Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann proved statement as he helped his side claim the Europa League title against Marseille in Lyon.
Griezmann opened scoring in the 21st minute with a ruthless finish past the opposition’s goal keeper.
The 27-year-old forward struck home when Steve Mandanda played an awkward ball to the holding midfielder André Zambo Anguissa who miscontrolled. Certainly, it was a perfect opportunity to slot home.
Griezmann, in the second half scored his second goal easily because of a huge hole in the Marseille midfield. Koke romps into it, and slips a ball down the inside-right for Griezmann. The striker buzzes into the box, draws Mandanda, and half-dinks, half-strokes the ball past the keeper and into the bottom left.
Minutes before the full time, Captain Gabi drilled in the third goal to seal the game in 3-0 victory of Atletico.
Man of the match Griezmann, took his goal tally for the club this season to 32.
“I am very happy,” said Griezmann.
“I have been working to experience such a moment for many years. I left home when I was 14 for that. We will celebrate. My family is here.
“I don’t know how to describe the finish, perhaps cold-blooded.”
