Real Madrid Femenino kick off their UEFA Women’s Champions League Group Stage campaign today. Las Blancas travel to Ukraine to take on WFC Zhytlobud 1 Kharkiv. Real Madrid continue to struggle in the league, picking up just one point through five matches. But Las Blancas put in two of their best performances of the season against Manchester City in Madrid and in England in the UWCL qualifiers. A win in the opening match of the group stage against WFC Zhytlobud 1 Kharkiv could not only set Las Blancas up for success in the UWCL but it could be the spark they need to turn their league form around.
