Hosts Yash Thakur and Kanita analyze Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Villarreal in matchday 26 of Liga F.

Talking points:

  • Lineup, formation change, worries that came with it, and the 5 changes from the last match.
  • Soldevilla scores for Villarreal, her incognito run-in and lack of tracking by Maite and Kathellen.
  • Boring first half with a peek on the approaches of both teams; Madrid’s 3-5-2 vs Villarreal’s 5-3-2.
  • Weir’s equalizer at the end of first half, Athenea’s good decision.
  • Weir scores the winner in 57’ from a quickly taken throw-in.
  • Team’s dependency on Caroline Weir that resulted from the squad underutilization.
  • Recent rumors on Alberto Toril leaving and what could it mean.
  • Thoughts on the Copa de la Reina semifinals draw.
