Pros: excellent team move, difficult finish, scored like 20 seconds into the dang game.
Cons: finish was not as rocket-y as it could have been.
What a goal from Griezmann! pic.twitter.com/DdlWSPSEX4— Ryan. (@Vintage_Utd) January 23, 2018
Pros: nonchalantly scored off a slightly broken play, my goodness, that finish.
Cons: none really if we're being honest here.
Verdict: Griezmann wins the battle but loses the war as his volley is named the greater of the two volleys but Atletico Madrid lose to Sevilla 3-1 in the game and 5-2 on aggregate. Cool goal though!
