Aligned from the start by Ronald Koeman in Getafe, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembélé disappointed, as too often. A sad copy that angered the Spanish media this Sunday.
FC Barcelona fell for the first time this season on Saturday at Getafe (1-0, 6th day). Beyond the result, two men disappointed, Ousmane Dembélé and Antoine Griezmann. The world champions, who started at kick-off, had time to get into action, which neither of them managed to do. However, Ronald Koeman had decided to position the former player of Atlético de Madrid in the axis, his preferential position. Griezmann did not know how to take advantage of it, he even missed a golden opportunity at the half-hour mark. Thrown in depth by Pedri, the number 7 misused his face-to-face with the goalkeeper and shot in above the goal.
An incomprehensible failure for everyday life Sports world, which did not spare Ousmane Dembélé, author of a poor performance. Koeman favored the former Rennais over Ansu Fati, a surprise he could not repeat given what the Frenchman showed. “In the first phase of the match, he was active, intervened a lot, but did not finish anything. As soon as he got the ball back, he lost it. He did not make the differences, nothing that could make us think that he would continue to be established in the next matches ”, supports the media. With two starred players in Russia in 2018, FC Barcelona thought they had won everything, it is quite another.
