Before Sporting Gijon can barely settle Griezmann grabbed his second goal of the match in the 31st minute to make it 3-0 with another effort from outside the box.
In the second half Atletico took off from where they left with Griezmann a constant threat.
Griezmann was finally substituted and his replacement Fernando Torres piled more misery onto Sporting Gijon.
Torres made it 4-0 in the 72nd minute. The Spanish striker found himself in a good position in the box and fired home a right footed shot from close range.
Fernando Torres made it 5-0 in the dying seconds from the penalty spot after Nico Gaitan was brought down in the area.
