Real Madrid recorded their second consecutive win after beating Deportivo Abanca (3-0) in the game corresponding to matchday five of the Liga Iberdrola. David Aznar's side produced a fine display and claimed victory at the Real Madrid City thanks to a superb goal by Jakobsson and a brace from Asllani, who has scored in three consecutive games.
Real Madrid set the pace with high intensity early on in the match and soon began to create chances. In the 17th minute Asllani came close to putting the Whites ahead when one-on-one with the keeper, but her shot was saved by Sullastres. The hosts were now in full control of possession and four minutes later they got their reward. A cross from Kenti Robles fell in the area to Jakobsson, who lost her marker and fired the loose ball into the top corner. Las madridistas extended their lead after a fine through ball by Cardona found Asllani who superbly finished on 27’. Before the break, Kaci went close with a long-range effort that just missed the target.

Madrid kept attacking and were rewarded five minutes before the final whistle. Asllani found herself one-on-one with the Deportivo goalkeeper and finished well to make it 3-0 and seal the win.
