No supernatural occurrence objective came, and the 2-2 draw deserted Barcelona one point Madrid, which can open an important lead with five games remaining if it beats Getafe on Thursday. Madrid additionally holds the sudden death round on the off chance that they finish even on focuses.

“The facts confirm that it’s not typical for a titleholder to be welcomed on so late in the match. It very well may be hard for a player of his group, however, the conditions called for it,” Setién said.

You generally trust that a player of his ability can dominate the match for you with individual activity. Be that as it may, I comprehend it is hard for him.

“Tomorrow I will address him about it. I won’t apologize, yet I comprehend he may feel terrible about it. I feel terrible about it since he is an incredible player and individual.”

In his five seasons at Atletico, he scored 133 objectives and helped the group win a Europa League title, a Spanish Super Cup, and a UEFA Super Cup.

The thought was that Griezmann could at long last fill the void left by Neymar in advance when he rushed for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.

That cost was viewed as a decent arrangement in the pre-pandemic market. Presently, Barcelona is confronted with being burdened with a subsequent significant marking in succession that has tumbled.

Griezmann began the season all around ok, scoring eight objectives before the winter break. In any case, his numbers began to diminish and he presently can’t seem to score since the resumption of the association following a three-month stoppage brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

As his objective creation has diminished, so have his minutes. He has just begun two of five matches since the restart of the opposition, and he isn’t being relied on for games against significant opponents, playing just 11 minutes in a 0-0 draw against Sevilla.

Setién has rather picked Puig, 17-year-old Ansu Fati, and Martin Braithwaite over Griezmann. Barcelona now needs Madrid to slip up and improve its exhibitions to win a third consecutive class title.
