FW Sofia Jakobsson

Finally, we have to praise a woman who was Real Madrid’s most productive player in 2019-2020 as Tacon. This season, she has taken a bit of a backseat to striker Kosovare Asllani, but she remains crucial to the team from a production and athleticism standpoint.

Sofia Jakobsson has scored four times this season, tied with another wide player in Marta Cardona. She is also in the team lead in assists with five, meaning she and Swedish national teammate Asllani lead the way with nine goal contributions each in the league.

It’s always exciting to watch Jakobsson. She is an electrifying player with her pace, and she has the quality to score some astounding goals. When she marks up a shot from just about any distance, Jakobsson can hit the target with great power and precision, unleashing strikes that are impossible for a goalkeeper to stop. And if the keeper or post comes to the rescue, chances are a favorable rebound will be there for her teammates.

She was a standout before joining Las Blancas, but over the past year, she is building her case for being known as a global star. That’s how exciting and talented she is. Whether it’s a strike into the postage stamp of the goal or an accurate, whipped delivery, the two-sided wide forward has shown she can be a regular matchwinner for this club.
