Finally, it looks like Real Madrid will be able to host Liverpool in Spain at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
It has been confirmed that restrictions on incoming flights from the United Kingdom will ease on March 30, just in time for the match on April 6.
This news means the game won’t have to be played in Budapest, as had been proposed.
The same ruling means that Granada will be able to host Manchester United in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final match-up on April 8.
This is good news for the Spanish sides, who won’t have to endure, like Atletico Madrid did in the last round, playing a ‘home’ match at a neutral venue.
It also means less travelling, which is a key bonus at a crucial stage in the season.
Bear in mind that four days after Jurgen Klopp‘s side travel to Madrid, it will be Barcelona who come to town to take on Los Blancos.
