It's 2009 again as Fernando Torres scores a stunner in Atletico win

Atletico should have scored a second from the spot, only for Torres to join Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro in missing from 12 yards inside the last week.

Fernando Torres scored one of the goals of the season - then missed a penalty - before Atletico Madrid made a late comeback to beat Celta Vigo in La Liga.

The 32-year-old, who scored 85 goals in 212 Premier League appearances for The Blues and The Reds respectively between 2007 and 2015, levelled for the hosts with this acrobatic strike (Above) after 11 minutes following Gustavo Cabral's fifth minute opener for Celta Vigo.

An incident-packed first 45 minutes also saw Celta midfielder Jozabed strike a post, and Torres whack a penalty off the crossbar.

Atletico were trailing 1-2 till the closing stages of Sunday night's game before Yannick Carrasco scored in the 86th minute and Griezmann knocked home the victor from close range two minutes later.
