Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has set a new record after his exploits for the Spanish giants in the Champions League stage.

Alvaro Morata scored the only goal of the game as Atletico Madrid recorded their first win at home in the Champions League this term as a result of the 1-0 win over German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the Group D clash played at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

The former Chelsea striker scored the only goal of the game with a little over ten minutes left to play.

Morata had earlier been subbed on as a second-half substitute for petite attacker Angel Correa.

He is the first player to scored for both Madrid clubs in the Champions League.

Alvaro Morata had previously played for Real Madrid and also scored for them in the Champions League before his move to the Premier League in 2017.

The Spanish international player moved from Real Madrid to Chelsea in the summer of 2017 for a club-record fee of around 60 million pounds.

Atletico Madrid are second in Group D with seven points from the first three games in the Champions League.

They have the same point as top spot recipient Juventus who have superior goal difference.
