Antoine Griezmann likes to play with Lionel Messi in Barcelona while the couple tries to form an intuition in an attack.
The Frenchman took the time to settle in the Nou Camp after his transfer from Atletico Madrid last summer, but now forms an effective partnership with Messi.
The couple fell on the pair to deliver the Barcelona goals with fellow attackers Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele who are currently sidelined due to an injury.

Barcelona won 2-1 on Saturday against Getafe in third place, with Griezmann on goal, to go back on points with LaLiga leaders Real Madrid, who play Celta Vigo on Sunday evening.
“I’ve been here for seven months and we’re still learning each other’s movements,” Griezmann said Marca.
‘It’s getting better and we enjoy playing together.
“I like to play with Messi and we have success.”

Griezmann’s goal against Getafe brought him to eight this season, while Messi scored 19 times.
Barcelona, attracted to Napoli in the last 16 of the Champions League, would be able to sign an emergency attacker in the midst of their injury crisis if LaLiga allows them.
Getafe striker Angel Rodriguez, Loren Moron of Real Betis and Alaves ahead of Lucas Perez are possible options.
