Atletico Madrid got back on the winning track on home turf in its outing against Espanyol at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Sunday, downing their rivals 3-1 and staying within easy striking distance of La Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Alvaro Morata, in great form for the 53,069 fans on hand, scored for his sixth match in a row, although he muffed a good chance in the first period and didn't find the twine until the 58th minute.
