It’s the first-ever victory for Real Madrid Femenino and that was a rather dominating display from Las Blancas. On we go!

Real Madrid Femenino 3-1 Rayo Vallecano Femenino. The scoreline says that Las Blancas scored just 3. But, the script could have been entirely different had Real Madrid put away their chances without much hassle. At least five or six goals could have been scored.

However, the players and the fans will be elated to see the team register their first-ever victory, a sweet yet sublime victory over neighbors Rayo Vallecano Femenino. Goals from Maite Oroz, Kosovare Asllani (obviously), and Jessica Martínez ensured a comfortable victory for the hosts. This victory should provide Real Madrid Femenino with a much-needed push.

Let’s see which player performed how without further ado:

Misa Rodríguez – 6.5

The goalkeeper had nothing much to do. She was safe with her distribution barring one instance but didn’t have much involvement in the game otherwise. Unlucky not to get her first clean sheet.

Kenti Robles – 8

The Mexican has been by far the best signing of the season, putting in yet another promising display. She was granted total freedom on the right flank, assisting Asllani after a neat one-two with Marta Cardona. Brilliant from Robles!

Ivana Andrés – 7

The captain is back in form after a horrid show against Barcelona (plus missing out on the previous game). She was in position for a majority of the game and sniffed out almost every attack. Could have conceded possession in her own box late in the second half. Otherwise, a fairly sound performance from the captain.

Babett Peter – 7.5

A usual day at the office for the veteran German. Commandeered the backline efficiently and held her own at the back. Nice to see her take part in set-pieces too. A good way to return to form for Peter.

Marta Corredera – 7.5

In her third appearance, she has finally shown the damage she can inflict on the opposition if she is in the mojo. A good defensive performance coupled with an impactful attacking outing from the Spaniard. Her run deep from her own half into the middle-third that ended in a slick pass to Sofia Jakobsson, who in turn assisted Jessica Martínez for the third goal, was the highlight of her performance.

Aurélie Kaci – 6

A decent performance that turned ugly in the first half. She seemed to have lost her temper and will have to be careful moving forward. Apart from that, nothing bad with her outing. One or two instances where she showed that she is an underrated ball carrier.

Maite Oroz – 8

A probable Player of the Match contender in my opinion. Exquisite volley to open the scoring for the team, getting her first goal for her new team in the process. Was a nice two-way presence on occasion and was efficient in her distribution to the front four.

Sofia Jakobsson – 8

Can’t keep this player out of your team, can you? She brings what no one else can to the team. She was a menace all game long, and maintained that scorching form when she played on the left flank for a majority of the second half. Glad to see her bag an assist for Jessica Martínez’s goal.

Marta Cardona – 7

Cardona seems to have usurped Chioma Ubogagu in the pecking order for starting on the left-wing, and so far, she has more or less justified her selection in all the three games. She would be itching to get a goal or an assist, but with her current form, the day is nearer than farther. Combined well with her fellow forwards and was a thorn in the full-backs’ flesh.

Kosovare Asllani – 7.25

To unlock Asllani’s best potential, she needs to play as a No. 10. That is exactly what we saw today, and the result was there for everyone to see. She operated seamlessly between the lines, and her chemistry with Jessica Martínez is a HUGE positive to takeaway from the game. Put the icing on the cake with her second goal in the league.

Jessica Martínez – 7.5

Her first start (and appearance) in Primera Iberdrola this season, and what a way to repay the faith! An excellent display up top as she was a constant threat all game long. She is a ball full of energy and her hunger to score was pretty evident. Bagged a goal and opened her account for 2020-21.

Teresa Abelleira – 5.5

Substituted Asllani in the 62nd minute and had enough time to influence the game. However, she hasn’t started the season in her full form and this display was not that convincing, if not straight up poor.

Lorena Navarro – 6

Came in the 81st minute in place of Sofia Jakobsson and tried to get involved in the team’s attack straightaway. She tried to give her all and attempted a few shots too.

Chioma Ubogagu – N/A

Came on for Marta Cardona with the three points already in the kitty. Didn’t have much time to create an impact but did win a corner for the team, while also taking on the defenders fearlessly.
