Real Madrid Castilla starts the 2020/21 league campaign more than seven months after the interruption of the championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team managed by Raúl returns to the competition, visiting Las Rozas at the Navalcarbón stadium on matchday one (12 pm, CET). Castilla will be aiming to pick up its first three points. The team is in Subgroup A of Group V of the new look Segunda División B format.

Castilla have looked good in pre-season against teams like Rayo Majadahonda, Burgos and Cultural Leonesa. These friendlies helped the team to go into the first league encounter in fine form, with a 20-man squad.  The reserve side has several players who became UEFA Youth League winners this summer.

Meanwhile, Las Rozas started the season in the best way after winning their first official match against Salamanca (3-1), in the round of 32 of the Copa RFEF. The last meeting between the home side and Raúl's team ended in a draw (2-2) at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium last season.
