Real Madrid Femenino got back to winning ways against EDF Logroño. Goals from Marta Cardona and Chioma Ubogagu secured a 2-0 victory — their fourth straight win at home — for Las Blancas.
Misa — 7/10: Misa was only really tested by a cross/shot from Judith in the 33rd minute. She made the save and wasn’t required to do much after that. Misa also passed well out of the back.
Kenti Robles — 6/10: Robles marauded up and down the right flank. She helped the defense recover possession when she got back on defense. But she was also caught up-field a number of times.
Ivana Andrés — 8/10: The captain put in another strong performance. Ivana and Peter were tasked with shutting down Judith and Jade on the counter and they did just that. Ivana also helped dictate possession and moved the ball forward with her passing and ball carrying.
Babett Peter — 7/10: Peter was also very solid on the day and helped lock down Logroño’s attacking options. She, like Ivana, passed the ball well and linked up with the midfield. But she sometimes leaned too much on cross-field passes and turned the ball over.
Marta Corredera — 6.5/10: Corredera played a similar role as Robles on the left. She bombed forward but recovered better than Robles defensively. Corredera did well 1v1 against Judith and limited the attacker’s options going forward.
Kaci — 5.5/10: Kaci struggled to get a foothold in the center of the midfield. Teresa and Maite Oroz dictated play. Kaci seemed unable to have the same effect and at times seemed lost.
Maite Oroz — 7.5/10: Maite Oroz was back in her familiar role as the pivot. She set the pace for the team and moved Las Blancas forward through her progressive passing. Her ability to switch the point of attack and play line-breaking passes was one of the few ways Real Madrid found success creating danger.
Teresa — 8/10: Teresa had a lot of the ball in this match. Her range of passing and creativity allowed Real Madrid to get into semi-transition where Las Blancas looked the most dangerous. Her line-breaking dribbling helped set up the first goal and later influenced a golden opportunity for Kaci.
Sofia Jakobsson — 6/10: Jakobsson was inconsistent throughout the match. She looked dangerous at times and nonexistent at others. She was unnecessarily caught offside repeatedly as well. She did play the pass that led to Cardona’s goal and the pass that would have been an assist if Kaci took her chance better.
Jessica Martínez — 5.5/10: Martínez had some bright moments at the beginning of the match. She showed off some good dribbling skills and caused chaos for the opposition center-backs. Martínez’s involvement dwindled as the match progressed.
Marta Cardona — 8.5/10: Once again Marta Cardona was Las Blancas’ most dangerous player. She took on players and tried to play the final ball into Martínez to open the scoring. Ultimately, Cardona opened Madrid’s account herself with a good finish. She continued to be Las Blancas’ go-to player throughout the match, looking the most likely to produce a moment of magic.
Thaisa — 6/10: Thaisa came on in the 69th minute. She did well retaining the ball and helped slow things down as the match became more chaotic.
Kosovare Asllani — 7/10: Asllani also came on in the 69th minute. She was able to play in her best position — right behind the striker. Asllani and substitute Chioma Ubogagu teamed up well on the left. This partnership eventually led to the second goal of the match. Asllani contributed a great threaded assist.
Chioma Ubogagu — 7/10: Ubogagu entered the match in the 79th minute. It was her first appearance since returning from injury. She ran onto Asllani’s through ball and finished, making sure Las Blancas secured all three points.
Samara Ortíz — N/A: Ortíz came on for Kenti Robles in the 90th minute.
