Griezmann looks for his first big night

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 2,103

This Sunday, Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona are fighting for the Spanish Super Cup. It will be a very special day for Antoine Griezmann because it is his first final as a Barca player. He will almost certainly be in Ronald Koeman's starting XI and he will try and give Barca fans something to celebrate.

Griezmann arrived at the Camp Nou in July 2019. The Frenchman decided to leave Atletico Madrid and try his luck at Barcelona. That was almost two years ago. 

But, up to now, Griezmann had not had the chance to play in a final for the Catalans. He will do so this Sunday against Athletic in the Spanish Super Cup. 

And how has Griezmann done against Athletic Bilbao in his sporting career? Throughout his professional career (Real Sociedad, Atletico Madrid and Barca), the forward has scored eight goals against Athletic Bilbao.

However, in recent times, he has had difficulty against the Basques. His last goal against Athletic Bilbao was on 22nd January 2017, almost three years ago. It was in a game between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid on matchday 19 in La Liga. The fixture ended 2-2. 

He scored a couple more goals aganst them in May and September 2017, but both were disallowed. Since then, he has not hit the target. 

So far this term, Griezmann has found the back of the net on seven occasions. His aim is to keep on adding goals to his personal tally. The Frenchman wants silverware at Barca and his first opportunity is in the Super Cup.
