Holder for his return with Atlético, Antoine Griezmann was released from the hour mark on the lawn of Espanyol. From the bench, he saw his team snatch victory (1-2).
The magic did not immediately work for Antoine Griezmann. For his great return toAtlético de Madrid, the French world champion hoped to display the same level as that which was his with the Blues, Tuesday evening, against Finland (2-0). Instead, we found… Barça’s Griezmann, the one who had been the author of a very discreet start to the season, to say the least.
For the first time since his departure two years ago, “Grizi” was therefore titular, associated with Luis Suarez at the forefront in Diego Simeone’s 5-3-2. The complicity between the two men did not jump to the eyes, and the Frenchman was out for the hour of play, after not being very much in value. Only flash: Griezmann is at the start of the action on a goal denied to Thomas Lemar (53e).
Unlike Griezmann, Lemar, he scored points. Very disappointing with the Blues, the former Monegasque changed the face of his team, he who entered at the break while Espanyol led the score thanks to Raul de Tomas (1-0, 40th). After the equalizer of Yannick Ferreira Carrasco (1-1, 79th), Lemar gave the victory to his team after additional time (1-2, 90th + 9). Griezmann, he followed that from the bench.
