Alharilla Casado is an institution at Levante UD. The captain of the Women's First Team once again proved her worth by delivering one of the highlights of the weekend for the Granotas, this time on two counts. The Jaén-born player returned to the pitch after her injury and, moreover, reached the impressive milestone of 300 official matches defending the club's blue and red jersey. Once again, the veteran Levante player is breaking barriers.

The player from Porcuna joined Levante UD from Sporting Club Huelva in the summer of 2012-13 at the age of 21. In total, she has spent 12 seasons wearing the club's crest on her chest, and just by looking at her stats halfway through this fruitful period, one can understand Alharilla's importance to the team and the club. In her first six seasons at Orriols, she was only a substitute in one league match, starting 163 games, almost always making the starting lineup, and scoring 27 goals from her previous position as a winger. Having traveled the whole journey (with more to come after renewing her contract until 2026), she has now played 300 matches across all competitions under the Levante banner.

Breaking it down, Alharilla has played 273 matches in the Liga F and the former Superliga, 23 in cup competitions (including three finals), and has had four participations in the UEFA Women's Champions League. "I remember a lot about when I started, about the first Champions League qualification, which is the biggest achievement I've had with the club," the captain recalled after her contract renewal. As for her goal-scoring ability, which has diminished since she took on the role of a full-back, she has netted 40 goals in these 12 years.

Recently, Alharilla expressed being "very happy and excited" after renewing her contract with Levante UD. "I am happy to be here, just like from the first day I arrived at this club, which is my home. I will continue to contribute my bit so that Levante UD remains at the top, competing with the best, as we have done so far." Alharilla returned to the pitch in the victory against Villarreal CF after overcoming a complicated fibula fracture in her right leg, which she suffered before the Super Cup final against FC Barcelona in Leganés. The captain stepped onto the field after halftime and enjoyed 45 minutes, contributing to the Granotas' final triumph over the Yellow Submarine.

Alharilla regresó a los terrenos de juego en la victoria frente al Villarreal CF tras superar la complicada fractura en el peroné de la pierna derecha que sufrió en la previa de la final de la Supercopa disputada frente al FC Barcelona en Leganés. La capitana saltó al césped tras el intermedio y pudo disfrutar de 45 minutos, colaborando para el triunfo final de las granotas frente al Submarino amarillo.
