Morata scores twice to lead Atletico's 3-2 win over Feyenoord in Champions League

MADRID (AP) - Alvaro Morata scored two goals and Antoine Griezmann added another to lead Atletico Madrid to a 3-2 comeback win over Feyenoord in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Morata scored his first in the 13th minute to cancel out an own goal by teammate Mario Hermoso.

David Hancko made it 2-1 for Feyenoord in the 34th before Griezmann leveled the score just before halftime.

Morata then put Atletico ahead two minutes into the second half when he stretched his leg out to turn in a lobbed pass by Nahuel Molina for the winner.

Morata has scored seven goals for Atletico in eight games so far this season across all competitions to go with three goals with Spain during last month's European Championship qualifiers.

Diego Simeone's team is trying to return to the knockout rounds after it finished its group in last place last season. Its win over Feyenoord broke a run of six straight games in the competition without a victory.

Celtic hosted Lazio later in the other Group E game.
