Griezmann & Torres Lead Atletco To Five-Goal Rout

Spanish La Liga 

Result: Atletico Madrid 5-0 Sporting Gijon 

Date: 17 September 2016

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres both netted braces as Atletico Madrid thumped Sporting Gijon 5-0 at the Vicente Calderon.

Atletico Madrid settled very early on with Griezmann opening the scoring in the second minute of the game with an effort from distance.

Gameiro then registered his name on the score-sheet with a right-footed shot from the right side of the box to set Atletico in good stead early on.

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.
