The forward and Umtiti have a close bond after the duo combined to help France win the World Cup this summer.
But Costa, who is usually at his lethal best when he is in a rage, scored just moments later after he headed in Griezmann's corner.
It ended a goal drought that stretched to a remarkable 18 games and the relief on his face was plain to see.
Costa and his team-mate quickly settled their differences with Griezmann sprinting over to the striker to celebrate with him.
