Gimenez's header found Griezmann, who tucked in a neat finish to open the floodgates for Celta Vigo at home.

Atletico Madrid returned to winning ways in style by easing past Celta Vigo in a 3-0 win to reduce the gap to league leaders Barcelona to eight points.

Antoine Griezmann is believed to be holding out for a summer move to Barcelona, despite continued attempts by Atletico Madrid to tie down their star man. The effort left coach Diego Simeone exuberantly punching the air in celebration. "We are focusing on each match. Then we will see what happens".

Griezmann has proved his worth day in and day out at Wanda Metropolitano ever since he joined Atletico from Real Sociedad.

Griezmann then set up Vitolo's goal with a well-placed through ball inside the area in the 56th, and started the play that led to Correa's final goal a few minutes later.

"The reality is that today Griezmann is with us and he has been playing fantastically", Simeone said.
