Real Madrid Femenino drew with Sevilla 1-1. Las Blancas took the lead through a tidy finish from Lorena Navarro. Poor set-piece defending allowed Sevilla to tie the match. As the game progressed, neither team were able to take the lead despite valiant efforts from Marta Cardona and Kenti Robles to set up their teammates.
Misa — 5/10: Misa finished serving her suspension and was back between the sticks for this match. She looked uncomfortable dealing with crosses and passing out of the back. Misa was quick off her line to deny Toni Payne a 1v1 opportunity on the counter.
K. Robles — 9/10: Kenti Robles was Las Blancas’ best player on the day. She was solid defensively but even more impactful going forward. Robles’ runs forward posed a constant threat to Sevilla and her service was impeccable despite Real Madrid’s inability to convert.
Babett Peter — 5.5/10: Peter, for the most part, was her consistent self in defense. She made a great intervention in the 38th minute to prevent a 1v1 opportunity for Sevilla after her center back partner was caught on the ball. But she was partially responsible for the goal. Peter, Ivana, and Kaci surrounded the goalscorer Lucía and none of the players could prevent her from heading the ball into the back of the net.
Ivana Andrés — 5.5/10: Ivana struggled on the ball in the first half. Sevilla constantly pressured her and she gave the ball away cheaply a few times. Ivana still defended well for the majority of the match, making some key interventions. But she was also at fault for the lone Sevilla goal.
Olga Carmona — 7/10: Olga Carmona was all over the place — in a good way — in the first half. She was her usual self going forward, cutting inside and running at the defense. Throughout the match, she did a good job dealing with the pace and skill of Payne.
Kaci — 7/10: Kaci drifted to the left and linked up well with Olga and Jakobsson. She displayed her ability to play line-splitting passes to give the forwards space to run into. Kaci defended well in midfield as well. She was the least at fault on the goal. But, again, she could have done better.
Teresa — 6/10: Teresa was active at the beginning of the match. She drifted around the midfield, popping up at the top of the box. She played the pass that Lorena eventually got on the end of for the goal. Teresa struggled to get on the ball when the match became more chaotic.
Maite Oroz — 6.5/10: Oroz looked a little uncomfortable in the first half. She had a bit of a heavy touch and her passing wasn’t as pinpoint as usual. Oroz improved as proceedings progressed but was unable to dictate the pace of the match like she normally does.
Sofia Jakobsson — 5.5/10: Jakobsson returned to action after missing the last match due to a knock. She looked lively. Jakobsson took on players and ran at the defense but she was unable to put shots on target or link up with other attackers in the final third.
Marta Cardona — 7/10: Cardona was unable to get involved early in the match because the majority of Las Blancas’ attacks went down the left. She grew into the game and she and Kenti Robles were the two protagonists that looked the most likely to make something happen when Real Madrid were searching for a winner.
Lorena Navarro — 7.5/10: Lorena looked the part in the first half. She linked well with the midfield and wingers. Lorena showed good awareness to get on the end of the deflected Teresa pass and finish well. She was unable to replicate the first half performance in the second period but ultimately scored Las Blancas’ only goal.
Marta Corredera — 5.5/10: Corredera came on as a left sided midfielder. She was not super involved but she was playing out of position. Corredera showed her ability to play a brilliant final pass but Jessica was offside and hit the post.
Jessica Martinez — 5/10: Jessica came on and occupied dangerous spaces. She got her head on a number of crosses but was unable to finish, though she probably should have.
Ariana Arias — N/A: Arias came on in the 90th minute and didn’t have time to do much.
Claudia Florentino — N/A: Florentino also came in in the final minute of regulation.
