Today, Real Madrid Femenino conducted their first training session with coach David Aznar on Pitch 5 at Real Madrid City.

The team started the session with several rondos, while the three goalkeepers worked individually. David Aznar then divided the players into two groups to carry out a combination of physical and ball work, with control and possession exercises in small spaces to bring the session to an end.
