Spanish Papers: Griezmann finally scores; ter Stegen praisedNovember 23, 2017
Good Morning and welcome to our round-up of the morning papers from Spain, which include Antoine Griezmann’s ‘Golazo’ and high praise for Barcelona keeper Marc Andre ter Stegen.
Having not scored since September, French international Griezmann was in desperate need of a goal, much like Atletico Madrid’s desperation for a win – seeing as they were on the brink of elimination from the competition.
Griezmann’s wonderful scissor kick, matched with Kevin Gameiro’s strike ensured three points for the Madrid side – meaning they must now beat Chelsea on the final match-day and rely on FK Qarabag to beat Roma.
AS discuss Sergio Ramos’ return, saying he will wear a mask for the game against Malaga at the weekend; whilst they rejoice after seeing Keylor Navas, Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic return to training.
They too – focus on Griezmann’s goal, before praising ter Stegen for his performance against Juventus.
German stopper ter Stegen has been in superb form this season and his performance against the Italian side was another example of his importance to Ernesto Valverde’s side.
Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo run with the headline ‘LEADERS’, reviewing Barcelona’s group win, Messi’s rest and ter Stegen’s efforts.
Finally, they discuss an injury to Thiago for Bayern Munich and Griezmann’s goal.
