Griezmann has not missed more than one game due to injury for eight years
That Griezmann falls injured is somewhat unusual. The Frenchman has had very few casualties throughout his career due to discomfort. However, already on the day of the game against Real Valladolid, it was intuited that something was wrong. Antoine asked for the change in the break, citing some discomfort that did not go away. The last time the Frenchman missed a game due to injury was in December 2017, when he was in the ranks of Atletico Madrid. On that occasion, a single encounter was lost due to a blow. In fact, that was the only commitment that the French did not dispute with the mattresses for an illness. All of his other losses were due to a technical decision by Cholo Simeone.
His record of casualties with Real Sociedad is also striking. The last time Griezmann missed more than one engagement due to injury, something that will happen again this week was when he was in the ranks of the San Sebastian team. It was in November 2012 and on that occasion he was left without playing three shocks due to muscle problems.
