The squad took list took forever to be published as Real Madrid were apparently waiting to see if anyone had been infected by COVID-19.

Of course, this news comes in conjunction with confirmation that players from the men’s team have tested positive.

Madrid have always taken a very strict and cautious approach with Covid but thankfully no one from Las Blancas has been eliminated from selection.

Instead, Real basically go into their Champions League match vs. Kharkiv at full strength. Asllani has looked radiant and fully up to speed over the last three games while Cardona is slowly working her way back into fitness.

Head coach Alberto Toril will be sure to keep an eye on the latter to judge how close she is to last season’s form.
