Griezmann and Morata score braces in UCL win

Antoine Griezmann was the star of the show as Atletico Madrid secured a resounding 6-0 victory over Celtic in their UEFA Champions League clash at the Civitas Metropolitano Stadium. The French forward’s impressive performance not only saw him score a goal but also set up two others, leaving Celtic on the brink of a European exit.

Griezmann wasted no time in making an impact, finding the back of the net just six minutes into the game with a deflected shot from outside the box. The early goal set the tone for Atletico’s dominance throughout the match.

Celtic’s task became even more challenging when Daizen Maeda was controversially shown a red card, reducing them to 10 men. With the odds stacked against them, Celtic struggled to contain Atletico’s attacking prowess.

Griezmann continued to shine, providing a delightful cross that led to Atleti’s second goal, which was expertly finished by Alvaro Morata. The Frenchman then showcased his own skills with an acrobatic volley to extend Atletico’s lead to 3-0.

As if that wasn’t enough, substitute Samuel Lino made an immediate impact, scoring a stunning goal to make it 4-0. Lino then turned provider, setting up Morata for his second goal with a ferocious strike from the edge of the Celtic box. Saul completed the rout with a close-range finish to seal a comprehensive victory for Atletico.

With this win, Atletico Madrid now sit comfortably at the top of Group E with eight points from four games, maintaining their unbeaten record. On the other hand, Celtic find themselves in a precarious position with just one point and will need to win their remaining matches to avoid finishing at the bottom of the group.

Overall, it was a dominant display from Atletico Madrid, with Antoine Griezmann stealing the spotlight with his goal-scoring prowess and creative playmaking. The victory puts Atletico in a strong position to progress to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League, while Celtic face an uphill battle to salvage their European campaign.
