Madrid CFF assaults the Champions zone provisionally after winning 1-0 (Valeria) against Athletic. The white team is still sweet, chaining seven consecutive games without losing, and dreams strong of Europe. And he does so after knocking down an Athletic that falls back into defeat with controversy, after a disputed penalty annulled to Lucía García in the final stretch of the match.
The match began in the Matapiñonera with better sensations in the area for Madrid CFF, who starred most of the times against an Athletic well planted behind. From defensive merit to an innocuous rojiblanco attack. Iraia Iturregi’s team barely showed ideas above, with great predominance of long passes in search of danger.
With the passing of the minutes, the game was dislocated by sections. Madrid CFF seemed to have the anxiety of executing some of the plays that led to the edge of the rival area, where they could not find spaces. And, to Athletic, they penalized the errors in the passes. The Madrid women took advantage of one of these inaccuracies to tip the balance in their favor.
The error was carried out by Garazi, whose wallet was stolen by a very fast Geyse that was stamped with Andrea de la Nava. Then the Brazilian connection would appear. And is that Valeria He took advantage of the rejection of his compatriot’s shot to add the first goal at the edge of the break.
The second part would repeat protagonists in their first bars. This time with a change of roles. Garazi went from his defensive failure to stop Geyse’s double chance on the goal line, This time he took advantage of a mistake by Gimbert to surprise De la Nava in the red-and-white area.
After saving the second goal against, the captain returned to the scene with an involuntary action on Geyse, who left on a stretcher after an entrance to the tibia of the Athletic defense. The meeting was broken into sections in this second half of the game, with many interruptions and inaccuracies on the part of both teams.
Woke up in the last 20 minutes Athletic, who gave an arreón to achieve the victory without obtaining any fruits of it. The clearest chance for the Bilbao women came from Lucía García’s boots, who crossed paths with a successful Frisbie in the Ulloa area. The white defense effectively stopped the danger play. Frustration increased at times in Athletic, who shortly after had a goal annulled for a doubtful and controversial offside by Lucía García.
There was an end to the heart attack after this. The Basque team desperately sought a draw against a Madrid CFF that clung to the three points tooth and nail. White achieved his final mission and maintains the pulse for the Champions League, where they seek a historical classification.
