Antoine Griezmann, the prince who could be king

Antoine Griezmann, the prince who could be king

The Frenchman missed a penalty and needed a tap in to get on the scoresheet

Antoine Griezmann reached 200 goals in the top flight during Barca's 5-2 win over Real Betis, celebrating his goal with a mixture of rage and joy. Koeman let him start in his favoured second striker position with Leo Messi rested, but the Frenchman suffered. 

He played quite well in the first half but had three shots off target which he might have scored and then missed a penalty, in which Ansu Fati damaged his knee.

Leo came on and helped set up Griezmann for a tap in with a special dummy. Griezmann was active in the game and popped up in different areas, but did not add to his tally to kill the game.

Griezmann has scored 53 with Real Sociedad, 130 with Atletico and 17 with Barca in La Liga. A number that should be greater from 57 games, especially given his past.
