No matter how much the lionesses dwindled, the difference between the two teams was increasingly evident and Madrid galloped to the rhythm of its great star. tacatá tacatá tacatá. Weir appeared on the right, put in a cross that was almost impossible to finish off and Toletti was there to send the leather into the net with an excellent shot.
