Griezmann helped Barcelona to a 1-0 La Liga win at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday, in what was his first appearance back at a club where he spent five years before making a controversial switch to the Catalans this summer.
The French World Cup winner received a predictably hostile welcome from Atletico fans when his name was announced in the Barcelona line-up on the big screen, while supporters were also heard chanting“Griezmann die” as he warmed up.
