Real Madrid Femenino bounced back well after getting dumped out of the Copa de la Reina on Wednesday, defeating Madrid CFF 2-0 after facing their city rivals for the second time this week. Kenti Robles and Sofia Jakobsson both scored in the first half and Las Blancas kept a clean sheet.
Misa — 7/10: Misa was not forced into many actions against Madrid CFF. She made a good save on a shot from a tight angle in the 14th minute and a great save in the 93rd minute to deny Madrid CFF a consolation goal.
Kenti Robles — 7.5/10: Robles opened the scoring in the 20th minute. She chipped the keeper with a cross that ended up being a great shot. Robles was solid defensively as well. She was replaced by Claudia Florentino in the 82nd minute.
Ivana Andrés — 7.5/10: Ivana was tough to beat. She did well in her 1v1 duels and did not make many mistakes. Ivana was shown a yellow card for a tactical foul after she was beaten by Valéria.
Babett Peter — 7.5/10: Peter was not tested as much as Ivana but she was also tough to get by from the perspective of Madrid CFF’s attackers. Valéria gave her some trouble early but she quickly adjusted and prevented any good looks on goal.
Marta Corredera — 6.5/10: Corredera played as a left-winger in a 4-2-3-1. She cut in on her strong foot repeatedly. Corredera wasn’t very impactful in attack but she patrolled the left flank well defensively.
Aurélie Kaci — 7/10: Kaci had to be locked in immediately, having to make a good defensive intervention in the 18-yard box in the fifth minute. Kaci and Maite Oroz operated in a double pivot and Kaci linked well with Oroz and Kosovare Asllani.
Maite Oroz — 7.5/10: Maite dictated the tempo of the match and broke up counter attacks and recovered the ball repeatedly. She also provided the assist to Robles’ goal with a really good pass.
Olga Carmona — 9.5/10: Carmona was the best player on the pitch. She ran up and down the flank, causing problems for Madrid CFF in defense and in attack. Carmona also provided the assist via a lofted pass to Sofia Jakobsson for the second goal of the match.
Kosovare Asllani — 8/10: Asllani played in the No. 10 role and was crucial in build-up. She, Oroz, and Kaci combined well, moving off of each other and running at the backline. Asllani wasn’t as impactful as she was in this role at midweek, but she has been much more involved in these past two matches than when she has played as an out-and-out striker in a 4-3-3.
Marta Cardona — 6/10: Cardona struggled to get involved in the match. She showed some nice ball retention skills and had a few chances to run at the backline but was subbed off at halftime.
Sofia Jakobsson — 8/10: Jakobsson played as the No. 9 against Madrid CFF. She was able to run at the backline and cause defenders problems. Her output was limited because she drifted wide and there was not another central presence to get on the end of crosses. Jakobsson scored the second goal of the match after taking a really clever touch past Mônica.
Teresa Abelleira — 6/10: Teresa came on for Marta Cardona at the start of the second half. She was not very effective in her wide role and, thus, had limited impact. Nevertheless, she did manage some good combinations with her midfield partners.
Claudia Florentino — N/A: Claudia came on for Kenti Robles in the 82nd minute. She wasn’t really tested in the few minutes she was on the pitch.
Lorena Navarro — 6/10: Lorena replaced Corredera in the 73rd minute. She worked hard defensively and held the ball up well.
