Going defensive.

Matchday 5 of the UEFA Women’s Champions League is do-or-die for both teams but more so for Las Blancas. Real Madrid is 2 points behind Paris Saint-Germain and a win would mean they would regain the power over their own fate in the competition. Losing the match would mean automatic elimination, one matchday early. A draw would mean both teams depend on the last matchday, depending on how the French team does against Chelsea.

Alberto Toril hasn’t changed his line-up from the first leg against PSG except that Weir is now back in midfield as Zornoza is benched and Feller finds her way into the starting line-up. Once again, he’s going for a more defensive midfield with Toletti and Freja Siri.
