Griezmann scores four past hapless Leganes

Griezmann scores four past hapless Leganes

Madrid: Antoine Griezmann was in a devastating mood, scoring four goals against Leganes here on Wednesday.

The performance will motivate him ahead of Atletico Madrid's crunch match against Barcelona on Sunday. 

The Frenchman now has seven goals in two games, and 12 in his last nine.

Atletico have also cut the gap at the top of La Liga to four points, before Barcelona play their game in hand at Las Palmas on Thursday. 

Both teams rounded the centre circle before kick-off for a minute's silence in memory of Enrique Castro, the former Barcelona and Spain striker who died on Tuesday.
