Griezmann looking to recover European form

Antoine Griezmann hasn’t had an easy start to life at Barcelona.

The team’s overall poor showing particularly away from home hasn’t helped and has scored a respectable three goals in eight games but the Frenchman appears tame in comparison to the standout leader he was at Atletico Madrid.

While his return to form is thought to be just a matter of time, there would be no better stage to announce himself to Barcelona than the Champions League.

It is precisely in Europe where, despite being a renowned goal machine for Atletico, he has suffered some recent struggles.

His last goal on the continent came in the group stages of last year’s edition, unable to help Atletico in the knockout stage against Juventus.

Combined with the blank at Borussia Dortmund for Barcelona, the 28-year-old is now four games without a goal in Europe.

When Barcelona host Inter on Wednesday at the Camp Nou, Griezmann will be looking to end that drought and, more importantly, kick start his Blaugrana career.
