Griezmann task Barca to improve set-piece defending after Bilbao disappointment

Barca conceded twice off of set-pieces against Bilbao, although one goal was ruled out for offside.

Griezmann believes that the team needs to work on their defending during the week.

Antoine says that the Catalans didn't defend well and didn't communicate enough.

"We made mistakes at set-pieces and we'll have to work on it well during the week," Antoine Griezmann said after the Athletic Bilbao loss, as quoted by Marca.

"We didn't defend well, we didn't talk... When the ball goes out, someone has to shout."

Barcelona were 2-1 up against Bilbao before conceding off of a set-piece in the 90th minute, which took the game to extra time. The Basques then scored an early goal to seal the win.

Barca conceded another goal from a free-kick during earlier in the second half but it was ruled out for offside.
