To Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann only was missing them time to accustom to play together and give sample of his explosion of good football. In the last weeks have reaffirmed that they are a lethal pair for the rival defences and that, if they keep this level, to the FC Barcelona will not be missing him goals in the last stretch of the season, in which the culés play the possibility to achieve the title of LaLiga.
With five parties for contesting, Messi and Griezmann add 52 goals and 26 assistances between the two, figures that have gone in promotion in the last weeks, when it has seen more complicity between the two in the field, a factor that has been very key for the 'resurrection' of the Barça of Ronald Koeman in this 2021, although it still remains a lot of work for doing so that both head to the blaugrana to the title of the League.
From the final of the Glass of Rey, in front of the Athletic of Bilbao, noticed that every time they were more connected. They exchanged passes constantementes and felt comfortable, in front of the absence of Ousmane Dembélé in the initial alignment. In that opportunity, in The Cartuja, the French opened the tin in the second part and later 'The Flea' marked his doublet to sentence the party.
The reality is that between the two have marked more than 63% of the total of goals of the Barça. In the case of Leo Messi, the figures are impressive. To his 33 years, has marked 34 goals, delivering 14 assistances to his mates in 43 official parties contested. In LaLiga, already has marked 26 so many and gives steps of giants to do once again with the Pichichi, surpassing to Karim Benezema, Gerard Moreno, among others.
The 'Principito' does not remain backwards. Along the season, has added 18 so many, in all the competitions, with 12 passes of goal to his mates in 46 parties until the moment. The French has gone of less to more in this course and now is taking advantage of all the opportunities that gives him Ronald Koeman, turning into the maximum second artilleryman of the Barcelona staff.
A lethal society
The most positive of these last weeks is that the society between both already gives resulted. Griezmann, in fact, is the player that more assistances has delivered to Leo Messi (5), whereas the Argentinian has left him a goal in tray of square to the Frenchman. The last big action between both took place in the party between the Barça and Granada, when a manoeuvre sensacional of Griezmann finished with the goal of 'The Flea' to open the marker in the Camp Nou.
