Antoine Griezmann's Stats In La Liga This Season Are Shocking, He's A Shadow Of Himself

Antoine Griezmann is yet to have a single shot on target in La Liga this season as the Frenchman's struggles continue.

After an underwhelming time at Barcelona, Griezmann has returned to Atletico Madrid in a loan deal that will become permanent if he plays in 50% of fixtures.


But the 30-year-old's second stint with Atleti has started off horrendously. In seven La Liga games this term, including three for Barca, Griezmann hasn't had a shot on goal.

His poor output has seen him fail to register an assist or create a big chance.

Atleti have played 315 minutes with him in the side, during which they haven't scored - compared to nine goals notched without him on the pitch.

On Saturday Atletico lost 1-0 to 19th-placed Alaves - their first defeat of the new campaign - and Griezmann was once again completely ineffective.

He partnered Luis Suarez up top but continues to look like a completely different player to the one that ripped up La Liga under Diego Simeone back in the day.

The former Real Sociedad man is experiencing quite the fall from grace ever since his £108 million move to Barca and Atleti fans still haven't forgiven him for agreeing terms when the 2018/19 season was still ongoing.

In his first game back at the Wanda Metropolitano as an Atleti player, Griezmann was booed by his own fans before the game when his name was read out.

When he replaced Joao Felix in the game against Porto, he was jeered for a second time.

Eduardo Fernandez, president of the Atletico de Madrid International Penas Union, believes Griezmann has a lot to do to get fans on his side again.

"We're all still hurt by what he did," he told L'Equipe.

"Time is going to see our pain heal. He will have to regain our trust and our love.

"It is up to him to be forgiven and to redeem himself. How? 'Or' What? By sweating the jersey and scoring. When he sets important goals, little by little things will get back to normal. Because he can once again become the great player he was, I am convinced.
