Cape Town - Antoine Griezmann wants to continue writing his name into the Atletico Madrid record books after becoming the club's record goal-scorer in the Champions League during their win over Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.

The French international scored in the first half as Diego Simeone's team took control of the last 16 tie with a 4-2 win over the Bundesliga side.

Griezmann, often linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon, spoke of his pride in breaking Luis Aragones' scoring record for the club in the Champions League, but vowed to continue scoring goals for the club.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," he was quoted as saying on Spanish TV.

"We wanted to win, we did that and the return leg will be difficult as tonight was.

"I'm proud to become part of Atletico's history with my goal and hopefully I can carry on making history here. 

"They pressured us and made life difficult, but the boss's changes helped us win the game.

"We have a big game to play now in front of our own fans."
