Antoine Griezmann Outwits Torres

It was for the 11th season that Messi hit the number of goals to be 30. It was not a great day for them in the field and he has admitted that the team had not played up to their mark, Pique said.

Griezmann helped scored the winning goal during the second half in the victory whose scoreline read 1 – 0. This is a boost for the team in time with the encounter next week against the team consisting of the legendary Ronaldo.

He is now ahead of Torres who is playing for a club from Japan and this is proving to be a big boost for the Madrid team after they had suffered successive defeats which also included going down on Real Madrid with a scoreline of 3 – 1. In the 11 outings that he had had, the player has struck for an amazing 10 times.

“The coach has said that Griezmann is a player who is extraordinary in what he does and that“, he will be an important factor for how the team fares out in this competition and all other upcoming competition. The late Luis Aragones, Atletico's record goalscorer with 172, was the “coach of the Spain “team when they won the Euro 2008.

It will be interesting to see how the team fares out and how much of the actual impact can be made for the matches. The team from Madrid is a couple of points behind Athletico and they are in the third place. They have a great chance to move to second place. It will be interesting to see how the player maintains his form for the rest of the season and if he will be able to contribute to his team the same way he has been doing it right now.
