Add a "hold on" statment which basically will make the two plots combined. I have modified your code below:

@ Mark Sherstan does not work becoz x-axis are different set of values. this works only when x-axis of both figures has same values.

Look at the axes function (https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/axes.html) I put together a quick example below with your data. You could also try normalizing your data or resampling it to make it line up. All depends on what your analysis requires.
