Real Madrid snatch late winner in Liga F, Gift takes the L


UD Granadilla Tenerife Femenino’s inconsistencies has been a source of concern for the young side, but yet again the latest results haven’t at all been kind.

Despite a dogged fight in their Liga F match against Real Madrid, a late goal condemned Tenerife to another crushing win.

Playing at home at the Estadio La Palmera, UD Granadilla Tenerife fought from behind twice and would have deserved a point, but ended up with none.

The side went behind as early as the 5th minute from a Caroline Weir strike, but a Rocio Gaivez 8th minute own-goal restored parity.

Before the half was done, Monday gift was brought on by Tenerife, not as a tactical decision, but a forced move due to injury.

Gift joined the club this season and has already made 8th league appearance, but the goals continue to evade the versatile star.

In the 73rd minute Real Madrid were ahead again, this time Olga Carmona converted from the spot in the 73rd.

Not long after, Ange N’Guessan leveled for the hosts, which amounted to pressure from the team placed second in the standings.

Eventually, Sande Toletti (86′) scored the winner and Real Madrid walked away for maximum points.

The defeat leaves UD Granadilla Tenerife in the bottom half of the table, while Real Madrid keeps pace with leaders, FC Barcelona Femenino.
