GOAL: Atletico Madrid's French forward Antoine Griezmann celebrates after scoring during the Spanish league football match Club Atletico de Madrid vs Sevilla FC at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid on March 19, 2017.

The Frenchman thinks his Atletico teammates can inflict the worst possible start to a season-defining two weeks for Real Madrid as Atletico go for a record fourth straight La Liga win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Griezmann scored the winner last season as Atletico became the first side to ever win away to Real in the league for three consecutive seasons.

«I see us as favourites. I believe in my teammates and the coach,» said a bullish Griezmann on Thursday.
