Italian Newspapers Celebrate Morata, Compare Him with Raul

ROME – Spanish Juventus striker Alvaro Morata was the star Wednesday on the front pages of Italy’s major sports newspapers, attributing to him the victory against Borussia Dortmund and comparing him favorably to Raul Gonzalez.

The Spanish striker shone in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League last-16 clash against Dortmund as a starter and scored the second goal at the 43rd minute after receiving a successful pass from Paul Pogba to lead his side to a 2-1 victory.

Earlier in the match, Carlos Tevez of Argentina scored a goal for Juve off a pass from Morata. German Marco Reus managed to level the scores 1-1 after defender Giorgio Chiellini slipped, then came Marota with the winning goal.

La Gazzetta dello Sport featured the headline “Signora Innamorata,” making a pun on the team nickname “Vecchia Signora,” and the name of the ex-Real Madrid player, that could mean “fallen in love” with the team.

The newspaper devoted an entire page under the heading “striker,” reporting that Morata has fascinated Juventus after being undervalued by coaches Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

The newspaper said that “with Mourinho, Morata played minutes,” then it stated that Morata realized that “among so many stars, he would not find a place” which has found at Juventus.

Another newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, spoke of “the best game of the Spaniard with a Juventus shirt” and added that his goal “hit the pitch with madness.”
