Today sees Real Madrid Women play host to Athletic in the sides' Primera Iberdrola Matchday 8 contest (12:00 noon CET). David Aznar's ladies, who have picked up 10 points from their openings six games, go in search of a third straight win at Real Madrid City to build on the team's fine displays against Rayo Vallecano (3-1) and Deportivo Abanca (3-0).

The Whites' boss has named a squad of 20 players, which includes Swedish striker Kosovare Asllani, who tops the division's scoring charts with seven goals in her last five outings. Athletic, meanwhile, head to Real Madrid City a point better off than the madridistas with three wins, two draws and a defeat to their name. Ángel Villacampa's charges are unbeaten on their travels (one win, one draw, three goals for and one against), with Lucía García and Cirauqui the visitors' leading goalscorers with four and three goals respectively.
