Despite not finding the back of the net himself, the French maestro’s influence was undeniable as he guided his team to a 2-1 triumph at the Estadio Metropolitano.

Diego Simeone’s men stormed ahead early in the game, courtesy of goals from Rodrigo De Paul and Samuel Lino.

While Griezmann’s name didn’t grace the scoresheet, his impact reverberated throughout the encounter, constantly menacing the Dortmund defence with his incisive passing and astute positioning.

It was Griezmann’s exquisite vision and astuteness that proved pivotal in Atletico’s second goal, as he expertly navigated the Dortmund defence to set up Lino with a sublime scooped pass, showcasing his unparalleled footballing intellect.

Despite a late consolation goal from Sebastien Haller for Dortmund, the spotlight remained firmly on Griezmann, with admiration for his virtuoso performance pouring in even after the final whistle.

Alessandro Del Piero, the esteemed former player turned CBS Sports correspondent, couldn’t help but extol the virtues of the 33-year-old maestro.

“This guy is unbelievable. His mind is the most precious gift that he has, what he can put together out on the field is out of control, he can play the ball anywhere he wants to,” stated Del Piero.
