Granada 0-4 Barcelona Scored twice against Granada
Antoine Griezmann sounded relieved to be scoring goals again for Barcelona. The Frenchman netted for the first time since December 2 during Saturday’s win over Granada.
Having gone over a month without finding the net, the former Atletico Madrid forward struck Barcelona‘s first and fourth goals at Nuevo Los Carmenes.
“The first one wasn’t offside and that’s why I went for it,” Griezmann explained afterwards. “When Ousmane [Dembele] gives me the ball, I try to shoot and luckily it went in.
“They weren’t going in before but now it seems things are going well.”
Ronald Koeman‘s side have now picked up wins in three of their last four matches in LaLiga Santander.
“We needed the three points, to win and keep up this run,” Griezmann added. “I’m very happy for the work of the team. We have to keep getting all three points.
“We know [Granada] is a tough place to come and a difficult team [to face]. We started very well. We have to keep going like this.
“We have to pick up three points in every match, then we’ll see what happens. We have to keep up the good impression [we made] against Athletic.”
Unlike against Athletic Club on Wednesday, Barcelona kept a clean sheet against Granada, with Samuel Umtiti an emergency replacement for Ronald Araujo in the starting line-up.
“Umtiti wasn’t ready because he came in just after the warm-up,” Griezmann continued. “We worked very well.”
