For his third match with Atlético de Madrid, “Grizi” failed to open his goals counter and Diego Simeone’s men stumbled over Bilbao (0-0) on Saturday.
Already dying during his 3 matches at the start of the season with FC Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann does not do better since returning to theAtlético de Madrid. Holder for his 3rd outing with the Colchoneros, the 2018 world champion had little influence on the meeting and did not shake the nets before giving way in the 55th minute to Luis Suarez (Angel Correa was also lined up in front).
If the name of “Grizi” was booed by part of the public of Wanda Metropolitano before the meeting, the new number 8 of the Rojiblancos was spared during the game and was not specially whistled during his replacement, the supporters preferring encourage the entrants in play (Hector Herrera and Yannick Ferreira Carrasco were also launched before the hour mark).

On the other hand, after the meeting, the media did not fail to point the finger at the 30-year-old striker, who must do ” much better “In this team led by a” Cholo “who knows him however” by heart », As recalled Mark. He only shot once, without adjusting his recovery just in front of goal (15th), only attempted one dribble and, on only 22 balls touched, lost 7. Griezmann also shows no statistics defensive…
Without the French international on the ground, Atléti could not force the decision against the Basque Leones, especially as Joao Felix was sent off in the 78th minute rather stupidly, receiving a second warning for having spoken badly to the referee of the meeting. A few moments earlier, Marcos Llorente placeholder image had found the post with a cross strike (75th).
The reigning champion is at the top of the standings with only one point ahead of Real Madrid and Valencia, who face each other on Sunday in the shock of this 5th day of La Liga.
