MATCH RECAP

Morata header earns Atleti important Champions League win

Our team earned a 1-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday thanks to a Morata header.

Atleti secured an important 1-0 home win over Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday thanks to a second half header from Morata.

Our team kicked off the game with high intensity, but suffered a setback early on as Giménez was forced to make way for Hermoso due to a thigh injury. Our first shot of the game came following an excellent pass from Herrera as Lodi made his way down the left flank. The Brazilian tried his luck, but his strike was denied by the keeper. Thomas also tried his luck a few minutes later, but he struck wide.

Atleti collected several good chances after the break, mainly through Costa – following an excellent Trippier cross – and Correa. The Argentine then made way for Lemar. Simeone made his last substitution of the game with 20 minutes to go as Morata was brought on for Koke. We launched an all-out attack trying to score the winner and we finally found it as Morata head home a perfect Lodi cross. We finally found our goal and we then held on to the result until the end to pick up three very important points.
