Keeper Jan Oblak was forced into a number of saves that helped keep Atleti in the game, while a remarkable clearance from Stefan Savic following a Cristiano Ronaldo strike kept the scores level at the break, only for Portuguese worldwide Pepe to put the home side ahead with the opener just after the restart.

And Atletico boss Diego Simeone hailed Griezmann's transformation into the complete all-round player.
