Vale (VG) (Valerenga – Real Madrid 0–3, aggregate 1–5) They put Real Madrid under pressure in the first 27 minutes. But Valerenga had to lose to Spanish supremacy.

But the opening was good
Real Madrid arrived in Oslo with the winner of the World Cup final, Olga Carmona, and seven new Spanish world champions. But Valerenga was the one who drove the car from the beginning.
Carmona actually lost the ball after three minutes. Felicia Roglic’s post ended with Selma Petersen putting the ball over her and setting the tone for the first part of the playoff.
The second part was about Olaug Tvedten.
Valerenga had their biggest chance after a Real Madrid handball outside the penalty area. Tvedten hit the crossbar.
The 6,341 spectators at Intility were a sensation.
Tvedtun was also close to a cross from Roglic, who tricked Real Carmona’s captain down the right wing. Moreover, the Western player crossed a few centimeters after 27 minutes.
Soon after, Real Madrid came out on top.
