Griezmann scores as Atletico defeat Deportivo

Prolific French striker Antoine Griezmann was on target again as Atletico Madrid defeated their La Liga counterpart Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday. Griezmann equalled Uruguay international Luis Suarez’s total goal tally in Spain after he got his fifth of the season from close range. It wasn’t all good news for the Madrid-based team as the Diego Simeone-led side suffered an injury blow ahead of the much awaited clash against German champions Bayern Munich.

Ahead of the game, Simeone rested Stefan Savic and Saul Niguez, leaving Gabi and Kevin Gameiro to start from the bench. The only possible rationale was that he wanted rest after their 1-1 draw against the defending La Liga champion Barcelona the same week. Atletico got off slowly, but got a clear advantage when Deportivo’s Faycal Fajr was sent off in the first half. Fajr, already on a yellow card, charged carelessly at Nicolas Gaitan to earn a second yellow.
