BARCELONA: Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann is under pressure to deliver in his home bow against Real Betis on Sunday with the La Liga champions facing an injury crisis in attack as they look to respond to last week's surprise defeat at Athletic Bilbao.

With the Catalans shorn of three of their top forwards, all eyes will be on Griezmann in his first appearance at the Camp Nou since his 120-million-euro move from Atletico Madrid, and not least because Barca need a win to kickstart their season. The France forward was largely ineffective against Athletic as he struggled to influence play from wide positions and then saw even less of the ball as he moved into the centre forward's role after Suarez had been forced off injured.
