Real Madrid secured a top three finish and UEFA Champions League qualification with a 3-2 comeback win over Real Sociedad on Sunday. La Real took a 2-0 lead after a first half goal and an early penalty in the second half, both of which were converted by Amaiur. Las Blancas got one back in the 70th minute through Asllani, which kick-started the remontada. Kenti Robles scored in the 81st minute and Jessica Martínez converted three minutes later in a dramatic victory.

Player Ratings

Misa — 6/10: Misa was beaten two times by Amaiur but she was not at fault on either goal conceded. Mistakes at the back and questionable refereeing led to both goals. Misa was not tested much apart from those two occasions.

Kenti Robles — 8.5/10: Robles was involved in the attack early and tracked back well defensively. The right back played a crucial role in the comeback, making a brilliant run and finishing calmly to tie the match at 2-2. Robles also stifled the La Real attack with some important defensive interventions.

Babett Peter — 6/10: Peter was solid on the day. She defended well despite the defense conceding twice. Peter also made her presence felt on set-pieces. She almost converted a header from a corner kick.

Ivana Andrés — 6.5/10: Ivana was also good defensively. She stepped up well to make sure Amaiur was caught offside but the referee missed the call and La Real scored. Ivana was good on the ball in the second half and helped Real Madrid maintain dominance in possession.

Olga Carmona — 7/10: Olga started the match at left back. She had her hands full defensively having to deal with an in-form Amaiur. Olga was beaten by the La Real attacker on the first goal but created danger in attack. Corredera came on in the second half and Olga was moved up the pitch and eventually assisted the game winner.

Aurélie Kaci — 6.5/10: Kaci did a lot of running offensively and defensively. She did not have her best match on the ball but got forward well and was active in the final third.

Maite Oroz — 7/10: Maite Oroz did not have a great first half. She gave the ball away in dangerous positions repeatedly, one of which led to the first goal. However, she recovered well and was crucial in possession and in chance creation. Oroz split the defense, assisting Robles’s goal and opening up the defense for Asllani’s goal.

Teresa — 9.5/10: Teresa was the best player on the pitch. She helped dictate possession and constantly beat La Real’s press single-handedly. Teresa also got into dangerous positions, received on the half-turn, drove at the defense, and played line-splitting passes. Her press resistance kick-started Las Blancas’ first and second goals

Kosovare Asllani — 8/10: Asllani made late runs from deep that unsettled the Real Sociedad defense. She constantly got into dangerous positions but lacked that clinical finish for most of the match. In the 70th minute, she finally converted her chance. Marta Cardona played a perfect pass to the foot of Asllani, who tapped it in to make it 2-1.

Sofia Jakobsson — 6.5/10: Jakobsson was active down the left flank. She combined well with Olga Carmona and made life difficult for La Real. Jakobsson repeatedly got into dangerous positions but was unable to make the most of her chances.

Marta Cardona — 7/10: Cardona had a limited impact compared to her lofty standards until late in the match. She provided the assist for Asllani and had an opportunity to make it 4-2 with the last kick of the match but she pulled her shot just wide.

Substitutes:

Jessica Martínez — 9/10: Martínez was the definition of a super sub and changed the match. Her run opened up space for Cardona to run into for the first goal. Then, she played the ball to Maite Oroz, who assisted Kenti Robles for the second goal, before finishing with her head to make it 3-2.

Marta Corredera — 7/10: Corredera came on and provided defensive solidity at left back, allowing Olga Carmona to get forward. Corredera also played a lofted free kick to Olga Carmona, who assisted Martínez for the winner.

Lorena Navarro — N/A: Lorena was introduced in added time.
