Godin starred on Wednesday night for Atletico as he notched the second of two late goals to hand his side a vital Champions League advantage against Juventus with a 2-0 win against the Scudetto holders.
His heroics against Inter’s domestic rivals did not go unnoticed in Italy either, with fans turning up for Thursday's game sporting the centre-back’s name on their shirts.

Initially arriving in Europe in 2007 with fellow Spanish side Villarreal, Godin has played his entire domestic career since in the country, having made the switch to Wanda Metropolitano in 2010.
Under Diego Simeone, he has helped transform Atletico into one of La Liga’s heavyweight sides, enjoying success both at home and abroad, with a domestic title and two Europa League winners’ medals to his name.
