Antoine Griezmann was delighted with scoring his first La Liga goal of the season for Atletico Madrid, but was disappointed by the result.
Atletico’s Levante equalized late 2-2 in La Liga on Thursday, taking Rojiblancos to 19 points, four points behind the leaders.

After the game, the France international football , who scored his first league goal for Atleti, said he was happy and ready to continue to do more in the future.
“I’m going to do more. I need adjustment I’m feeling on the pitch. Sparks and doors will keep coming. I try to reach my best level as quickly as possible. And I’m doing well and I’m happy.”
However, Griezmann was not satisfied with the draw. Nonetheless, it is now important to look at Sunday’s game.
“We went 1-0 up and relaxed, then it was difficult for us. In the end, the referee’s decision had some moments that were in the way and against us. Now we have to work and win the game on Sunday.”
“We still have a game left to know if we’ll be top. Plus, on a personal level, I’m happy and enjoying my football.”
Atleti seemed to drop their intensity in the second half against Thierry Henry’s youthful side and they were fortunate to escape unpunished after Stefan Savic was sent off for a second yellow card, with Radamel Falcao missing the resulting penalty against his former club.
“It’s true that we relaxed and when that happens anyone can hurt you,” Griezmann accepted. “But we have to focus on having played a great game, which we did.”
Savic was first booked for an elbow on Andrea Raggi, which should perhaps have earned him a straight red card, but he received his marching orders after he was judged to have blocked Youri Tielemans’ shot with his hand.
