Squad

GK: Misa, Sofía

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

MID: Teresa Abelleira, Aurélie Kaci, Claudia Zornoza

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)

The big news is that Kosovare Asllani is available for selection after adhering to the required isolation period once a player contracts COVID-19. Aside from maybe some youth players being called up, such as Ariana Arias, Marina Salas, and Pichi (as was the case in the 1st leg), there are no surprises.

Fans were desperately hoping that Maite Oroz would be fit to play but she has been excluded from any potential action.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have reportedly seen the return of Georgia Stanway and Ellen White but are still missing Lucy Bronze, Keira Walsh, and Ellie Roebuck.
