This Friday, Real Madrid Femenino knows its rival to access the Champions League


Real Madrid Femenino will find out this Friday who their rival is to access the group stage of the Champions League for the third consecutive season, with the powerful English Manchester United as the main team to avoid.

The Madrid team, a quarter-finalist in its debut in the top continental competition in the 2021-2022 campaign and which last year did not overcome its tough group with PSG and Chelsea, avoided the first qualifying phase due to its seeded status and will now have to play a round-trip ‘playoff’ in October (10/11 for the first leg and 18/19 for the return) to try to join FC Barcelona, ​​current champion.

The team coached by Alberto Toril is on the so-called ‘League Route’ due to its runner-up finish in the last F League and will be one of the five seeds in the draw that will be held in Nyon (Switzerland) starting at 1:00 p.m. and that it has some dangers.

Thus, although Real Madrid will avoid top teams such as the German Wolfsburg, current runner-up, and the French Paris Saint-Germain, in addition to the Czech Sparta Prague and the Swedish Hacken, it could be the English Manchester United in the fray, the theoretical highest level of the non-seeded, second classified in the last Super League.

In addition, the Mancunian team has in its squad figures such as goalkeeper Mary Earps and midfielder Ella Toone, European champions and runners-up in the world with England, the newcomer Irene Guerrero, the forwards Hinata Miyazawa, Golden Boot of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand with Japan, and Geyse Ferreira, formerly of FC Barcelona and Madrid CFF.

From there, there are still teams for the current runner-up of the Queen’s Cup not to rely on, such as the French Paris FC, which has entered this hype after leaving out in the previous qualifying round the powerful English Arsenal, semi-finalist of the Last season, Eintracht Frankfurt, from the competitive German Bundesliga, or the Dutch Twente, executioner of Levante. Norwegian team Valerenga completes the shortlist of possible rivals and could present itself as the most ‘affordable’ for the Madridistas.
