Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata made it two goals in two games after he scored for his team during the league win over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday evening.

Former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata scored one of the goals as Atletico Madrid returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Atletico Madrid were forced to a 1-1 draw at home by 10-man Valencia in their last league game and also drew their previous Spanish La Liga game at the home of Real Valladolid (goalless draw).

The 2013/14 Spanish La Liga champions took the lead through Saul Niguez in the first half of the game off an assist from Angel Correa who started the game ahead of another ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

Morata wrapped up the points for Atletico Madrid just after the hour mark off another assist from the aforementioned Angel Correa.

The former Juventus, Chelsea and Real Madrid player rewarded manager Diego Simeone after he was handed a start due to his performance in the Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen in midweek.

Alvaro Morata came on as a second-half substitute to score the winning goal and give his team a 1-0 win over the German Bundesliga club.
