Watch: Antoine Griezmann somehow manages to miss open goal for Barca


It’s fair to say Antoine Griezmann’s big-money move from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona hasn’t gone as well as expected.

In fact, we’d go as far as saying he’s starting to feel about as sorry for him as we do another beleaguered former Atletico Madrid striker, Alvaro Morata.

Morata recently had his status as football’s premier sadlad when he had a hat-trick of goals ruled out for offside while playing for Juventus.

Griezmann is in a similar boat at Barcelona, where he has failed to recapture the form that made him such a standout star at Atleti.

The forward has scored just once for Barca this term but was presented with a glorious chance to double his tally for the season in their Champions League clash with Dynamo Kyiv.

Somehow Griezmann managed to flash his shot wide of the post with the goalkeeper stranded. He looked sad, we felt sad, it was all very sad.
