The first match of 2023 for Real Madrid Femenino is none other than a Madrid derby vs Madrid CFF. Las Blancas’ last league match of 2022 was the derby against Atlético Madrid, and, naturally, the new year has to start with another derby.


Real Madrid go into the Matchday 14 of Liga F sitting on the 3rd place on the table with 2 games in hand.

Las Blancas should’ve played one more league game toward the end of December and it should’ve been against Real Sociedad, but the match had to be postponed because of the poor schedule organization. Thus, this will be their first league game since 11th December.

Madrid CFF is known as a very physically strong team and the players like Racheal Kundananji is expected to be great threat to the Real Madrid goal. Alberto Toril is expected to put up a safer line-up rather than the experiment with 3-5-2 which is a more offensive approach.

The match is on Sunday, January 8, at 18:00 CET.
