Did you see Antoine Griezmann's INSANE goal against Lokomotiv Moscow?

Did you see Antoine Griezmann's INSANE goal against Lokomotiv Moscow?

Diego Simeone's side went on to take full control of the contest, however, with Saul Niguez putting Atletico 2-1 up in the 47th minute.

Hakan Calhanoglu's stunning strike put Milan ahead but the lead lasted only four minutes as Danny Welbeck was awarded a highly-dubious penalty, falling to the ground despite apparently no contact from Milan defender Ricardo Rodriguez.

Atletico, who booked their place in the Europa League quarter-finals with an 8-1 aggregate victory against Lokomotiv, did not say how long the Brazilian is expected to be out of action, but the injury looks likely to rule him out of the World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

One of Torres' former Liverpool colleagues Lucas was also on target in a 2-0 victory for Lazio that saw them progress at the expense of Dynamo Kiev.

The striker slotted in his first European goal of the season from the penalty spot in the 65th minute, before slotting home unmarked just five minutes later.


Atleti already held a 3-0 advantage from the first leg and Angel Correa's rifled finish in the 16th minute gave them an early away goal too.

Sporting Lisbon needed an extra-time goal from Rodrigo Battaglia to overcome Viktoria Plzen.

Victory meant Arsenal snapped a seven-year run of last-16 exits in Europe - all in the Champions League.

Battaglia's effort spared the blushes of Bas Dost who missed a penalty for Sporting at the end of normal time.

Atletico have won the competition twice and also reached the Champions League finals in 2014 and 2016 - losing both times.
