As there was sucedido in the four previous parties of pre-season 2019, Antoine Griezmann went back to be title this Saturday in front of the Naples. It was the second meeting between both teams in less than a week, and the last opportunity for the French to première to level goleador with the Barça before initiating the official competition of LaLiga Santander.

Together with Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé, Griezmann formed a forward that theoretically had to be lethal for the Italian defence, although it did not go like this during the first 45 minutes of game. One of the first occasions of the commitment, and can that the clearest of all, was in the boots of the new French star. 'Griezzy' Received a perfect balloon of Luis Suárez to the edge of the small area, frank to drill the goal of Meret.

However, and in spite of that had almost all the goal to define, Griezmann adjusted too much the shot raso and the balloon left slightly diverted of the three sticks. The own Griezmann knew then that there was wrong a very clear opportunity; a goal that, to have it marked, would have been a carboy of oxygen and an authentic release.

The Frenchman every time has more pressure to his backs after the 120 million euros that has cost his arrival to the Camp Nou, and the 'pardon' that has conceded him for now the fans of the Camp Nou after the controversy that generated the summer happened with his documentary. In spite of that has given him a vote of confidence, Griezmann was not finish to start in the Barça.

Fortunately, this first goal finish arriving to the beginning of the second part, after a good combination between Aleñá and Jordi Alba that it left him the balloon to pleasure to send it at the end of the meshes, to empty door. Griezmann Drilled finally the goal of Meret and celebrated it with his mates, especially with Luis Suárez that it gladdened a lot by the target of the new 'crack' Barcelona.

It fits to remember that Griezmann practised a style futbolístico entirely distinct in the Athletic of Madrid, by what it will be necessary to give him time before it can show his best game with the Barcelona T-shirt.

The puntería of Griezmann, necessary

The most likely is that Leo Messi was not available to play the Friday 16 August in front of the Athletic in Saint Mamés, and Griezmann will be with total security one of the offensive references of the Barça in front of the Basques. A new opportunity, in definite, so that little by little it follow adapting to the Barcelona attack. And this first goal to the Naples, sure, will be a turning point.
