Barcelona on Sunday said that Griezmann received a muscle injury in the four-headed part of his right leg, and although they did not say how long he will be out for, it is clear that he will miss the two final games of the season in LaLiga.
Antoine has received a quadriceps injury
Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona’s star signing for this season, will not be able to play in the week to decide the destination of the LaLiga title. Real Madrid are clear favorites to become champions. But the Catalans are not going to give up until it mathematically ends. Barcelona on Sunday said that Griezmann received a muscle injury in the quadriceps of his right leg, and although they did not say how long he will be out for, it is clear that he will miss the two final games of the season in LaLiga. The goal now will be for the Frenchman to return healthy to the Champions League’s resumption, with Barcelona on August 8 at Camp Nou to play a return match with their last 16 draws against Napoli.
It’s strange to see Griezmann on the injury table, with the forward rarely picking out knocks. However, during the victory of Barcelona over Real Valladolid 1: 0 on Saturday, he felt some discomfort and asked to play half-time. The last time Griezmann missed the match because of an injury back in December 2017, when he played for Atlético Madrid. On this occasion, he dropped out on one game due to a knock. That was the only time he had not played for Los Rojiblancos because of an ailment. All other times, Griezmann did not distinguish himself from Atlético because Diego Simeone decided not to play the 29-year-old. Even looking further back, the last time Griezmann missed more than one game due to injury when he was back in 2012 when he was at Real Sociedad. On that occasion, he missed three matches due to muscle problems.
