It was September 27th and Antoine Griezmann scored only his third goal of the season to put Atletico Madrid 1-0 up against Chelsea. From that point forward the Frenchman hadn’t scored until the point when he finished his dry season with a delight today around evening time.

Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring in that game against the Blues at the Wanda Metropolitano from the penalty spot but second-half goals from Alvaro Morata and MichyBatshuayi gave the Blues a 2-1 win.

Antoine Griezmann breaks his goal scoring drought

From that point forward Griezmann has gone eight games without sacking for his club. In that run of games have been troublesome fixtures against Real Madrid and Barcelona and less demanding ones against Qarabag and Leganes.

The Champions League is the place Atleti have for the most part missed their primary strikers’ goals and they were struggling to qualify. On Wednesday night, they needed to beat Roma to have a possibility of going through.

Griezmann picked a decent time to end his dry season then as he scored halfway during that time half with an exquisite scissor-kick inside the box to put his side 1-0 up against the Italians.

Kevin Gameiro later included the second goal of the game for the side from the Spanish capital to keep alive their desires of fitting the bill for the knockout stages toward the start of the next year.

Chelsea’s prevail upon Qarabag prior in the day affirmed the Premier League champions as the best of the group and Atleti should beat them at Stamford Bridge in the last game to have a shot of qualifying.
