Antoine Griezmann overtakes Fernando Torres' Atletico Madrid scoring record

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is up to fifth place in the list of all time goal scorers for the club, overtaking club legend Fernando Torres.

French international Griezmann netted his 130th goal for Diego Simeone's side during the 1-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, and he could finish the season even higher.

As it stands, fourth place Jose Eulogio Garate (136) and Paco Campos in third (146), could be overtaken before the end of the campaign if he can continue his positive form.

After committing his future to the club in the summer, Griezmann may have his eye on the top two in the coming seasons, with second place Adrian Escudero on 169, and Luiz Aragones leading the way with 172 goals. 

He has scored 91 goals in La Liga, 21 in the Champions League, six in the Europa League and 12 in the Copa del Rey, during his time in the Spanish capital.
