Griezmann for the first time during his time at Barca scored for the third consecutive game with the opener in the

Champions League

game against



"It is always a matter of trust of a player. As I said many times, Antoine has always worked hard to improve his game and effectiveness for the team," Koeman said.

"Now the goals come in and he is convinced because he has quality. I think this is important for any player.

"I hope he can continue with this effectiveness he's having lately.”

After Griezmann’s opener,

Ousmane Dembele

provided an assist for Martin Braithwaite and then he got himself on the scoresheet.

No player had more shots than Dember’s five and Koeman said it is very difficult for him to select forwards when ‘people like Dembele are playing at this level.’

"Dembele is a great player. He has a lot of quality, one on one, he is very fast, he is effective and manages both legs," he said.

"The most important thing is he is physically very well. He is working well.

"We know there are different players at the front and it is difficult for the manager to decide when people like Dembele are playing at this level."
