Ajibade shines as Atletico Madrid Femenino defeat Ohale’s Alaves

  • In-form Super Falcons forward, Ajibade provides the last-minute assist to earn Atletico Madrid all three points against Alaves
  • She has one goal and one assist in two matches so far this 2022/2023 season. 

In their second league match of the 2022/2023 league season on Sunday, Atletico Madrid defeated Osinachi Ohale's Alaves 1-0 thanks in-part to an assist by Super Falcons attacker, Rasheedat Ajibade.

As the game was about to end scoreless, Ajibade chased down a seemingly lost cause, to keep the ball in play and set up Brazilian teammate, Ludmila Da Silva to score the winning goal.

Atletico have now won their opening two fixtures of the season, and are one of five sides with a perfect record.

22-year-old Ajibade has a goal and assist in two league appearances (one start) so far this season. A good start to the season.

For Ohale and Alaves, it is back-to-back league defeats and they seat in 13th position.
