Antoine Griezmann arrived in summer to become the new partner of Leo Messi in the attack of Barça but, for now, there is little connection between the two
In summer of 2017, broke in the FC Barcelona a 'trident' offensive totally lethal: the formed by Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar. The Brazilian went down of the ship to leave to Paris Saint-Germain and, since, the Argentinian and the Uruguayan monopolised the effectiveness goleadora of the team, creating an excessive dependency in the presence of both.
Thus, the sportive direction, in consensus with the technical body, decided to pay the clause of Antoine Griezmann, a footballer of tremendas technical and tactical virtues that, by capacity goleadora and style of game, saw like the perfect candidate to complete the trident. In fact, ilusionaba especially the connection of the crack French with Messi, when being two footballers that understand the football of similar way.
Nevertheless, there is something that does not finish to work between them. The connection between Griezmann and the Barcelona captain seems to be stagnated and the clearest proof was the party against the Slavia of Prague, in which hardly they looked for mutually. The Argentinian gave him three passes to the French and this only one to the '10'. It was all what combined along the 90 minutes.
In fact, there is a played that defines to perfection the worrisome fault of chemistry between both. In the first time, Messi made one of his typical played in eslalon throwing the diagonal and the defence of the Slavia threw him on, neglecting to a Griezmann that remained entirely only. The Argentinian, in place to look for the favourable position of the Frenchman, decided to throw and true, almost marks a golazo, but the balloon finish in the crossbar.
Never we will know of the true if the captain did not see that Griezmann was only or if really yes saw him but decided to do the war by his account. Nevertheless, flame especially the attention that against the Slavia, in front of the absence of Luis Suárez, was more necessary that never that both looked for to generate danger. But this no sucedió and the party finished without goals.
New 'case Ibrahimovic'?
In 2009, the FC Barcelona fichó to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, that arrived as 'galactic', pertinent of the Inter of Milan. It expected a lot of the connection of the Swedish with Leo Messi, but never finish to have chemistry in spite of treating of two extraordinary footballers. At the end, Inra finish relegado to the bench and traspasado to the drop a year after his arrival. A case that begins to remember to the of the Argentinian with Griezmann...
