In the 80th minute of this evening’s Spanish Super Cup semi-final between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, Diego Simeone’s men were handed a golden opportunity to equalise from the penalty spot.
Winger Vitolo won a spot-kick for Los Rojiblancos by expertly rounding Barcelona goalkeeper Neto. Alvaro Morata stepped up and sent the stopper the wrong way with a cool, calm and composed penalty.
Barcelona will be kicking themselves after letting Atleti back into the game.

Given Morata’s links with Real Madrid, he certainly won’t forget this moment for a while.
