1×1 Barcelona: Griezmann still in can opener mode

first_imgRakitic: We still don’t understand Setien’s obsession to put a player who is light years away from his best level. Mediocre in all facets of the game, with the ball at his feet was a real agony. It was Setién’s first change, in the 55th minute. Two minutes later Barça’s goal came.From Jong: Bad game of the Dutch, always choosing the worst option. If you want to aspire to win the Champions League, you have to shake … and much.Arturo vidal: The best Messi partner in the field. And to say this of the Chilean is a recognition of his game and a stick to Setién, who does not know how to accompany his best player of valid and referential partners. His testiculin is positive for the ability to push the field but when the fuses blow, he gets into scrubs that do not touch. His attempt to header Mario Rui cost him expulsion.Messi: It is more alone than one. He made war on his own, although it didn’t always work out. The Argentine was overwhelmed, both by the defensive cobweb of Naples, and the poor effectiveness of his teammates. He could not shine at Maradona’s house, but he was the only one in the field who was able to silence San Paolo himself.Griezmann: It is beginning to gain fame of can opener. Not in vain has opened the scoring in a total of eight games. With these numbers he is justifying his signing. And that in the game continues to show a worrying irregularity, but at the level of numbers its performance is being incontestable.CHANGES:Arthur: The Brazilian gave meaning and criteria in the game.Ansu Fati: He could barely participate when entering the last minutes. Ter Stegen: He made the statue in the goal of Mertens, perhaps because of Piqué that prevented him from seeing the trajectory of the ball, but then he removed the spine with two interventions at the top of Insigne and Callejón. Decisive for Barcelona not to leave with the tie uphill.Semedo: Fundamental in assisting the goal of Griezmann, both for his deep clearance after a great pass from Sergio Busquets and later pass to the French striker. Fast and solvent in the right wing.Pique: The worst part is that the injured party ended in the right ankle in a fortuitous play after a bad jump. The central, before retiring from the field, was making a serious game, but because of him came the goal of Naples.Umtiti: The Frenchman continues to show clear symptoms of insecurity because of his slowness. At the start of the ball he gave reasonable solutions to the team.Junior: Fatal. Party to forget yours. Without ideas, without depth, without conviction and without forcefulness. If this is the level for the match at the Bernabéu, may God take us confessed.Sergio Busquets: It remains who best interprets Setién’s booklet. He lost more than one ball, but recovered dozens and also contributed play between the lines. Griezmann’s goal sprouted from his boots. The worst news is that he will not be back at the Camp Nou having seen a yellow and completing the penalty cycle.last_img
