Despite their relative poor form in the competition, Atletico Madrid’s hope of advancing into the knock out stages of Champions League remain alive thanks to their 2-0 win over AS Roma on Wednesday.
One of the main actors for Atletico’s victory on that game was Antoine Griezmann who scored one and assisted the second goal for his team to give them that massive three points at home.
Griezmann’s opener itself was a thing of beauty, as the French international scored with can be considered as half bicycle kick inside Roma’s penalty area, showcasing his technique along with awareness.
Finding himself free inside the box, Griezmann just made that instinctive move without any hesitation as it was executed perfectly, not giving the opponent’s goal keeper any chance of recovering that shot.
That goal certainly the one that eventually sparked the home team’s beliefs as they went on to scored their second, which was netted by Kevin Gameiro, but not without the French international influence.
Griezmann continue to showcase that he is more than just a goal scorer as his ability to create opportunities is also at top notch level.
Although it’s going to be a difficult task, but at least the inspiration that the attacker provided in that midweek match can give his team that glimmer hope to continue their participation in Champions League this season.
