Global football stars literally exploded on Saturday as stars to watch in this year’s UEFA Champions League gave good account of themselves. For instance, Dani Ceballos opened his account for Real Madrid, while Álvaro Morata scored three for Chelsea, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did the same for Dortmund.
In the Premiership, Morata on Saturday was a jack-of-all-trades in Chelsea’s attack. He has pace, aerial ability, and incredible tactical and technical know-how. He’s a selfless and complete forward.
His treble at Stoke City put the summer arrival on six goals in six Premier League appearances. Normally, a team would toil when losing a striker of Diego Costa’s unique qualities – he netted 52 times in 89 top-flight appearances – but Morata’s exploits meant the combative Costa’s eventual return to Atletico Madrid was merely a footnote according to an online publication, theScore.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang also replicated a hat trick performance in the German Bundesliga as his Borussia Dortmund routed Monchengladbach 6-1.
In the Spanish La Liga, Dani Ceballos was the Real Madrid saviour with double in win over Alaves. That gave Real Madrid a 2-1 win over a fired-up Alaves.
