Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres have forged a deadly partnership at Atletico Madrid this season.

The attacking pair have terrorised defences throughout the course of the campaign to the point where they almost tasted La Liga success and could yet lift the Champions League trophy.

Atleti face rivals Real Madrid on May 28 in Milan and have the chance to exact revenge for their defeat at the same stage in 2014.

And Griezmann believes that alongside his Spanish teammate, they can do just that.

The Frenchman also admitted that he would love to see Torres score the winner against Real in the final.

On his relationship with the 32-year-old, he told AS: “At the beginning it’s always hard. You don’t know the other player, how he loses defenders, if he likes the ball at his feet, in space, or if he plays one-twos… We lacked understanding at the start.

“The same thing happens to me with France. I’ve played a lot of games but I still don’t know what Payet, Giroud and Benzema prefer.

“I try to give Fernando the ball in the best positions and he knows where the goal is. I hope he scores the winner in Milan.”

Griezmann also revealed how Atletico can trump their rivals in the final.

“We have to play a great game and defend well,” he continued. “We have to take the chances we create.

"[If the fans] trust in us, everything will go well."
