Alvaro Morata has claimed that Real Madrid played for 'more than three points' against Atletico Madrid.
Los Blancos came from behind to beat their city rivals 2-1 at Vicente Calderon on Saturday evening.
And the young forward has admitted that it was an important win, both in terms of consolidating second place and as a confidence booster ahead their game against Borussia Dortmund.
“Above all it was an important win to keep second place,” he told AS. “But we all know what these types of games are like.
“We played for a lot more than three points.
“It was a difficult game, but we managed to come away with the points.
“We are more motivated now than before this game [to face Borussia Dortmund].”
