Spanish Super Champion and MVP

The night progressed as Laia Aleixandri surely dreamed. And it is that the Atlético de Madrid women made history by lifting the Spanish Super Cup for the first time. Not only that, but the red and white player was named MVP of the final by the coach of the Spanish National Team, Jorge Vilda.

Laia's ceiling seems to have no limits and she demonstrated it again in the Final Phase of the Super Cup. In the semifinal against FC Barcelona she stopped one of the best attacks in the world such as that of the culé team and was a key player for her team to endure 120 minutes with a single goal against. After the penalty shootout, Atlético qualified for the final and the last step would be against Levante UD to win the dream title.

In the final, Atlético came out in overwhelming mode and in almost 20 minutes they sealed the game with three goals. Subsequently, the great tactical work and the defensive effort led by Laia Aleixandri allowed José Luis Sánchez Vera's team not to suffer until the end of the game.

One more title in his career, but it sure won't be the last. With only 20 years, and after having debuted in the Senior Spanish National Team, it is already said that Laia is going to be one of the most important pieces of Spanish women's football in the future.
