Video: Antoine Griezmann’s Hilarious Reaction to Saul Niguez’s Opening Goal

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann was literally blown away by Saul Niguez’s opening goal against Bayer Leverkusen tonight.

Diego Simeone’s side face elite opposition in the German side, who didn’t lose a single game in the group stages and are currently in 8th place in the Bundesliga table.

However, nobody seems to have informed Niguez of that fact, as the 22-year-old pulled off an outstanding finish that left goalkeeper Bernd Leno with no chance.

And what made the finish even better, was the fact that Niguez’s goal was so good it completely obliterated his teammate Griezmann in the process.

Keep a close eye on Leverkusen’s right flank as Niguez’s strike hits the net:

 

Luckily, Griezmann wasn’t down for too long and he soon regained his composure and got his own name on the scoresheet as Atletico took a 2-0 lead.

With reports linking Griezmann with a move to Manchester United this summer, is this something you can imagine the France international pulling at Old Trafford?
