Griezmann, from zero to zero

Statistics in football are sometimes misleading, but others give information that is difficult to refute. Something like this happens with Griezmann. His second stage at Atlético has not started on the right foot and his service record is full of zeros. Nothing is going well for him and he seems to have transferred his gray tone from Barça to the rojiblanco team … The Frenchman is obliged to react, because right now Correa, on points, is earning those stripes by far.

Griezmann has eight games this season, three with Barça and five with the rojiblanca. A total of 568 minutes, almost nine and a half hours, in which he has not scored a goal or given an assist. What’s more, he hasn’t even gotten a shot on goal. He has tried 10 times, but they either went out or crashed into opponents. The smell that made him be in all of his previous stage has disappeared.

In Vitoria its figures plummeted to absolute nothing. Despite the fact that it was his first full game as a rojiblanco, it was totally inconsequential: zero shots of any kind, zero dribbles, 73% success in the pass, of which only one was within the Alavés area … It is not that things did not work out, is that he hardly even tried. Griezmann’s sad tone clashes with Correa’s electricity, with whom things always happen, whether he is more or less correct. The Argentinian has also been affected by the arrival of the Frenchman, because either he displaces him on the field or on the bench.

The comebacks without Griezmann

That everything goes wrong for Griezmann is also seen in how the Atleti scorers have been given with him and without him. With the 8 in the field, Atlético has not scored a single goal and has conceded three. Without the French, the balance is 4-0 in favor. Let’s go to the specific cases: Griezmann was a starter in the visits to Espanyol and Getafe, when he was substituted the game was 1-0 and in the end Atleti won both games 1-2. Undoubtedly, the appointments against Milan and Barça seem like two good opportunities to reverse the situation and scare away any kind of curse …
