Griezmann helps Atletico ‘take revenge’ on Real

Before kickoff, Griezmann was honored as the highest scorer in Atletico Madrid history.

In the match, Griezmann continued to shine with a goal to increase the score to 3-2 and extend Atletico’s scoring record.

Griezmann celebrates after scoring a goal against Real Madrid, helping Atletico Madrid take a 3-2 lead in the 1/8 round of the King’s Cup.

About nine minutes later, Atletico extinguished the city club’s hope of a comeback when Memphis Depay dropped the ball so Rodrigo Riquelme could escape and place it diagonally to set the score 4-2.

This result helps Atletico `avoid` their 3-5 defeat to Real in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup more than a week ago.

Almost the same scenario took place at Metropolitano Stadium last night, when the two teams continued to draw after two main periods.

Jude Bellingham dribbles the ball in the circle between Atletico Madrid players in the 1/8 round of the King’s Cup.

Real started better with Jude Bellingham’s shot rebounding off the bar in the 11th minute and Vinicius and Rodrygo’s chances were blocked by goalkeeper Jan Oblak, but Atletico was the club that took the lead.

The second half followed a similar scenario, when Atletico regained the lead in the 57th minute. Eduardo Camavinga made a mistake and brought the ball into the penalty area, then Andriy Lunin stepped out and pushed the ball back, hitting Rudiger.

The royal team continued to show their bravery with an equalizer in the 82nd minute, when Bellingham crossed the ball and hit the Atletico defender, changing direction so substitute striker Joselu headed into the empty net.
