Griezmann and the need to be a storm again in Balaídos

Antoine Griezmann (Mâcon, France, 1991; 31 years old) has fallen like a waterspout in Balaídos on several occasions, especially in 2016. It is Celta, Atlético’s rival this Sunday (4:15 p.m., Movistar + LaLiga) on matchday 20 of LaLiga. An Atlético in need of goals and to recover sensations after his tie before him Getafe last weekend and that he holds on to the boot of his star: the Frenchman. Celta is his third favorite rival. The third player who has scored the most goals after Athletic (13), Valencia (11) and tied with Rayo and Valladolid with nine. Griezmann has rained and very hard against Celta, in Vigo, but it will not go for four years. And Atleti and the pink-haired boy himself need that goal more than ever.

The very story of this season needs it. An Atlético outside of Europe, of any Europe, at the first change, of any Europe, and of the Cup for Real Madrid in the quarterfinals when the Cup was the title to be brought to the mouth, joy, in a season which, like the past, has more gray than anything else. The only ambition to be fourth, at the moment it is being fulfilled but the games go by and Atlético does not finish hitting the tableto establish itself in those positions, to try to catch up with Real Sociedad and, if it adds up, sometimes, like last day, it is more due to the demerit of the rivals, Betis, Villarreal and others, that the same, they do not end up being forceful either, that of its own merits.
