Atletico Madrid kept their slim chances of Champions League progress alive as Antoine Griezmann snapped an eight-game goal drought in spectacular fashion with an overhead kick to help see off Roma 2-0 Wednesday.However, the relief around the Wanda Metropolitano was palpable as Atletico at least ended a five-game winless streak at their new 68,000-capacity home.However, Atletico were nearly undone at the other end in bizarre circumstances when Radja Nainggolan's mishit cross came off Jan Oblak's near post with the surprised Slovenian scrambling back to cover his goal.Two minutes later Gameiro made the game safe when he raced onto Griezmann's pass and rounded Alisson before calmly slotting home from a narrow angle as Atletico scored twice in a match for the first time in two months and gave themselves a chance of salvation at Chelsea next month.
