Antoine Griezmann puts Atletico Madrid on verge of final

Atletico Madrid are on the cusp of a Champions League final thanks to -- who else? -- Antoince Griezmann. The Frechman scored the seventh goal of this tournament, getting behind the Bayern Munich defense and excellently finishing past Manuel Neuer in the 53rd minute.

It was Griezmann's third goal in his past three UCL matches, after he scored a brace to eliminate Barcelona in the quarterfinals.

This one gave Atletico a 2-1 aggregate goal lead, while also giving them the all-important road-goal tiebreaker.
