The second Derbi Madrileño this weekend will take place on Sunday, 16:00 CET at Estadio Municipal Nuevo Matapiñonera. It will not be streamed.
Tacón lost 0-1 to Logroño last week. It was a messy game and not a good performance from Las Blancas overall. They had questionable defensive sequences and offensively the overdependence on Sofia Jakobsson’s exceptional performances was on display.
Before the Christmas break, Madrid CFF were having a very bad season; they had been very injury-prone and had had a 15-week streak without winning. They have added 7 new members to their squad during the winter signing period and have won their latest two games. The big surprise came with their 4-1 win against Athletic, a very strong side in Primera Iberdrola. Their dynamics have completely changed since the arrival of new signings such as Nigerian player Rita Chikwelu and Brazilian forward Geyse Ferreira.
Samara Ortiz is still recovering from her injury, but captain Malena Ortiz should be back to the squad list this week. Lorena and Thaisa are both suspended for this match.
The Madrid CFF squad have a couple of long-term injured players, most notably Mónica Hickmann, Itziar Pinillos and Ale Rosillo.
CD Tacón: Yohana; Babett, Ainoa, Daiane, Esther; Chioma, Malena, Kaci, Jakobsson; Asllani and Jessica.
Madrid CFF: Raquel Poza; Antonia, Moe Wold, Amanda, Jang; Rita Chikwelu, Mella, Silvia R; Geyse, Laura Fernández and Maca.
