Squad List

GK: Misa, Méline Gérard

DEF: Kenti Robles, Ivana Andrés, Olga Carmona, Claudia Florentino, Marta Corredera, Lucía Rodríguez, Rocío Gálvez

MID: Teresa Abelleira, Maite Oroz, Claudia Zornoza, Marina Salas

FWD: Esther González, Lorena Navarro, Nahikari García, Caroline Møller Hansen, Athenea del Castillo

Absences: Kosovare Asllani (ligament injury), Marta Cardona (meniscus injury), Aurélie Kaci (injury), Babett Peter (muscular problem), Malena Ortíz Cruz (recovering from long-term injury)

Real Madrid travel to PSG with the same squad they had vs. Rayo. The return of Esther has proven to be a huge boost, as she has scored three goals in two games, although the continued absences of Asllani and Cardona should temper the team’s expectations in what should be a very tough encounter.

David Aznar’s words pre-match:

We have already shown [our quality] in this competition. We are going to take small steps forward. We have to be protagonists and ensure that they don’t hurt us with set-pieces. They have more experience than us in this competition and have had more time than us to prepare for this match, but we know what our strengths are.

Claudia Zornoza’s words pre-match:

It is a dream come true for all of us. PSG is a rival that every player wants to face — one of the best in Europe. We are aware that we need to give 300% in this type of game, not making mistakes and going for the victory. It is necessary to highlight all the progress that we have made. It reflects significant growth and we are prepared to compete in these types of matches.

You have to do everything perfectly to beat PSG. We are very excited, very eager to play the game. We are first timers and PSG is a superpower. Our motivation is maxed out and the group is locked in.

This fixture, as well as all UEFA Women’s Champions League matches, will be free on DAZN’s YouTube channel.
