Draw at the Ciudad de Valencia

MATCH REPORT. 23/10/2022. Mireia Jiménez

Teresa put Real Madrid ahead, Levante hit back in the second half and Nahikari levelled with a lovely chip.

Real Madrid continued their unbeaten run with a draw against Levante at the Ciudad de Valencia, on matchday six in the League. Toril's team went ahead in the first half through Teresa, but the hosts came back and went ahead. Then, with 73 minutes gone, Nahikari levelled again with a chip from inside the box.

Levante started strongly, but the first real chance fell to Real Madrid when Maite Oroz's strike flew narrowly over the bar (8’). Following an end-to-end spell, our team's intense pressure saw Olga steal the ball back in opposition territory and lay it to Esther. She played it on to Zornoza, who picked out Teresa's run from deep and the Galician ace surprised the opposition defender with a fierce drive from the edge of the box that beat María to make it 0-1. Levante had a great chance to level the scoring with a free-kick that came back off the post shortly after, and a corner on 29' was kept out by a stunning Misa double save.

Following the restart, Madrid could have extended their lead when Feller struck from the right-hand side but his effort flew wide. Levante levelled proceedings when Alba Redondo had the ball in the back of the net from a free-kick (50’). Nine minutes later, the hosts took the lead through Maira Ramírez. Toril made some changes and quickly reaped the rewards, as Nahikari, who came off the bench on 67’, scored six minutes later to make it 2-2 with a glorious chip from inside the area.
