The quarter finals of UEFA Champions League 2020/21 get underway today as the first legs take place.
Real Madrid will host Liverpool at The Bernabeu, and Borussia Dortmund will travel to Manchester City. Both games will be shown live on BT Sport.
Real and Liverpool, who have 19 European Cup successes between them, set up this meeting by each finishing first in their group before easing through the round of 16, Madrid seeing off Atalanta and Liverpool safely negotiating their tie against Leipzig.
The sides have twice met in European Cup finals, Liverpool winning the 1981 decider in Paris – the teams’ first fixture – and Madrid claiming their 13th title, and third in a row, in Kyiv in 2018.
Manchester City, who have found the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals a difficult hurdle to overcome in recent years, take on Borussia Dortmund, a club appearing in the last eight for the first time since 2017.
City are in the quarter-finals for the fourth successive season but their last three campaigns have all ended at this stage. Indeed, they have reached the semi-finals only once, in 2015/16; Dortmund, meanwhile, have lost their last two UEFA Champions League quarter-finals but overall have triumphed in the last eight three times out of six.
