Antoine Griezmann joined his former club in the last minutes of the transfer window. Although he has not regained his best level, he is sorely missed at Barca.
Certainly, the French international signed a disappointing performance for this return to Atlético de Madrid. The Spanish press did not spare him despite the victory of his family (2-1) against Espanyol Barcelona. To make up for the loss of Griezmann, the Barça bet on Dutch Luuk de Jong. The compatriot of Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong and Ronald Koeman could play their first match on Tuesday night against one of the best teams in Europe: Bayern Munich. For good reason, the Blaugranas show a new loss in attack.
According to Spanish media information, Martin Braithwaite reportedly sustained a serious injury and is expected to return to the pitch in three to four months. In this troubled time, the presence ofAntoine Griezmann would not have been too much for the Catalans.
Ronald Koeman continues his hard work in the most indebted club of the moment. With the losses of Messi and Griezmann, combined with the injuries of Braithwaite, Sergio Agüero and Ousmane Dembélé, the Dutch tactician has little choice to put together a team capable of competing with the great Bayern. Especially since the new n ° 10, Ansu Fati has not yet resumed competition following his long period of absence. Hopefully for Barcelona fans that the Bavarians will not inflict the same beating as in their last confrontation in the quarter-finals of the Champions League (8-2).
