Griezmann, Braithwaite and Dembélé are all hitting fine form, and in Budapest all three got on the scoresheet
Against Ferencváros, and for the second game in a row, all three men that Ronald Koeman chose to play in attack have found the net. Griezmann, Braithwaite and Dembélé form a great team up front, and the goals they’re scoring are testimony of that.
Griezmann: goals in 4 or 5 last games
Antoine Griezmann opened the account in Budapest with a back-heel off a Jordi Alba assist. That was his fourth goal in five games, and the first time he’s scored in three consecutive games for Barça.
Braithwaite: 4 goals in 3 games
Martin Braithwaite is also enjoying fine form, scoring four goals in the last three games, tonight’s coming at the end of 33 consecutive passes. A Champions League record.
It was also the Dane who was on the end of the tackle that led to penalty, and subsequently the third goal.
Dembélé: second highest scoring season
Ousmane Dembélé didn’t miss out on the party either. After setting up the second goal he converted the penalty to make it three. His four goals have already equalled the four he scored in his injury-plagued first year. In his second year he scored 14, but he’s well on course to match that tally this term.
