Author of his 12th goal in La Liga this season, this Saturday, against Rayo Vallecano (0-1), Antoine Griezmann has entered a little more in the history of Atletico Madrid ... This is a recurring scenario: Atlético Madrid wins on the lowest score thanks to a Griezmann goal. Almost inevitably, the story was repeated this Saturday. In trouble against the neighbor of Rayo Vallecano, Colchoneros have been able to count on the efficiency of their French striker to win 1-0, avoiding a third game without a win, before their shock against Juventus Turin in the round of 16 of the Champions League next Wednesday.
This achievement certainly has a special flavor for the native Mâcon, who has reached the bar of 130 goals in the red and white jersey. What supplant "the child" of the club, Fernando Torres and his 129 goals. Arrived in the Spanish capital in 2014 from the Real Sociedad, "Grizi", the end of the contract in June 2023, can still aim higher ... Now ranked fifth best scorer in Matelassiers history, the international tricolor n ' is more than five lengths from José Eulogio Garate (135). Unless disaster, he should overtake the former Spanish striker before the end of the season. Then, in front of him, Paco Campos (144), Adrian Escudero (169) and finally Luis Aragones (172), the top scorer in the history of the Madrid club, will rise again. And inevitably, from the height of his 27 years, the French has this record in the viewfinder!
𝔾𝕣𝕒𝕔𝕚𝕒𝕤 𝕒 𝕥𝕠𝕕𝕠𝕤!❤️ 800 followers..maybe for many of you that is just a number, but for me its incredible and I never believed to reach this goal! 🙏🏼 I'm thankful to get this support, that’s not a naturalness.
Thank you all so much.
Antoine Griezmann se convirtió este sábado en el gran protagonista del triunfo del Atlético de Madrid sobre el Rayo Vallecano, ya que marcó el gol del triunfo de su equipo en Vallecas, un tanto que también le sirve para entrar en la historia del club.
Con el gol ante el Rayo, el francés llega hasta los 129 goles con el Atlético y se ha convertido en el quinto máximo goleador histórico de la entidad superando los registros de Fernando Torres, que se marchó el verano pasado con 128 en sus registros.
De hecho, Griezmann está a sólo 5 dianas de los 134 de Gárate para convertirse en el máximo goleador extranjero de la historia del Atlético en todas las competiciones. A nivel general, el ex de la Real Sociedad aún tiene por delante al citado Gárate, a Campos con 146, a Escudero con 169 y a Luis Aragonés con 172 tantos, al que sí ha igualado como máximo goleador en Europa con 27 dianas.
