Morata already accumulates a third of Atlético's goals this course

The tip remains the only green bud in the rojiblanco attack. He has scored five games in a row and I have made six of the team's 18 goals.


Morata has thrown at Atlético's scoring capacity. The tip accumulates five consecutive games scoring, his best streak as a professional, and already has six goals so far this year, a third of those achieved by the whole team (only 18 among all competitions) .

And that despite losing four games between injuries and the penalty that prevented him from playing the derby against Real Madrid after being expelled Mallorca. Since October 22 Morata has seen a door against Bayer Leverkusen at home and in Germany, against Athletic, against Alavés and Sánchez Pizjuán against Sevilla. Five goals in just 297 minutes (one every 59.5), since against Leverkusen in the Metropolitan and against Alavés, he started off from the bench.

To that scoring streak we must add the goal achieved by Morata on the first day of the League against Getafe that gave Atleti three points for a total of six goals scored in twelve games played. Something that apparently will return him to the National Team today, where Robert Moreno offers the list to be measured in Malta and Romania. Among its six goals, three have arrived head-on and the other three with the right, where the one achieved in Germany was the first that did not occur at the first touch, since it occurred with a control with the left and the shot with the right. The own '9' could achieve the tie in the last play against Leverkusen, but Hradecky avoided it with the leg. Before his first goal he had scored offside.

The big rojiblanco problem has come because of the little collaboration of their partners from face to door since the beginning of the course. During Morata's streak, only Saul against Athletic has helped the striker. João Félix is the second top scorer of the team with three goals, but he continues to recover from an injury that has taken him out in the last five events, just where Morata has taken flight. Diego Costa does not find the streak and has so far two goals, failing a penalty against Sevilla. Correa for his part has not been released, although he is the team's top assistant with three goal passes. A shortage of marksmanship from which so far only Morata is saved and where Atlético is suffering so far a world to at least create some occasion.

Defense to Costa

Morata himself said yesterday in an advertising act that "there is never a lack of commitment or motivation in Atlético. If you see the games, the team is looking forward. Sometimes things go well or go wrong, but we all run and we give it our all. You can miss a pass, not reach a ball ... Sometimes it is also a dynamic thing. When it is positive it will be much better. " The '9' also defended Costa, indicating that "Any player of any position goes through moments when he tries everything and does not reach him, and others the other way around, you go through there and you drop the goal. Diego knows that it is important in the team and for the teammates. When it starts to score it won't stop. " But until that time comes, Morata is the only nail to grab the athletic attack.
