Atletico de Madrid picked up a 2-0 win over CA Osasuna on Thursday at the El Sadar Stadium. Frenchman Antoine Griezmann opened the scoring for Diego Simeone’s squad. Additionally, the goal by the veteran striker put him in some elite company.
Griezmann moved into the top five players with the most goal contributions in 2023. The 32-year-old’s goal marked the 25th contribution to the Spanish club, and only four other players are ahead of the Atletico de Madrid star.
Kylian Mbappé (26), Mohamed Salah (27), Erling Haaland (29), and Harry Kane (29). All these players don’t have a sizeable gap between them and Griezmann, who could finish 2023 at the top if he puts together a hot streak of goal contributions.

Furthermore, not just Griezmann but any of these players in the top five have a chance to finish at the top before this year ends in a couple of months. This race should be interesting to follow for any stat lover.
