The 'semis' of the Supercopa of Spain between the FC Barcelona and the Real Madrid left a flavour agridulce for the group culé. And it is that although the feminine team concretised his pass to the final in the extention (1-3), will not be able to contest it with Irene Walls on the terrain because of his expulsion to the 59' minutes in front of the white group.

The defender saw the second yellow after a dangerous entrance during the complement, so alone five minutes after Caroline Weir marked the so much of the equality for the merengues. The Barcelona had to finish against the tide during more than an hour of party but attained the feat to classify for the big final in front of the Real Sociedad.

However, the drop of Walls leaves to the technician Jonathan Giráldez in an important crossing on who will be his substitute in the saga. The technician will have to decide between three names that offer experience, experience and youth to accompany to Mapi León in the central pair.

The candidates

It is important to remember that it bet by the path of Marta Torrejón in front of the Madrid in the Supercopa, a movement that could repeat this Sunday in the final. Although in the last years has worked by the sides, the true is that it feels trusted to return to the axis of the defence, since it has exerted this function in previous seasons.

Nevertheless, the vigués could resort to Laia Codina or to María Pérez to complement the bottom culé now that has much more time to analyse the situation. Both head offices already have seen action in Glass, what reaffirms that his confidence to them is full. It will be necessary to see what decides Giráldez in the previous hours to the meeting.
