Antoine Griezmann has scored just one goal in 2022 and is on his longest streak without scoring for 12 years.
After two struggling years at FC Barcelona where he did not pass the long-awaited course, Antoine Griezmann returned home toAtletico Madridhoping to find the efficiency that made him the key player of the Colchoneros for 5 years, during which he scored 133 goals.

It has indeed been 16 consecutive matches (14 with Atlético, 2 with the France team) that he has not found the net, and over this period, he has delivered only two assists. In La Liga, you have to go back to November 28 to find traces of a goal from Madrid’s number 8.
With only 3 games left to play, Griezmann could end his first season with less than 10 club goals since the 2011-2012 season, when he played for Real Sociedad.
Despite everything, his coach Diego Simeone does not lose hope and is convinced that his striker will quickly regain his confidence, especially after his good start against Real Madrid on Sunday (1-0). “He’s closer, he’s had several goal situations and that brings him closer to what he’s always done, which is to score. These are stages, we are probably not used to seeing Griezmann score so few goals. (…) But I trust him, I have no doubt that he will score again, he is a very important player for us”did he declare.
