Real Madrid Femenino
Meet the Players: The Defense
Another new signing this season for Real Madrid, Corredera will provide much needed solidarity to our back line. While primarily a right back, Corredera is capable of playing on either flank, and has even started games as a right winger. An impeccable work rate at the back, Corredera is not the quickest, but she is intelligent on and off the ball, and at 28 will provide much needed support at both ends of the pitch.
At 29, Robles is another new signing this season. Coming to us on a free from Atletico de Madrid, Robles was a steal considering her talent and skill. A dynamic right back, Robles loves making off the ball runs and providing 1-2s to progress play down the feild. A decent 1v1 defender as well, she will improve the strength of our back line while also causing problems for our opponent’s own.
Samara Ortíz Cruz
One of the better performers from last season, Samara was a consistent player in a rather shaky defense. Though starting the season slowly, Samara grew into her role at right back, eventually winning her starting place, though an injury toward the end of the season unfortunately set her back. At only 23, Samara came up through Atletico de Madrid’s academy with her sister Malena Ortiz, who also plays for the club.
Having joined CD Tacón from Wolfsburg in 2019, Babett is a veteran defender on our back line. Usually playing at right back, Babett struggled to make an impact on this side last season. Making 118 appearances for the German National Team, the 32 year old has the experience under her belt to lead our otherwise fairly young defense.
Lucía Suárez Garcia
At only 19, Suárez is still a promising talent in defense. Although not seeing much playing time last season, Suárez will be hoping this season she can break through into the first team and see regular minutes in Spain’s top flight.
A strong center back, Ivana is another new signing this year for Real Madrid. Having transferred from Levante UD Femenino, Ivana is expected to provided solidity in our defense. Usually on the left side in a back four, Ivana is aggressive off her line and incisive in her passing. Still only 26, her positional awareness and 1v1 defending make her a much needed addition to this back line.
Daiane Limeira Santos Silva
Although one of the weaker performers last season, Daiane has previously played for both París Saint Germaín and the Brazil National Team. At just 23, she first joined CD Tacón on loan, but her transfer was made permanent in December. Daiane played primarily as left center back in a back line riddled with i visual mistakes. With new talent, she will have to fight for her place in this new Real Madrid side.
