Atletico Madrid win with Anti-Morata chants in game
Atletico Madrid continued to put pressure on Barcelona in La Liga with a 2-0 win over Getafe as part of the fans could be heard chanting that their youth product Borja Garces should be given a chance in the first team.
Diego Simeone side took a first-half lead from Antoine Griezmann strike from a Thomas Partey feigned pass for the French world cup winner to lash a low effort past the Getafe keeper.
Saul added the second after Lucas Hernandez was slipped in by Thomas on the left wing and cut-back the ball for Nicola Kalinic whose sliding effort was parried for the midfielder to tap into the back of the net.
According to Spanish publication AS, F.J Luis, ultras in the south section of the Wanda Metropolitano during the first half of this afternoon’s league meeting with Getafe chanted“Less Morata, more Borja Garcés”. It appears that not all Atlético Madrid fans would be happy to see the Chelsea striker, and former Real Madrid player, join the club.
