On Tuesday evening, Juventus started the European campaign away with great success. It only took the Bianconeri one half to dismantle Malmö with three goals.
Once again, Alvaro Morata found the end of the net in his favorite competition. The striker’s league stats aren’t always impressive, but yesterday he scored his 22nd goal in the Champions League, cementing himself as the third top Spanish goalscorer in the competition. Real Madrid legend Raul (71) remains at the top, followed by his former team-mate Fernando Morientes (33).
The former Chelsea man also stood behind the Old Lady’s second goal of the evening, earning a penalty that was converted by Paulo Dybala.
The Spanish international was certainly satisfied with his performance and hopes that his team will build on this European performance and win at national level.
“It was important to win today and start the Champions League on the right foot. We showed a solid performance, there are a lot of positive points that we can build on, not only tonight but also in the other games, ”Morata said loudly after the game against Malmö Soccer Italy.
“Sometimes football is like that, incidents can mean a win, a draw or a loss, but we weren’t worried. I’ve also been through these situations a couple of times at Juventus. I know it’s difficult sometimes, but we all have to be positive, the club, the players, the fans and work on what needs to be improved, ”concluded the former Real Madrid striker.
