Antoine Griezmann will arrive without problems to the duel against the Napoli, a rival against which never has lost, for now, throwing a look to the statistics
The FC Barcelona will confront to the Naples next Saturday 8 August in the Camp Nou, and probably will do it with the presence of Antoine Griezmann in the forward. The French star already has recovered of his physical problems in the cuádriceps, and this Sunday was to title in one of the teams of the partidillo organised by the technical body of Quique Setién in the sanctuary blaugrana.
The Cantabrian technician wanted to endow to his players of a general essay in seen to the party in front of the Italian team, and 'Grizi' participated actively, showing that it aspires to the titularity in one of the most important duels of the course. Author of the goal of the Barça in Saint Paolo, in the gone of the eliminatory (1-1), fits to take into account that the attacker Frenchman premièred like goleador Barcelona the past summer in front of the Naples in the friendly of Michigan.
It can say, therefore, that the Naples is a rival that gives him well. It has played four parties in front of this group along his career (three with the Barça and one with the Athletic), in which it adds three victories and a tie. The two parties of the last turn of the Barcelona by United States were in front of the Naples, and in both Griezmann left good feelings.
On 8 August but of 2019 -curiously a year before the crash of Champions of the next Saturday-, Griezmann measured for the first time to the Naples with the Barcelona T-shirt in the Hard Rock Stadium of Miami. However, and in spite of the victory culé (2-0), that day the French did not see door. The goleadores of the commitment were Busquets and Rakitic.
Three days afterwards, nevertheless, 'Grizi' himself marked in the stadium of Michigan the second goal of the goleada Barcelona (4-0), in a party in which it stood out the forward formed by Suárez, Dembélé and the own Griezmann, all they goleadores, with the charrúa annotating by double game.
Griezmann, very motivated in Champions League
Of face to the duel of the Saturday, Griezmann will form trident with Leo Messi and Luis Suárez unless Quique Setién decide to bet of start by Ansu Fati, something little likely. The Frenchman already is to tope and fully motivated in front of the challenge of the Champions, tournament that never has conquered in spite of playing a final against the Real Madrid in 2016, when it failed a penalti crucial for the Athletic of Madrid. Four years afterwards, expects to change his European luck.
