Misa Rodríguez was incredible vs. FC Barcelona Femení, despite Real Madrid Femenino losing four goals to zero.
SORPRESA. Desde la redacción de El Nuevo Insular no nos olvidamos de la arquera canaria @marisabelrr1. Por eso hoy, y después de hacer historia jugando el Primer Clásico del fútbol femenino, le hemos dedicado una recopilación de sus mejores paradas. ¡Ojalá les guste! . pic.twitter.com/OlHtvZWU1M— El Nuevo Insular (@ElNuevoInsular) October 4, 2020
Before the break, Misa saved a direct free-kick destined for the bottom corner, tipped over a long shot aimed at the top corner, denied Torrejón 1v1, blitzed her way towards the ~30 yard line to prevent the manifestation of a clear breakaway, and kept out a header.
Things were less perfect in the second half, as she recorded a very unfortunate own goal, before failing to keep out a volley by Lieke Martens after getting finger tips to the strike. Nevertheless, she still showed off her quality by denying the same player in the 65th minute in another 1v1 situation.
Her heroics was reminiscent of her competitor’s performance in CD Tacón’s opening match of the season vs. FC Barcelona in 2019/20, when Yohana made countless save after countless save even though Tacón lost 9-1.
