In spite of the criticisms, the season 2019-20 of Antoine Griezmann has been better, for now, that the one of Joao Félix and Eden Hazard, the signings crashes of Atlético and Real Madrid
A lot it has criticised to Antoine Griezmann this season 2019-20, so much in the press of the Spanish capital as in the Catalan, and the Frenchman has not finish to convince neither, at least in his majority, to the Barcelona fans. Perhaps it was because all the world, when knowing that it treats of one of the best players of the world and have him enjoyed already during a lot of years in LaLiga, expected more than his contribution.
This first year of adaptation of Griezmann, however, neither can say that it have been bad. It has been better, in fact, that the ones of Eden Hazard and Joao Félix, the signings crashes of Real Madrid and Athletic the past summer. After an alike economic investment by part of the three teams, the one of Macon is the one who more parties has played, the one who more minutes has accumulated, the one who more goals has marked and the one who less has lesionado.
Taking like example the data of LaLiga Santander 2019-20, Griezmann played 35 parties, by 27 of Joao Félix and only 10 of Hazard. Regarding goals, the Barcelona annotated 9 targets (15 if contabilizamos all the competitions), gone on down Joao Félix (6) and Hazard (1). Also in minutes the differences have been very big between the three contendientes: 2.558 minutes for the French, 1.746 for the luso and 1.086 for the Belgian.
In spite of his little participation, Hazard himself has dominated in the chapter of assistances with six passes of goal, by four of Antoine Griezmann and so only one of Joao Félix. In any case, regarding the participation by goal, the more resolutivo of the three has been the Frenchman, with 15%, gone on down Joao Félix (13%) and Hazard (10%). Likewise, in percentage of minutes played, the numbers go back to plant to Griezmann by in front of the rest, with 75% of minutes played, gone on down the young talent of the Athletic (51%) and the one of the Real Madrid (32%).
In titularities, Griezmann aventaja to Joao Félix and to Hazard: 31 parties of 38 possible. The Portuguese went out in the eleven initial in 21 occasions and the Belgian alone 14 times. Joao Félix was the most substituted in the second parts (6 parties), gone on down Griezmann (4) and Hazard (2). And the one who more times remained in bench was Hazard: 3 parties, by one Griezmann and any the young Portuguese talent Joao Félix.
Griezmann Almost no lesiona
Finally, it fits to stand out that the injuries have respected in general to Griezmann during almost all the season. Hazard Is the one who has lost more split by physical ailment, with a total of 17, whereas Joao Félix was not available for Diego Simeone in 10 parties. Griezmann Only has lost two, the last meetings in front of Osasuna and Alavés, by annoyances in the cuádriceps.
In brief and taking like base these variables (although there is a lot of more), can say that Griezmann has had more positive impact for the FC Barcelona that Joao Félix and Eden Hazard in the Athletic of Madrid and the Real Madrid, respectively. Of course we speak of three 'cracks' that, after this first campaign of adaptation, sure that little by little they will improve his numbers to start with to turn into leaders of his teams.
