They will complete a hectic eight-day period by travelling to Liverpool – which may or may not be at Anfield – on Wednesday 13 April.

The location of both Champions League ties is yet to be decided due to the current government travel bans that exist between the UK and Spain – but those may be lifted by April.

As highlighted by Marca, this will be a season-defining run of fixtures for Madrid both domestically and in Europe, but this is a side who have excelled in such situations before.

For Liverpool, they will play host to Aston Villa in the Premier League encounter between the two legs.
