Watch: Saul Niguez Curls In A Beauty To Give Atletico The Lead In Germany

Atletico Madrid took the wind right out of Bayern Leverkusen's sails by essentially killing their last 16 tie in the first 45 minutes of play on Tuesday night.

Sitting 2-0 up at half time and with two away goals in the bag, Atleti looked to have the job done and it was Saul Niguez who got the ball rolling with a stunning strike early on.

Saul rose to prominence with a breathtaking Champions League goal against Bayern Munich last season, so maybe it's a German thing as Bernd Leno was left helpless in the Leverkusen goal.

Watch it again, and keep an eye on Griezmann on the far left of the shot... What a reaction.

The dip on that shot was just incredible.

Atletico would go on to double their advantage with a second away goal just 10 minutes later after Kevin Gameiro pounced on a defensive blunder and squared the ball for Griezmann.

Simeone's men haven't quite lived up to their own high standards in La Liga this season (and even then they're only four points off third place), but they appear to be going very well in the Champions League.

With that second goal Greizmann has become Atletico's top goalscorer in the Champions League with 13.
