The Blaugrana coach decided to play with Messi and Suárez up front to face a giant like Bayern Munich.
Antoine Griezmann It is not from the game in Barcelona versus Bayern Munich, in the rooms of the Champions League in Lisbon. The French is not an option for Quique Setién in a momentous match this season.
Chilean Arturo Vidal is the starter to reinforce the Blaugrana midfield, in a decision that leaves the duo of Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez in attack. The intention lies in being able to stop a Bavarian team that is in a great footballing moment, with Robert Lewandowski as the main figure and scorer.
Griezmann starts on the substitute bench for the fifth time in the Setién management. He did it three times in LaLiga, in draws against Sevilla, Atlético de Madrid and Celta, in addition to the defeat with Athletic in the Copa del Rey.
The French striker always had the opportunity to join the complement, although the match against the mattress, his former team, was significant: he entered at minute 90, under the gaze of an astonished Diego Simeone who lost his figure last season in a million dollar transaction.
