One of the deciding factors for Real Madrid’s acquisition of CD Tacón last summer was their youth ranks. They are considered to be excellently managed and filled with promising young talent.
The teams don’t play their home games at Ciudad Real Madrid yet and it is unclear if they will when the merge between the two clubs is complete next July.
In this new section, we will be covering their weekly fixtures and the development of their rising stars.
Senior B 3 – 0 Madrid C.F.F.
Tacón’s B side faced direct rivals Madrid CFF D this weekend. Tacón was leading the Madrid regional league, Primera Nacional, with a 3-point distance over Madrid CFF and it was a decisive fixture for the team. María Portolés, Ariana Arias, Lucía Suárez and Marina Salas, who we have seen sporadically in Tacón’s A side, joined the team and led it to victory. Las Taconeras put on a strong performance at both ends of the pitch, and coach Dani Pérez received praises for his approach to the game. After this game, Bas blancas have a six-point lead over Madrid CFF.
Juvenil A 16 – 0 C.D.E. Olímpico de Madrid
Ariana Arias and María Portolés joined Juvenil A as well and were again successful. The team was clearly better than their rivals, heading into half-time with 10 goals already on the scoresheet. They currently stand on second place, three points behind front-runners Atlético de Madrid.
Madrid C.F.F 1 -1 Juvenil B
Second place Juvenil B went head-to-head with fourth-place Madrid CFF, who had only one point less than the Tacón side. The third-placed team lost to the leaders this weekend, so positions remain the same but the gap between Las Taconeras and the league front-runners widened.
Atlético de Madrid 3 – 0 Cadete
Infantil A 6 – 1 C.D. Madrid Sur Latina
Violeta Vázquez, one of Tacón’s up-and-coming talents, scored the first goal of this game with a beautiful free kick.
Infantil B 6 – 0 Racing Villaverde C.F.
C.D. Julián Marías 3 – 1 Alevín A
Alevín B 7 – 3 C.D. Madrid Sur Latina
