On this episode of Las Blancas podcast, hosts Yash Thakur and Kanita analyze Real Madrid’s 0-1 defeat against Granadilla Tenerife.

Talking points:

  • Lineups and the illogical aspects of player selection; the problem in the defensive line
  • How the formation panned out on pitch and why the idea wasn’t working
  • Debate: was putting two tens an overkill?
  • How Linda Caicedo’s injury impacted the game
  • The play between the first sub and the double sub in the second half; Nahikari’s performance
  • The effect of the Maite and Esther substitution and how Granadilla putting on Marí José and Koko changed the game for them
  • Marí José scores the winner in 84’ after terrible game management on Toril’s side; Freja getting on when there was a need for goal
  • Unbeaten streak comes to an end: what does it mean?
