Griezmann went into tonight’s game lacking the sort of dazzling form which he showed in abundance in the previous abundance.
In fact, before this evening’s tie kicked off in the Spanish capital, the France international had scored just seven goals in his last 27, for both club and country.
However, it appears to be a matter of quality not quantity for the 26-year-old as he acrobatically got on the end of Ángel Correa’s looping cross here:

Griezmann’s goal return has undoubtedly affected Atletico’s form this season, with Diego Simeone’s side facing down the barrell of Europa League football as they sit third behind Chelsea and Roma in Group C.
Needless to say, the Atletico fans will be hoping this stunning strike can give Griezmann the confidence to recapture the form of last season!
