The ‘classic’ of Spanish women’s football It is played this Saturday at the Wanda Sports Center in Alcalá de Henares. They face in Madrid the ‘eternal’ rivals of Primera Iberdrola, Atlético and FC Barcelona (5:00 p.m., Esport3 and BarçaTV) with the aim of adding three points to mark distances in the fight for the title.
The Catalans will go all out in Madrid to finally win the three points, something they have not achieved in the last two leagues that Barça has won. Last year, the group that then directed Sanchez Vera, frustrated the ‘perfect season’ of the three-time champions who experienced the first and only defeat in the League in that scenario. Neither could the Catalans go from a draw to zero in January 2020. The last victory in Madrid was precisely at the Wanda Metropolitano, on March 17, 2019. The team that then led Lluís Cortés beat the locals 0-2, with goals from Toni Duggan and Oshoala, in a historic match that broke assists records.
Thus, those of Jonatan Giráldez They will seek to remove the ‘thorn’ from the last visits to Madrid and settle comfortably at the top of a table that seems to be more fought than ever in recent years.
The rojiblancas, third, are showing to have recovered a good level with the arrival of Oscar Fernandez to the bench last summer. They run as candidates for the title and are once again direct rivals for Barça. There were only points left in the 2-2 draw against Madrid CFF and they are only two points behind the Catalans and a Real Sociedad that, second, has also won all the games.
To fight for this first ‘final’ of the League, Giráldez he traveled with everything to Madrid. Of all the available players, only were left out of the call Melanie Serrano and Gemma Font by technical decision. He also stayed in Barcelona Andrea Falcon, who is still recovering from his knee injury and, Claudia Pina, low at the last minute due to a right ankle injury.
Everything points to the fact that the Vigo will go out with a gala eleven similar to that of the match against Arsenal and could play their first minutes after injury Jenni Beautiful, Leila O Pereira, who stayed on the bench against the ‘Gunners’ despite having been discharged. There is no better setting to return.
