After a difficult away fixture, Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has called for calm in the aftermath of his team’s 2-2 draw at Las Palmas.
The 23-year-old admitted his disappointment at seeing Los Merengues drop two points for the second consecutive game, but also pointed to the team’s unbeaten record as boding well for their prospects.
“Real Madrid haven’t lost a game yet so there is no need for drama,” Morata said. “We should have won but we were unable to, and we must now keep working to win every game.”
The ‘La Fabrica’ product played a key role in the build-up to Karim Benzema’s go-ahead goal, only to see Las Palmas scramble home an equaliser in the 85th minute.
“It is difficult to explain Las Palmas’ goal, they tied the game and we have to analyse what happened.”
One of the novelties of the game was seeing Morata on the pitch with Karim Benzema at the same time, considering that the two are often considered to be competing for the centre-forward role.
“I want to be compatible with everyone, play and give it my all.”
After a bright individual performance, Morata will now hope for a starting spot in Real Madrid’s Champions League fixture at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
