The tournament ends on Saturday with the presence of several players from the Argentine National Team.
Since Real Madrid bought CD Tacón, women’s football awaited the first Spanish Superclásico. And that day will arrive this Sunday, when at 1:30 p.m., 8:30 a.m. in Argentina, Real Madrid-Barcelona will start in Valdebebas, for the first date of the First Iberdrola, which will be the Professional League from the 2021-22 season.
The start was scheduled for September 5, but the competition will start a month later than expected due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The tournament will open this Saturday, with the duel between EDF Logroño and Levante, with the presence of the Argentines Stephanie Banini Y Aldana Cometti in Las Gaunas.
That same day the adventure will start Vanina Correa, called up for Espanyol’s clash with Atlético de Madrid, like his compatriot Marianela Szymanowski. In addition, Athletic Club and Deportivo La Coruña will be measured.
But that will represent the preview of the main course: the first Spanish classic. Real Madrid will seek to leave behind what happened the previous season, when they were still participating as CD Tacón and the champions thrashed them 9-1 and 6-0.
In addition, the goal is to get one of the three tickets that qualify for the next Champions League, reserved for the best three in the table (previously there were only two) due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is the first classic that occurs in history and it is behind closed doors. Imagine: they are all like crazy those who are in women’s football in Spain and you can’t go see“, Correa tells Clarion. “From here, we will watch it on TV, a little more relaxed after the debut,” she adds.
On the other hand, it will also be the rerun of the two promoted, Eibar and Santa Teresa, who will be local to Betis and Seville, respectively. While, Florence Bonsegundo will be in Valencia’s visit to Sporting de Huelva in Vanesa Santana. And Granadilla will host Madrid CFF in Tenerife.
The date will have a pending match: Real Sociedad and Rayo Vallecano, duel postponed to December because the Madrid club started training late due to the lack of a health protocol, so the Royal Spanish Football Federation allowed them to postpone their first two games.
This will be the last tournament of the Spanish league before i go pro, as announced by Irene Lozano, president of the Higher Sports Council (CSD). “I would like us to have one of the best Women’s Soccer Leagues in Europe and the way to achieve it is by making it professional. Our women soccer players deserve it. Society demands it. And the Government has a firm commitment, “he said in the previous one.
