After returning from the Nou Camp with a 2-1 first-leg result last week, Griezmann headed home in the 36th minute of the FC Barcelona vs Atletico match and then struck a late penalty to give Diego Simone’s side an already famous 3-2 aggregate win, sending them to the last four of the Champions League tournament for just the second time.

Simone’s men made all of the early running and they almost enjoyed the perfect start, but Gabi fired just over from the edge of the penalty area.

Despite allowing their visitors to dominate the ball in a major proportion — Barcelona enjoyed 78 percent pf the possession in the first half of FC Barcelona vs Atletico match– Atletico were never troubled and kept the dangerous trio of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to mere scraps.

Their golden moment came nine minutes before the half-time break of the Barcelona vs Atletico clash as they went ahead on the night and in the tie overall by grace of the goal they scored at the Nou Camp in the first leg FC Barcelona vs Atletico encounter.

Saul was afforded way too much space on the right, but not as much Griezmann, who found himself absolutely unmarked at the near post and he had no problem in powering home his header from Saul’s pinpoint cross.

Atletico were enduring a really nail-biting final 10 minutes, but they grabbed a crucial second goal in the 88th minute.

Filipe Luis galloped clear on the break and his ball to put Griezmann in on the goal was cynically intercepted by the hand of Iniesta in the penalty box.

The Frenchman squeezed his spot-kick in to the bottom corner clinically to give Atletico the aggregate lead.
