Morata dries

Gabby Barker



Morata is the Atlético reference forward. Sin Costa, operated in November of a cervical disc herniation and who returned to Liverpool but will follow a specific plan not to force, so that when he returns he will do it well, in real conditions, to be able to contribute and add, in plan Beast and not Cute kitty, the weight of the goals falls on him. And Madrid is currently Atlético's top scorer, with 10 goals, seven in the League, two in the Champions League and one in the Super Cup, but almost all concentrated in 2019, not in 2020. That was the face, at this moment the cross lives. Because right now Álvaro Morata is dry: he has only scored a goal in 2020, a goal in nine games (Atlético has played eleven in this period but he did not dispute it due to injury, Granada, and another, against Cultural, for technical decision). It was against Barcelona, ​​in the Saudi Super Cup, on January 9. And of penalty.

A drought that seems to torment the footballer himself. The photo is his reaction last Sunday, on the bench, after being exchanged for Cholo Simeone in the 82nd minute. As soon as he arrived he threw an angry bottle at the floor, then put his hands to his face and thus remained a few instants Sore, annoyed. His match was all fight, like everyone else, but little success. The striker, who arrived a year ago, has earned the love and respect of a hobby of which, a part, awaited him to the shout of “Less Morata and more Borja Garcés” for his Real Madrid past. His commitment is impeccable, his work dark every game, fascinating, fighting. But since he returned last February 14 after having suffered a muscle injury in the twin, grade I, in the derby against Real Madrid (February 2) he is slower, with less unchecking.

Correa takes the witness

His return came 16 days after having suffered that puncture in the leg. He had minutes against Valencia and started against Liverpool, the game marked in red on the team's calendar, the season was going through that round of eighths (as will happen through the lap in Anfield) but only contributed fight, not goals. Correa, second scorer of the team, is currently three from Morata, but while the Argentine has participated in 15 goals (the one with the most team, 7 and 8 assists), the Madrid player has done it in 12 (10 and 2 assists). Taking his witness. While everyone waits for the rain to return to their boots.
