Real Madrid Femenino will come in second

My colleague Nichole Singleton explained why Real Madrid are still in the Liga Iberdrola title race, but I honestly have a hard time seeing Real truly competing with Barcelona in the near future. Their two losses to La Blaugrana this season have shown that Real are still, understandably, a way’s away from that goal in their project.

But there is no reason why they cannot come in second. Currently, Levante sit in second place in the table, but they are only one point ahead of Real Madrid. More importantly, Las Blancas have a game in hand on Levante, who are traditionally one of the league’s strongest sides along with Real’s rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

Based on what we have seen this season, Las Blancas are the better side. They have a better goal differential despite playing one fewer game, too, and they have more star power. The likes of Ivana Andres, Maite Oroz, Misa, Kosovare Asllani, Sofia Jakobsson, Marta Cardona, Olga Carmona, Teresa Abelleira, and Kenti Robles are among the league’s very best players.

They will lead the way for Las Blancas, and there is a LOT to celebrate about coming in second. There is no shame in not winning the title with Barcelona on an elite level, and, most importantly, a second-place finish would secure Real Madrid the UEFA Champions League. And that would be amazing, if Real were to accomplish this placement in just their first season with investment under the club’s true name.
