Westfield Matildas Abroad: Chidiac's dream start in Spain

Westfield Matildas playmaker Alex Chidiac has made a winning start to life in Spain’s Primera Division Femenina with Atletico Madrid on Sunday morning (AEST).

Atletico, one of the powerhouses in the Spanish competition, opened the new season with a crushing 4-0 win away at Malaga.

Chidiac started on the bench, playing the last 32 minutes as one of four debutants in the Atletico side.

The visitors led 1-0 at half-time through a goal from Brazilian Ludmila, who then doubled the lead with her second one minute into the second half.

Further goals from Jennifer Hermoso and a late own goal completed the rout for Jose Luis Sanchez’s side.
