First leg of Champions League quarter-final tie
Real Madrid welcome Liverpool to the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Tuesday night in what is the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
Both sides come into this match on the back of wins last weekend, but Los Blancos were dealt some disappointing news on Tuesday as Raphael Varane has tested positive for COVID-19.
As such, the French centre-back with join Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard on the absentee list for Tuesday night’s fixture.
Real Madrid may therefore look to maintain the three-man defence from the 2-0 win against Eibar last Saturday, which consisted of Eder Militao, Nacho Fernandez and Ferland Mendy, with Lucas Vazquez and Marcelo as wing-backs.
Liverpool still have defensive issues of their own, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all out injured, as well as Jordan Henderson and Divock Origi.
The last time that Real Madrid and Liverpool met it was in the 2018 Champions League final, a match Los Blancos won 3-1.
The match between Real Madrid and Liverpool will take place at 21:00 CET (12:00 PDT / 15:00 ET), and it will be available to watch on CBS Sports, as well as TUDN and Unimas in the USA. In addition, you can track the action as it happens here on MARCA.com/en/.
