​Griezmann Makes History With Europa League Double

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann achieved a unique first as the Frenchman downed compatriots Marseille with a Europa League final double.

The former Real Sociedad forward scored in each half to put Atletico Madrid ahead in Lyon on Wednesday.
His first came after a period of sustained Marseille pressure to capitalise on a defensive error, before he doubled the lead after the break.

And in breaking down l’OM’s resistance Griezmann broke new ground in European competition.

Griezmann is now the first French player to score two in a Champions League or Europa League final, including the European Cup or UEFA Cup forerunners of each trophy.

With 29 goals in all competitions this season, Griezmann has been vital to Atletico’s season as the Colchoneros sit in second place in La Liga.
