The French forward believes he is capable of
scoring more than 25 goals this season as he
works towards matching the output of the game's
two most prolific players.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has
revealed he wants to score the same number of
goals as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The France international ended last season as
Atleti 's top goalscorer after finding the back of the
net 22 times in La Liga, but his tally was dwarfed by
the Real Madrid and Barcelona stars.

Griezmann ended the campaign as La Liga's fourth
highest scorer, with Ronaldo (48), Messi (43) and
Neymar (22) taking the top three positions in the
charts, but he hopes to close the gap this term.

He told AS : "I do not know the number of goals that
I will score, but I want to score more than 25 goals
this season and beat last season's total. I'm
working to reach Messi and Ronaldo."

The 24-year-old is currently on international duty
with France and offered his backing to team-mate
Karim Benzema, who was again linked with a move
away from Madrid this summer.

"Benzema is often questioned, every year the same
things are said," he added..

"The club bought [Gareth Bale] and [James
Rodriguez] last summer but he is still there
because he's always in the right position to score
