Real Madrid will be able to host Liverpool in their Champions League quarter-final first leg after Covid-19 restrictions were changed in Spain.
The restrictions began in December over concerns about a British strain of Covid-19 and forced Atletico Madrid to play the home leg of their last-16 tie against Chelsea in Bucharest.
Real Sociedad had to face Manchester United in Turin rather than their home city of San Sebastian for their Europa League last-32 first leg.

But Spain's government has now said the restrictions will come to an end on March 30, meaning Real can welcome Liverpool to their Alfredo di Stefano training ground on April 6.
Granada can also host Manchester United in their Europa League quarter-final first leg at the Spanish club's Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium on April 8.

Atletico lost their 'home' leg against Chelsea in Bucharest 1-0 and were knocked out 3-0 on aggregate, while Real Sociedad were hammered 4-0 by Manchester United in Turin, eventually exiting the Europa League by the same scoreline on aggregate.
Other countries imposed similar restrictions on travel from Britain leading to Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach moving both legs of their last-16 encounter to Budapest with Liverpool and RB Leipzig doing the same for their tie.
