Antoine Griezmann has overtaken Fernando Torres as the fifth-highest goalscorer in Atletico Madrid history.

The France star drew level with the former club captain when he struck from the penalty spot in the 3-1 derby defeat to Real Madrid last week.

Griezmann scored his 130th goal for the club in all competitions with the winner over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday, a result that moved Atletico to within four points of La Liga leaders Barcelona, having played a game more.

The 27-year-old is behind only Luis Aragones (172 goals), Adrian Escudero (169), Paco Campos (146) and Jose Eulogio Garate (136) in the all-time standings.

Griezmann has now scored eight goals in his last six meetings with Rayo in all competitions.

He has sealed a 1-0 win in the last three of those matches.
