La Liga: Alvaro Morata Double Helps Atletico Madrid Stretch Unbeaten Run To 12 Games
Alvaro Morata scored twice to help Atletico Madrid to a 3-0 win over relegation-haunted Mallorca on Friday and stretch their unbeaten La Liga run to 12 games. The victory consolidated their third place on 62 points to stay well on course for a return to the Champions League next season. Morata opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 25th minute. He had been fouled by Aleksandar Sedlar but then saw his spot-kick saved by Manolo Reina. However, a Mallorcan player had encroached in the penalty area and Morata made no mistake with his second attempt.
