Squad List vs. Sporting Huelva

GK: Misa, Yohana, Sara Ezquerro

DEF: Samara Ortiz Cruz, Kenti Robles, Claudia Florentino, Ivana Andrés, Babett Peter

MID: Maite Oroz, Aurélie Kaci, Teresa Abelleira, Thaisa, Malena Ortiz Cruz

FWD: Olga Carmona, Sofia Jakobsson, Marta Cardona, Lorena Navarro, Ariana Arias

Daiane remains out due to her long-term injury. Kosovare Asllani and Marta Corredera have been dropped from the squad presumably because of knocks picked up before they were subbed off vs. Atlético Madrid. Jessica Martínez continues her absence due to personal reasons. This leaves the 17-year-old Ariana Arias as the only striker in the squad, giving her a great chance to get her first start for Real Madrid Femenino.

The attack is also thinner thanks to the exclusion of winger Chioma Ubogagu, meaning that it is quite possible that all of the forward options at Aznar’s disposal see time on the pitch tomorrow.

Sporting Huelva might only be 13th in the table, but they come into this game on a good run of form; 2 wins in their last 4 and a draw against the extremely impressive Granadilla Tenerife. Sporting are a grit and grind defensive side and have what it takes to steal a result, so Aznar’s team needs to be focused and efficient, especially without Asllani.

It appears that the match will not be televised.
