Real Madrid play one of the most important games of the season this evening. A place in the group stage of the Women’s Champions League is at stake as they take on Manchester City (8pm CEST). Our team will play at the Manchester City Academy Stadium for the first time in their history, for the second leg of the second qualifying round. Following the 1-1 draw in the first leg at the Di Stéfano, if the score remains level after normal time, the match will be decided in extra time.
The side will needbe looking to limit the chances for an opponent who is already top of the league after a 4-0 win against Everton on the opening day of the season. David Aznar and his 18-strong squad will need Misa to produce a repeat performance from the first leg, while the defence will need to nullify the Citizens’ goalscoring threat.

Goalkeepers: Misa and Sofia.
Defenders: K. Robles, Peter, Ivana, Olga, M. Corredera, Lucía Rodríguez and Rocío.
Midfielders: Teresa, Kaci and Zornoza.
