Real Madrid Femenino put in another forgetful performance vs. Sevilla, meaning that they’ve only managed a total of 4 points out of a possible 21 in the league this season. Two brilliant goals from 18-year-old Inma Gabarro and a goal from the spot by ex-Real Madrid striker Jessica Martínez saw the home side pick up a comfortable 3-0 win.
Go here for the recap and highlights. Keep reading for the player ratings on the game.
GK: Méline Gérard — 6/10
Méline Gérard couldn’t really do much on either of the two goals from Inma Gabarro but her communication with the back line seemed off at times and her ball playing ability didn’t look great.
LWB: Olga Carmona — 6/10
Olga put her pace to decent use making recovery runs against Toni Payne but ended up missing from the spot in the dying minutes. Her crosses were Madrid’s primary way of penalty box entries but they rarely found their target.
RCB/LCB: Babett Peter — 5.5/10
She played on the right before shifting back to her preferred left but looked shaky overall. The first goal stemmed from her failed headed clearance. She ultimately pickied up a yellow card and found it tough dealing with the rapid Sevilla attack.
CB: Rocío Gálvez — 6/10
Rocío was solid in her 1v1 duels and used her pace to cover depth against Sevilla’s pacy attack. She probably should have closed down Inma for the 2nd goal.
LCB/RCB: Ivana Andrés — 6/10
Ivana didn’t start the game that well but that was more down to design, with the Spaniard being asked to play on the left rather than on the right. This hampered her ball progression early on. She was decent in her aggressive defending and read play well.
RWB: Kenti Robles — 6/10
Kenti had some poor touches sprinkled over the course of the game. Her crossing was decent but there were either no targets to aim for or her deliveries were blocked.
CM: Claudia Florentino — 6/10
It’s no secret that playing in midfield isn’t the most comfortable for Claudia and it showed again. She was overzealous without the ball, often charging forward to regain possession and getting beaten easily.
CM: Claudia Zornoza — 6/10
Zornoza looked good with her distribution but her deliveries from set-pieces weren’t great. She even attempted some really hopeful long shots when keeping the ball probably would have been better.
AM: Lorena Navarro — 5.5/10
Lorena ended up gifting Sevilla the penalty for the 3rd goal and didn’t have the best of games. She was sloppy in possession.
CF: Caroline Møller Hansen — 6/10
Møller had one opportunity in the entire game and otherwise cut an isolated figure coming up against Sevilla’s low block. She tried to link up early on, which led to a shot by Athenea in the 8th min. Hansen did offer herself well as an outlet.
CF: Athenea del Castillo — 6/10
It wasn’t the best of nights for Athenea, who struggled to have an impact on the proceedings. She did drive at defenses but struggled to create openings coming up against Sevilla’s low block. Se had a shot on goal early in the game and created the only chance in the second half when she drove into the box and played a ball across the six-yard area.
CF: Nahikari García — 6/10 (replaced Møller; 54’)
Nahikari partnered Athenea up top and tried to drop and make stuff happen with no success.
CM: Lucía Rodríguez — 6/10 (Replaced Florentino; 60’)
Lucía Rodríguez was deployed as a midfielder after coming on just like in the previous game and looked alright — certainly more comfortable than Florentino. However, her impact on proceedings was minimal.
LW: Marta Corredera — N/A (replaced Peter; 73’)
There wasn’t any meaningful action to note from the Spaniard.
