When Griezmann scored his goal in the 93rd minute, he didn’t celebrate as he thought he was off-side. However, he realised later that he had won the match for his team.
Credit must also be given to Rostov as they defended well. They had a five-man defence that frustrated Ateletico for the larger part of the match. As the goals were not coming, the team was in real danger. However, Griezmann showed his class as he managed to score 2 goals.
With this performance, Griezmann has entered the elite club of top 10 European scorers for Atletico Madrid.
