Morata will face one of her favorite victims

The Atlético striker wants to maintain his good streak in the closing of LaLiga against Real Sociedad, which he has scored four goals in five games.


Álvaro Morata (27 years old) has established himself as Atlético's great offensive reference this season. The striker from Madrid is the top scorer of Simeone with 12 goals in 33 matches of the domestic championship and 16 in 42 matches between all competitions. Its performance in the return of LaLiga after the stoppage due to the pandemic is especially notable. In the 10 duels held so far, the tip has scored four goals.

He still has one game left to finish his participation in the regularity tournament and the rival (Real Sociedad) is conducive to increasing his account if we stick to previous experience. And it is that Morata has scored the txuri-urdines four goals in the five meetings in which it has been measured with the Basques.

The first time the Atlético striker faced each other with the Blue and Whites was in the 2013-14 season and wore the shirt of the eternal rival, Real Madrid. In that course, meringues and people from San Sebastian faced each other on matchdays 13 and 32 (at that time the league calendar was symmetrical, unlike now) with respective victories by the capitals by 5-1 and 0-4, respectively. Morata participated in both encounters. In the first leg, played at the Santiago Bernabéu, he played the last eight minutes and failed to score. He was luckier in the Madrid visit to Anoeta, since, despite participating only four minutes, he was able to score in the 88th minute by Di María.

The following year, still under white discipline, he also participated in the two meetings between his team and the royalists. Both clubs began their journey in LaLiga seeing the faces in the Gipuzkoan feud with a 0-3 victory for Real Madrid. Morata played 77 minutes, but was unable to pierce the Basque goal. In the duel of the second round (matchday 20), the Madrid striker jumped onto the pitch 24 minutes and this time he did see the door. Specifically in the 82 'after receiving an assist from Lucas Vázquez, marking the third and final goal of Madrid's victory (3-0) .

He had to wait four seasons, already under the orders of Cholo at Atlético, to return to face those of San Sebastián. It was on day 26 of last season in the second round meeting in which the rojiblancos visited Anoeta (Morata joined the winter market from Chelsea, so he was not present in the duel of the tenth day). In the Guipúzcoa game, the mattress tip played 71 minutes and scored the two goals of the athletic victory (0-2), in the 30 'and in the 33', passed by Godín and Koke, respectively.

Morata will arrive wanting to maintain his positive trend against the Blue and Whites (almost one goal per duel) and, even more, after missing the first round match held at the Realist Stadium (Matchday 4) due to injury. They took all three points after winning 2-0. We will see if the striker matches or even improves his scoring average against Real Sociedad in the match that will be measured tomorrow Sunday at 21:00 at the Wanda Metropolitano.
