Antoine Griezmann blamed Barcelona’s Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid on Thursday on his team’s mistakes and his former club’s better legs.

Barcelona came from behind to lead 2-1 thanks to goals from Lionel Messi and Griezmann and then saw efforts from Gerard Pique and Messi ruled out by VAR.

Atletico won it through late goals by Alvaro Morata and Angel Correa, with Griezmann offering his thoughts after the match.

“I don’t know what happens. I think we lost because of our own mistakes and they had fresher legs at the end. We struggled and we have to work hard now to keep on moving forward.”

”We all made mistakes, I missed a pass and then they score after... They’re mistakes that cost you a Champions League, a league...”

The win means Atletico go on to play Real Madrid in Sunday’s final, while La Liga champions Barcelona and Copa del Rey winners Valencia head back to Spain.
