Antoine Griezmann pokes fun at Real Madrid after last-gasp Atlético equalizer

Atlético Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has taken to social media late on Sunday night, to have some fun at the expense of his side’s biggest rivals.

Atlético, of course, marked their return to action a short time ago.

Riding high amid a five-game win streak across all competitions, Diego Simeone’s troops made the short trip to the Santiago Bernabéu, for a showdown with Real Madrid.

And one individual who evidently drew great satisfaction from the nature of Atlético’s leveller comes in the form of Antoine Griezmann.
