Watch: Antoine Griezmann converts sublime free-kick for Atleti


Antoine Griezmann was once again among the goals as Atletico Madrid beat Sevilla 3-1 at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday.

Atletico are now only two points behind Sevilla in the race for automatic qualification to next season’s Champions League.

Diego Godin set Atleti on their way to victory with a first-half header before Griezmann scored his third free-kick of the season in La Liga with an excellent effort from 20 yards.

Spain midfielder Koke made it 3-0 in the 77th minute before substitute Joaquin Correa bagged a consolation for the visitors.

Another positive for Diego Simeone’s men was the return of Fernando Torres from the sickening head injury the striker suffered against Deportivo two weeks ago.

And captain Gabi now wants his side to overtake Sevilla in the table.

“These were three vital points, and three points that change our objectives for the season,” he said.

“We’re secure in fourth place now and we’re going to go for third.

“It was a very complete game from the whole team, we’re happy with the result.”
