On the half hour mark, Teresa could have doubled the lead with a well-hit shot that went just wide of the post. But it was M. Oroz who found the breakthrough thanks to a fantastic right-footed effort from the edge of the area that flew into the top corner (41'). After the break, Real Madrid continued to create dangerous chances with Lorena playing a great ball into the box and Oroz forced a good save from the keeper. Shortly after Esther tried her luck with a long-range shot that sailed over the crossbar. Esther sealed the win in stoppage time, turning home a Kenti Robles cross to make it 3-0.
