Team news and stats ahead of Real Madrid vs Liverpool in the Champions League last eight on Tuesday; kick-off 8pm.
Real Madrid will be without captain Sergio Ramos in the first meeting between the sides since Zinedine Zidane’s team beat Jurgen Klopp’s men in the 2018 Champions League final.
Raphael Varane missed Real’s game with Eibar at the weekend, seemingly rested, but the club have now confirmed he will also be absent from the tie after returning a positive Covid-19 test.
Zidane hinted over the weekend that Eden Hazard could be fit after a hip injury but the former Chelsea man was not named in the Spaniards’ squad.
Liverpool will have the same squad available that comfortably beat Arsenal at the weekend, meaning another chance for Diogo Jota to impress.
