Real Madrid Femenino lost 4-1 to runaway leaders Barcelona Femení as a horrible defensive performance from the Women in White led to the team’s downfall. Real Madrid Femenino started the game with great intensity, pressing high up the field and matching Barcelona toe-to-toe. They were the better side for the first ten minutes before Alexia Putellas put the team ahead with a wonderful goal from outside the box in the 14th minute.

Barcelona added two more goals in the first half to seal the tie going into the break. The second half was more of a pinball affair and a terrible clearance from captain Ivana Andrés that ricocheted off Asisat Oshoala into the goal to pile on more misery. A red card for Misa Rodríguez was the final nail in the coffin for Real Madrid Femenino, symbolizing their horrendous display.

Here are the full player ratings:

Misa Rodríguez – 5

The goalkeeper had good saves in the first half but also was at fault (maybe partially) for the first two goals. A poor performance was capped off by a red card as she made a save outside the box.

Kenti Robles – 5

The right-back worked hard to execute the high-pressing scheme laid out by coach David Aznar. Was a good outlet down the right although could have and should have done much more to force the issue.

Ivana Andrés – 4

It was probably her worst performance of the season. She was caught out of position several times (as were all the other defenders) and she should have done much better while clearing the ball prior to the fourth goal.

More from The Real Champs

Babett Peter – 4.5

Was good on the ball although she was guilty of being caught napping as the Barcelona women penetrated the defence with ease.

Olga Carmona – 5

The makeshift left-back got the nod ahead of Marta Corredera and she was decent with the ball at her feet, although her obvious frailties as an unnatural left-back were exposed. She should have closed down Putellas for Barca’s first goal. Scored the penalty to get the team a consolation.

Thaisa Moreno – 4

She hasn’t been in her best form lately and this match was no different as she attempted needless challenges and was wayward with the ball at her feet. Couldn’t impose herself on the game.

Maite Oroz – 5.5

The best midfielder for the team in my opinion. She was confident with the ball at her feet and was immense in her pressing, although she played much deeper in the four-woman midfield setup. As with every player, she should have done more.

Teresa Abelleira – 4.5

A quiet performance from the midfielder. She couldn’t impact the game in the midfield, hitting inaccurate passes way too often and not doing much creatively either. The entire midfield was at fault for giving away the ball way too easily.

Aurélie Kaci – 3

A pretty disappointing performance from Kaci. She was probably the worst player on the pitch. Gave zero input in attack, was unsuccessful in the duels, and gave the ball away needlessly more than I can count using my fingers.

Sofia Jakobsson – 5.5

A good effort from the Swede as she worked hard to get in behind the Barcelona defence. Earned Real Madrid a consolation by winning a penalty. However, it showed that she cannot play as one of the forwards and that she is the most comfortable as a winger.

Marta Cardona – 3.5

To sum her performance up, she was invisible on the pitch for a majority of the time. She was fielded up top alongside Jakobsson as a striker. Playing on the right side, she didn’t do anything to influence the match, unlike previous appearances. It was an uncharacteristically poor performance, but she may have been suffering from the effects of an injury in the last game.

Marta Corredera, Yohana Goméz, and Claudia Florentino were the substitutes, but they didn’t have any impact on the game/didn’t do anything notable. They also didn’t have much time to change the game. Hence, they receive no ratings.

Real Madrid Femenino drop to third place, below Levante, following this loss. They next take on Valencia at home next Sunday, and the players will hope to put this loss behind and fight for second place during the remainder of the season.
