Hat-trick hero Antoine Griezmann said Atletico Madrid are daring to dream of winning all their remaining games in a bid to reel in LaLiga leaders Barcelona.

Griezmann inspired Atleti to a 5-2 battering of Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday, netting a treble and setting up Koke for another after Diego Costa had capitalised on an Ever Banega error to open the scoring.

Diego Simeone's side broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark, with Diego Costa doing the damage just seconds after he was cautioned for a foul on Clement Lenglet.

Three minutes before half time and the France star snatched the spotlight back.

That let Griezmann step up for the 51 minute spot-kick and place it low to his left, giving Sergio Rico no chance.

The France worldwide was denied a hattrick in the 67th minute as he exchanged passes with Saul before pulling the trigger, his curling effort finding its way beyond Rico, only to come back off the upright.

Atletico took their foot off the accelerator in the closing stages and grew somewhat complacent, letting in two late goals, the first of which came when substitute Wissam Ben Yedder was given too much space inside the box, allowing him to line up Pablo Sarabia for an easy finish from close range.

"We dream of winning every game and see where that leaves us".
