership to players like Ansu Fati or Carles Pérez, that had to appear in front of the ineffectiveness of the French.
Griezmann Is not '9'
In absence of Luis Suárez, Griezmann sees forced to act like man of reference, something that does not benefit to his game, more creative and asociativo. Against Osasuna, participated little in the game, evidenciando that needs to have to a player like the Uruguayan by in front to win in influence.
Against the Betis, worked well like leading centre thanks to the spaces that found between lines. However, in a party of much less space like the one of Osasuna and in a more reduced field of dimensions, Griezmann needs to play by behind another tip to be able to go in more at stake and generate he same the spaces.
