Preview: Real Madrid Femenino vs. Vllaznia Women

Real Madrid Femenino and Vllaznia Women will only have pride to play for when the two sides meet on the final matchday of the Women’s Champions League group stage on Thursday.

The hosts have picked up five points from as many games, while the Albanian champions have lost all of their group matches.

Real Madrid managed to progress to the quarter-finals last term, but their 2022-23 European campaign will come to an end following the conclusion of Thursday’s match.

Las Blancas began the group stage with a 2-0 win over Vllaznia, before they played out a goalless with Paris Saint-Germain on matchday two.

Their two meetings with Chelsea ended in a loss and a draw, and as a result, they needed to avoid defeat against PSG last week to send the battle for a quarter-final place to the final group game.

Unfortunately for the Spanish side, the trip to Paris resulted in a 2-1 defeat as Real Madrid failed to find a late equaliser following Claudia Zornoza’s 81st-minute strike.

Although they are unable to reach the knockout rounds, Real Madrid will be determined to claim their second win of the group stage to round off the calendar year on a positive note.

Meanwhile, Vllaznia have struggled to compete with some of Europe’s powerhouses in the group stage after losing all five of their matches.

They managed to hold Real Madrid to just two goals in their opening match of the main draw, but the floodgates opened in their previous four European games, beginning with an 8-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Vllaznia lost their two matches against PSG by a combined 9-0 scoreline, before they were comfortably beaten by the English champions last week.

Sophie Ingle, Fran Kirby, Katerina Svitkova and Maren Mjelde all found the net to condemn Vllaznia to a 4-0 defeat.

Having failed to score and pick up a point from their five group matches, the Albanian champions know that they face another tough test on Thursday, but they will want to give a good account of themselves in their final Champions League match of the season.
