Boost for Real as home tie with Liverpool to be played in Madrid


Real Madrid have been given a massive boost ahead of their Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool. 

Their home leg on April 6 is set to be played at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in Madrid.

Real have been using the ground while their Santiago Bernabeu home is undergoing renovations.

The Spanish government have confirmed that restrictions on incoming flights from the United Kingdom will be lifted on March 30, in time for the first leg with the six-time Champions League winners.

The tie the first time the sides have met competitively since the 2019 final in Kyiv, which Real won 3-1 aided by some Loris Karius howlers.

Budapest's Puskas Arena had been earmarked as a potential venue for the quarter-final first leg, if travel restrictions had prevented Liverpool from entering Spain.

The Hungarian capital had been kind to Jurgen Klopp's side in recent weeks, hosting back-to-back 2-0 victories over RB Leipzig.

The same easing of travel restrictions will allow Granada to play host to Manchester United at their Los Cármenes Stadium in the Europa League on April 8.
