If Barça made a very poor copy against Eibar (1-1), Antoine Griezmann was the most disappointing player.
The terrible observation was made by Ronald Koeman. “To win La Liga, it will be very complicated. ” Half the championship has not even been played until the FC Barcelona So seems to have surrendered, sixth at 7 points from Real Madrid and Atlético, and maybe soon 10.
The most worrying being that Barça, in addition to not even winning one in two matches (7 victories in 15 days, a first since 2003), is playing badly. Like his copy made against Eibar this Tuesday evening (1-1). And in this very small Barça, the most disappointing player will have been Antoine Griezmann, according to Marca netizens.
Without Messi, he was expected
The French international was however moving in the axis, in a role supposed to suit him, with Pedri just behind and Martin Braithwaite just ahead. But he crossed the meeting like a shadow, settling for just a strike that fled the frame (42nd). And, this time, there was no Lionel Messi to interfere with his expression.
“It was the day he had to take a step forward in Messi’s absence, but he did not”, observes Sport, who gave him the worst score of the match (4/10, like Sergino Dest). “Without Messi, he had to carry the team, but he ended up being replaced”, adds Mundo Deportivo.
In fact, Griezmann was taken out in the 65th minute, as Barca were down 1-0. Koeman brought in Trincao and Philippe Coutinho. Immediately, Junior Firpo combined with the Portuguese and the Brazilian, before offering the equalizer to Ousmane Dembélé (66th). Who, him, scored points.
