Alvaro Morata winner worth €1M to Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata's winner against Sporting CP was worth a cool €1 million to Real Madrid.

Marca says In the UEFA Champions League group stage, a draw is remunerated with 500,000 euros and a victory with 1.5 million, so Morata's late header gave Real Madrid an extra 1 million euros in addition to three crucial points.

The 30 million euro signing is already paying his dividends and is off to a good start under Zinedine Zidane, especially useful during Karim Benzema's injury spell.

Morata met a pin-point cross from James Rodriguez to seal the 2-1 win for Los Blancos in the 94th minute to salvage an otherwise poor team performance.
