Griezmann playing remaining La Liga games in doubt as he gets injured

The France attacker, Antoine Griezmann is most likely going to miss the rest of the season after Barcelona said on Sunday that he had a thigh injury.

Griezmann  who is a world Cup winner went off at half-time of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Valladolid after apparently asking to be subbed.

Barcelona coach Quique Setien, while speaking on Saturday, said “He came off because he had a problem, It was him who asked for the change.”

“Tests this morning have shown that first-team player Antoine Griezmann has a muscle injury in the quadriceps of his right leg,” Barca said on their website.

“He is therefore not available for selection at the present time,” a statement said of the 29-year-old who has scored 15 goals in 46 games this season.

It would appear Griezmann will miss Barcelona’s final La Liga matches with Real Madrid needing five points from their final three games to win the title.

Barca also faces a Champions League last-16 second leg on August 8 after drawing 1-1 at Napoli before the lockdown.
