Atletico Madrid vs Alaves Full Match Reports

Álvaro Morata stood out as the shining star for Atlético Madrid, guiding them to a commanding victory over early-season strugglers Deportivo Alavés and securing their sixth consecutive La Liga win.

The strong start to the campaign has sparked discussions of Diego Simeone’s side challenging for the La Liga title, and in the first half, Atlético’s dominance underscored their title aspirations. After coming close on several occasions before breaking the deadlock, Rodrigo Riquelme stylishly gave Atlético the lead. The 23-year-old deftly controlled Morata’s lofted cross inside the penalty area, shifted the ball onto his left foot, and rifled it into the roof of the net.

Morata, instrumental in the opener, capped off an impressive first-half display by finding the net before the break. In what could be considered his return to top form this season, the Spanish striker skillfully evaded the Alavés defense, curling a splendid strike into the top-left corner. The advantage at halftime was well-deserved for Los Colchoneros, who had responded admirably to a challenging midweek encounter against Celtic in the UEFA Champions League.

With a comfortable lead, it was not surprising to see Atlético slow down the tempo and retain possession during the initial part of the second half. However, an electrifying counter-attack initially appeared to yield the home side’s third goal of the evening, only for referee Alejandro Muñiz Ruiz to disallow it. The confusion inside the Metropolitano Stadium was understandable, as it seemed that Rubén Duarte had fouled Marcos Llorente before Antoine Griezmann calmly slotted home a finish. Even more bewilderingly, play restarted with an Atlético free-kick after Duarte had been booked, much to the bewilderment of Simeone and the Madrid crowd.

Atlético’s hopes for a clean sheet were dashed in added time when Ander Guevara expertly drilled a first-time shot from the edge of the penalty area, slipping the ball underneath an otherwise impeccable Jan Oblak. Nevertheless, it did not significantly impact the outcome, as Atlético secured all three points, extending their winning streak to 14 consecutive league matches. As for Alavés, their long wait for a league victory away from home against the capital club continued, with their last triumph dating back to May 2003.

Man of the Match: Álvaro Morata (Atlético Madrid).
