Liverpool have been drawn against Real Madrid for the quarter-final stage of the Champions League having eased into the last eight after overcoming RB Leipzig.
And Real Madrid are the team who have been drawn to face the competition’s 2019 champions, after a draw in Nyon on Friday morning.
The first leg will take place at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on April 6/7, with the second arriving at Anfield a week after on April 13/14. Dates will be confirmed later today.
The fixtures will come only one game after Liverpool return from the international break, with a trip to Arsenal preceding the first leg. A meeting with Aston Villa at Anfield is sandwiched in between the two-legged tie.
There’s history between these two teams that has not been forgotten in a hurry thanks to the final in Kyiv.
It was a heartbreaking end to a thrilling 2017/18 Champions League campaign, with Mo Salah forced off after an overzealous, bordering on intentional, tackle from Ramos before a calamitous night for Loris Karius.
The draw was also made for the semi-finals, and should the Reds progress past Real, they will face Chelsea or Porto.
The final is due to take place in Istanbul on May 29.
