Squad

GK: Misa, Sofía

DEF: Kenti Robles, Babett Peter, Ivana Andrés, Olga Carmona, Marta Corredera, Rocío Gálvez

MID: Aurélie Kaci, Claudia Zornoza, Marina Salas

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

Absences: Méline Gerard (broken finger), Maite Oroz (injury), Marta Cardona (meniscus injury), Claudia Florentino (unknown), Teresa Abelleira (ankle injury), Lucía Rodríguez (unknown)

Real Madrid have a fair few absences heading into El Derbi Madrileño, with the most notable ones being Teresa Abelleira and Lucía Rodríguez, as they were available midweek vs. Manchester City. Thus, youth player Marina Salas has been called up to add some midfield depth, though the exclusion of Maite and Tere should all but confirm that Madrid will roll out in some kind of double pivot.

Lucía being dropped from the squad list means that Marta Corredera is likely to start should Aznar want to play Olga on the wing. However, it is possible that we might see Nahikari there or even Lorena or Møller, who has yet to get her full debut for the club.
