The France international netted a header and converted a late penalty to reverse last week’s 2-1 defeat and send his side through to the semi-finals of the Champions League

Antoine Griezmann emerged as the hero for Atletico Madrid on Wednesday as he scored twice to give them a 2-0 win over Barcelona in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, sending his side through with a 3-2 aggregate win.

The Madrid attacker made the breakthrough in the first half with a delightful header and the capital club did well to hold off the pressure from Luis Enrique’s men before he added a second late in the game, converting a penalty to book his side’s place in the last four.

Atletico started the game bright as they chased the equaliser from last week’s 2-1 defeat at Nou Camp, and captain Gabi will feel he should have at least given Marc-Andre ter Stegen a tough test in the third minute when he was found in space inside the box, but the midfielder lashed at the ball and sent it flying over the bar.
