Madrid have a 4-0 lead from the first leg. They have called up various B team players like Javi Sánchez, Fran García, Álvaro Fidalgo and Cristo González.

The 20 man squad is: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Luca in goal; defenders Carvajal, Vallejo, Varane, Odriozola, Reguilón, Javi Sánchez and Fran García; midfielders Valverde, Llorente, Asensio, Isco, Ceballos and Fidalgo; and forwards Lucas Vázquez, Vinicius, Mariano and Cristo.
