Antoine Griezmann has scored some stunning goals for Atletico Madrid this season, but the first of his two goals against Real Betis on Saturday is unlikely to make too many YouTube compilations.

Then again, it might if the compilation video is based around classic goalkeeper howlers.

Griezmann chipped the ball into the penalty area, looking for a teammate, but it somehow went through the legs of Betis goalkeeper Adán and trickled into the net. (Scroll down this page to see the goal for yourself).

A Griezmann golazo this was not; however, the France international didn’t seem to care.

Great weekend for Atletico Madrid

The Betis keeper’s afternoon didn’t exactly improve after that.

Juanfran made it 3-0 after the break, before two goals in the final 10 minutes from Griezmann and Thomas Partey sealed an emphatic 5-1 victory for Diego Simeone’s men.

Atleti, following Barcelona’s surprise 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico on Saturday night, will suddenly feel they have a genuine chance of winning this season’s La Liga title.

Furthermore, they now head into Tuesday night’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against the Catalan giants at the Camp Nou full of confidence.
