Real Madrid picked up a point away at Sevilla on matchday 20 of the Primera Iberdrola. Lorena broke the deadlock in the 6th minute after latching onto a loose ball in the opposition defence, but the hosts drew level twenty minutes later when Lucía headed home from a free-kick. David Aznar’s side claimed an important point which keeps the team in the Champions League qualification places.
The clash got off to a frantic start and the Whites soon found themselves ahead. In the 6th minute, Teresa played a through ball into the area which Aivi tied to intercept, but the ball fell to Lorena who fired in to make it 1-0. The hosts replied immediately when Pina’s effort from the edge of the box was comfortably saved by Misa. Madrid piled on the pressure, but the hosts equalised on the half-hour mark when Lucía headed in Virgy’s cross from a set-piece.
Madrid pile on the pressure
After the restart, Sevilla created the first opening ten minutes into the half. Carla was played through on goal and the forward tried to chip Misa but her effort sailed over the crossbar. On the hour-mark, Jessica Martínez went close to putting the Whites ahead on two occasions both from two fine crosses from Kenti Robles. The first header went over the bar and the second went straight to the hands of the home keeper, Noelia. The Paraguayan continued to pose a threat and on 74’ almost gave the visitors the lead when her headed effort came back off the post.
Closing stages
Robles and Jessica Martínez continued to link up well to cause problems for the home defence. Five minutes from time, Jessica met another cross from the Mexican, but her header went agonisingly wide. In stoppage time, Jakobsson tried her luck from the edge of the area, but Noelia was equal to it, as the Whites picked up a precious point in the league before the international break.
