In what was our opening game of the 2021/22 season, Gareth Taylor’s squad stretched every sinew in the Spanish capital as we fought out a 1-1 draw in our second round first leg clash.
It was a tough, demanding encounter.
So the chance to recharge and refresh via a swimming pool recovery session was the perfect way to relax as attentions switch to Saturday’s opening FA Women’s Super League game away at Everton.
And as our gallery illustrates the players clearly enjoyed the session!
