It does some weeks that Leo Messi and Luis Suárez began to go in in the alignments titled of the FC Barcelona and to coincide with Griezmann and Dembélé, the others two forwards of the staff together with the jovencísimo Ansu Fati. And although it is true that the 'MSG' formed by Messi, Suárez and Griezmann surrendered to a grandísimo level against the Eibar in Ipurua, for the moment is showing irregular in these first compasses of the season.

True is that the three players still have not coincided too much, and that 'Griezzy' will need a time of adaptation that could last a whole season when having arrived pertinent of the Athletic of Madrid, club with a style of game radically distinct to the of the Barça. In spite of everything, exists a factor that definitely will hamper the integration of Griezmann in the trident, or that at least will not do him shine as much as did it the 'MSN' of Neymar.

It does not have at all that see with the fact that 'The Three Fellow' -as they called them in England- squandered a big chemistry inside and out of the terrains of game, but rather it is a positional question. Neymar Is a pure left extreme, and fit like ring to the finger in a trident with Luis Suárez like leading-reference and Leo Messi with total freedom, although splitting from the right band.

Griezmann, instead, has been accustomed during the last years of his career to play of second forward or mediapunta, much more by the centre that in the band and in a situation resembled the one of Leo Messi, with freedom of movements in the aledaños of the area. It is here where deploys his greater virtues and no hit to the line of cal, from where can not do so much damage.

Although Neymar Jr is an alarde of desborde, speed and dribbling that 'break' the defences from the left band and from here confines in the area to assist or mark, Griezmann is a player more than balcony of the area, where takes advantage of better his vision of game, shot and creativity. Of course also it can play escorado in the left-handed band, but here can not offer his best version and much less equalise the one of 'Ney'.

Hazard Could have fit better that Griezmann

In fact, it is possible that the signing-star of the Real Madrid this season, Eden Hazard, had fit better that Griezmann in a trident beside Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. The Belgian is accustomed to play hit to the band and has some conditions more resembled the ones of Neymar that to the ones of the French.

Extra challenge, then , for a Griezmann that can surrender to big level in the FC Barcelona as they did it David Villa and Henry, other big talents that found in identical situation that he. This yes, is possible that never can explode 100% of his potential... At least while it keep the 4-3-3 and Leo Messi follow having freedom of control in the forward. It could be the change of system to the 4-2-3-1 a solution?
