Real Madrid Femenino lost in the quarterfinals of the Copa de la Reina 2-1 against Madrid CFF. It took 120 minutes to settle this one-legged tie. Madrid CFF scored in the third minute via a Geyse Ferreira tap-in. Las Blancas got one back in the 77th minute when Maite Oroz won a penalty and Kosovare Asllani tied the match from the spot. In the second half of extra time, Priscila Borja’s cross found the back of the net and Real Madrid were unable to respond.
Yohana — 7/10: Yohana got a rare start in goal in this cup match. She made a great save in the 35th minute to prevent Madrid CFF from doubling their lead. Yohana also made a crucial intervention later on, coming off her line to prevent a goal in the 84th minute. However, her passing and on-ball decision-making were not great.
Kenti Robles — 5/10: Robles had some good moments and some bad moments. She often forced passes and went direct too often. She was also unable to prevent the pass that started the opposition’s first decisive move, leading to Madrid CFF’s first goal.
Ivana Andrés — 5.5/10: Ivana couldn’t stop the assist that found Geyse in the third minute. She also struggled to deal with Geyse’s pace and intelligent movement. But she rebounded well and gave the Madrid CFF attackers trouble.
Babett Peter — 5/10: Babett wasn’t tested as much as Ivana because most of the Madrid CFF attack went down the left. Babett was too quick to boot the ball forward instead of looking for a passing outlet to help Las Blancas get into the game. She also wasn’t able to protect the passing lane into Geyse on the first goal.
Olga Carmona — 6/10: Olga struggled to get involved offensively at left back in the first half, much like the rest of the team. She was also caught upfield at times. Olga was moved to left-winger during the second half and became dangerous more dangerous as a result.
Aurélie Kaci — 5.5/10: Kaci was much more involved than she was against Real Betis. She recovered the ball well but she also gave possession away in dangerous positions and struggled to get control of the match, especially in the first half.
Maite Oroz — 7/10: Oroz struggled like the rest of the team in the first forty-five, but she showed good signs, finding runners in space with penetrative through balls. Las Blancas were able to win the midfield battle in the second half and Oroz was the one dictating play for Real Madrid in that period.
Kosovare Asllani — 9/10: This was one of Asllani’s best performances of the season. She carried her side today with a hard-working performance in midfield. Her runs unlocked the Madrid CFF defense and she scored the game-tying goal from the spot.
Marta Cardona — 6.5/10: Marta Cardona tried a lot of good things. She found space in the 18-yard box and drifted around the pitch to try and get on the ball. Ultimately, she was defended well in the final third and apart from a shot off the post she was limited.
Sofia Jakobsson — 5/10: Jakobsson struggled to have an impact in this match. Many of her crosses were over hit and she looked indecisive in the final third.
Jessica Martínez — 5/10: Jessica did not have many touches in the match. She did take up good positions in the box but was unable to really test the goalkeeper with her headers.
Marta Corredera — 5.5/10: Corredera came on for Sofia Jakobsson in the 77th minute. She slotted in at left back, pushing Olga forward. Corredera was involved in build-up and defended well at times but did not have a big impact on the day.
Thaisa — 6/10: Thaisa also came on in the 77th minute. She gave the ball away cheaply in the lead up to Madrid CFF’s winning goal but was solid otherwise. Thaisa made an instant impact on both sides of the ball.
Teresa — 5.5/10: Teresa was introduced in the 94th minute. She had some good moments but her decision-making let her down in the key moments. The play that best summed that up best was Teresa firing a shot from 30 yards out in the 121st minute when she had options on both sides.
Lorena Navarro — N/A: Lorena Navarro came on in the 112th minute for Kenti Robles.
