Antoine Griezmann confident of upturn in form

Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann is confident that he will overcome a barren run in front of goal, which has seen him go five league games without scoring.

Antoine Griezmann has insisted that he will overcome a current "goalscoring slump" for Atletico Madrid.

The French international has failed to score in his last five La Liga matches and also drew a blank against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 24-year-old has still netted 19 times in all competitions this season, however, and is confident that he will rediscover his form.

"I don't see myself as a reference point for Atleti. The team's strength is the collective. There were many fans at my presentation [when I joined], and I always try to thank them for their support," Griezmann told Cadena SER.

"They chant my name in every game, and I give them my all in return. The Calderon gives us a lot and we need [its support]. It gives us a boost. I'm in a goalscoring slump at the moment. It's true that I've had chances, but I haven't put them away. Still, I have faith in what I'm doing and when I score one, the goals will follow."

Atletico will travel to rivals Real Madrid in La Liga on Saturday afternoon.
