Griezmann threatens Benzema!

One of the few French players to have played both matches during the international break, Antoine Griezmann once again shone, confirming his current fine form. However, he failed to score, even in the historic 14-0 win over Gibraltar. On Saturday, in an Atletico Madrid shirt, the native of Mâconnais was much more discreet against Mallorca. But it was he who scored the only goal of the game.

Found at the heart ofto this goal. With nine goals to his name, the Frenchman is now the second-highest scorer in the world, second only to Jude Bellingham. Now just three goals shy of Luis Aragones’ Colchonero record, Grizou has consolidated his place as one of the most decisive players in the history of La Liga.

His goal on Saturday earned Atletico Madrid two extra points, taking the total number of points they have amassed in La Liga thanks to his goals to 121 (83 points for Atletico, 23 for Real Sociedad and 16 for FC Barcelona). Only four players have ever done better in the history of the Spanish league: Lionel Messi (212 points), Raul (142), Cristiano Ronaldo (132) and Karim Benzema (130). While the former Barcelona man’s mark seems unattainable, the three other players who have achieved the same feat are all in the same league.
