MATCH REPORT. 12/01/2023. Eduardo Olivera

Real Madrid beat Fundación Albacete in the round of 16 with goals from Rocío (2), Nahikari, Zornoza, Partido and an own goal.

Real Madrid got off to a great start in the Copa de la Reina with a convincing win against Fundación Albacete in the last 16 to book a spot in the next round. Nahikari and Rocío scored the White's first two goals in the first half. After the break, Herrero scored an own goal when trying to clear a rebound after a penalty. And in the final minutes, again Rocío, Zornoza and academy player Paula Partido rounded off the scoring for Madrid.

After a start with no clear chances, Maite Oroz tested the home keeper with a powerful long-range shot that rattled the crossbar (18th minute). Ten minutes later, Nahikari tried her luck with a header that ended up in Hoyas' hands. Medina responded for the home side, but her shot went wide. Just after the half-hour mark, Nahikari opened the scoring after a shot from Olga. Shortly before the break, Møller came close to scoring a second. However, it was Rocío who added to the lead with a header from Nahikari's cross (45th minute).

Madrid Puts the Game to Bed
After the restart, Fundación Albacete were reduced to ten players after Carla Bautista was sent off for a double yellow card. Madrid were in full control and, after an hour's play, the third would come. Nahikari was awarded a penalty, which she failed to convert, but from the second rebound Herrero put the ball into her own net as she tried to clear it. Twelve minutes from time, Rocío bagged her brace. And shortly afterwards, Zornoza and Paula Partido rounded off the scoring and sealed a place in the quarter-finals.
