Hugo Duro enters Zidane's list for the Champions League

UEFA has released the rosters of players for the Champions League with a surprise at Real Madrid. The white club has registered Hugo Duro in the A list for the maximum continental competition. The 20-year-old forward, on loan from Getafe to play for Castilla, occupies one of the 25 chips of the main team. Madrid thus covers the only vacancy it had on that A list, since Zidane currently has 24 players in its squad with a first-team record. The attacker, who made his debut with a goal as an under-21 international in September, could not occupy a place on the B list as he did not meet the requirement of having been at the club for two years.

Despite being included in that list A, Hugo Duro will wear a player number 'of the subsidiary': the 34. This is due to the fact that in the Champions League there is no list of numbers specifically reserved for players from lists A and B, as is the case in LaLiga, where footballers with a first-team record have numbers 1 to 25 reserved. Thus, In the Champions League, the 16 that Mayoral has worn before leaving on loan to Roma will also be free.

Madrid have provisionally registered (list B can be modified until the day before each match) in list B 9 Castilla players: they are the goalkeepers Altube (who usually assumes the functions of third goalkeeper of the first team in the League) and Luis Lopez; the defenders Chust, Miguel Gutierrez Y Sergio santos; midfielders Marvin, Arribas, White Y Dotor and the striker Rate. All of them, except Altube, were proclaimed champions of the Youth League last August with Raúl at the controls of the Juvenil.
