The correlation of forces before the match Bilbao vs Barcelona
Without Lionel Messi, the attacking player who was considered mediocre by Barclona, Martin Braithwaite, suddenly played like a god. As noted from today’s football match, the Danish striker scored 2 goals and contributed 1 assist to help Barcelona beat Sociedad 4-2 in the opening match of La Liga 2021/22.
During the visit to Bilbao’s lair in the second round of La Liga 2021/22, Martin Braithwaite is therefore expected to extend the sublimation circuit. But there is a confusing detail, which is that according to the house tonight, Martin Braithwaite has never had a goal or an assist after 7 encounters with Bilbao. Whether it was under a Barcelona shirt or when Braithwaite was still playing for Leganes.
Of course, talking much about Martin Braithwaite is not because Barcelona has no one to trust. In contrast, coach Ronald Koeman now has too many options to trust, instead of “auto” having to put all expectations on Messi’s feet as in the past. Antoine Griezmann is such an option.
According to the statistics of Spanish football, Antoine Griezmann has scored 12 goals and provided 6 assists in 25 appearances against Bilbao in all competitions. In La Liga alone, the French striker has 9 goals and 6 assists in 14 matches against Bilbao. No striker in Barcelona at the moment has conceded more goals against Bilbao than Griezmann.
