Antoine Griezmann gives Atletico Madrid 1-0 win against Athletic Bilbao | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Antoine Griezmann‘s late goal claimed a 1-0 win for Atletico Madrid against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. With this win, Atletico strengthened their grip on fourth place in La Liga. Atletico have 41 points from 22 games, two behind third-placed Real Sociedad and four above Real Betis in fifth.
Atletico were the better side for large parts of the game but were left to rue a flurry of missed chances until Griezmann broke the deadlock in the 73rd minute.
The forward slotted home a low shot inside the box to cap a fine individual effort that started from a combination with substitute Memphis Depay who set his team mate free with a back-heel before the Frenchman sprinted between two defenders.
Barcelona, who visit lowly Cadiz in the late game, are top on 56 points ahead of Real Madrid with 51.
