Squad List

GK: Misa, Méline Gérard

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

MID: Maite Oroz, Claudia Zornoza, Dana Benítez

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

Absences: Kosovare Asllani (ligament injury), Malena Ortíz Cruz (recovering from long-term injury), Teresa Abelleira (ankle injury), Aurélie Kaci (injury), Marta Cardona (meniscus injury)

Real Madrid have lost Asllani to the medical room but have seen the return of Méline Gérard and Nahikari García. However, Las Blancas still remain incredibly thin in midfield. It will be interesting to see if Maite is fit enough to start after she was introduced off the bench vs. Granadilla.

Real Madrid desperately need three points and have to go into this match with a must-win mentality, even if Real Sociedad will be an incredibly tough opponent. The margin for error is incredibly slim right 8 points off the Champions League places.
