Griezmann found the net twice each in the games against Málaga, Deportivo and Elche.

This spectacular form has seen him named as the ‘Liga BBVA Player of the Month’ for April 2015, as chosen by the writers at and presented by Spanish bank, BBVA, who are the league’s main sponsor.

Atleti’s, Griezmann also won the award in January after scoring five in La Liga matches that particular month.
