Griezmann Bags Four To Put Atleti Four Points Behind Barca

Spanish LaLiga Report: Atletico Madrid v Leganes 28 February 2018

Spanish LaLiga 

Result: Atletico Madrid 4-0 Leganes

Date: 28 February 2018

Venue: Wanda Metropolitano

After netting a hat-trick over the weekend, Antoine Griezmann bagged four goals to lead Atletico Madrid to a 4-0 win over Leganes at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The victory sees Los Rojiblancos move four points behind leaders FC Barcelona, who travel to Las Palmas on Thursday.

After a quiet start to the half, Atletico went agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock in the 17th minute as Griezmann rattled the woodwork with a fine free-kick.

The Frenchman was not to be denied in the 26th minute as he latched onto a pass from Koke before calmly slotting past goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar.

The lead was doubled 10 minutes later when Griezmann grabbed his brace with a fine curling effort into the top corner.

The visitors, meanwhile, struggled to pose a threat to the Atletico defence and went into the break trailing by two goals.

Ten minutes into the second half, Griezmann completed his hat-trick for a second game in a row with a well-placed header from Felipe Luis' cross.

Griezmann netted his and Atletico's fourth in the 69th minute with a clinical first-time volley into the bottom corner after combining well with Diego Costa.

With 15 minutes remaining, Diego Simeone opted to withdraw Griezmann, who received for standing ovation from the home support.

There would be no more clear-cut chances in the final stages of the second stanza as the host ran out convincing 4-0 winners on the night.
