Gabi urges Antoine Griezmann to honour Atletico Madrid shirt

Antoine Griezmann

It has now been seven games in all competitions since the Wanda Metropolitano last saw their side concede and the victory maintains the seven point lead over third place rivals Real Madrid.

Barca, who lead the league standings, beat Malaga 2-0 at La Rosaleda thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho in a game which did not feature Lionel Messi after he welcomed the arrival of his third child on Friday evening.

Atletico's only recent setback was a 1-0 loss at Barcelona in the previous round. The effort left coach Diego Simeone exuberantly punching the air in celebration. I want to reach the final five rounds with chances. "If that happens, we will talk of something else".

It's of no surprise Atletico are keen for that partnership to continue to flourish, though Costa's presence would also make Griezmann's departure somewhat more palatable as they'd still have a reliable goalscorer in the side.

France forward Antoine Griezmann broke the deadlock a minute before halftime to move on to 16 league goals for the season and draw level with Celta forward Iago Aspas as the fourth top scorer in the top flight.

Griezmann's goal on Sunday came a minute before the break as he controlled the ball at the back post following a corner and showed some brilliant footwork to take a Celta defender out of the game before firing into the far corner.

If Nepal beats PNG and Hong Kong beats Netherlands, Nepal and Hong Kong play for 7th place and the prized ODI status. Man of the Match Roshit Kumar Paudel finshied the match in style with a crunching drive for four runs on 40.4 overs.

Vitolo doubled Atletico's advantage in the 56th minute with a deft chip over Marco Ruben before Angel Correa rounded off the scoring soon after with a powerful strike from the edge of the box.

"Today he is with us, he plays fantastically well and there is very good togetherness with the fans". "Tomorrow is another day".

Los Colchoneros bounced back from last weekend's disappointing 1-0 defeat to Barcelona to claim a comfortable three points and cut the gap on La Liga's leaders to eight points.

Sevilla stayed fifth but 11 points behind Valencia in the fight for a Champions League spot next season.

Griezmann and co.travel to Russian Federation on Thursday to face Lokomotiv Moscow in the Europa League, where they will head into the game with a 3-0 first leg lead.
