The UEFA Champions League returns today as La Liga titleholders Real Madrid host last season's Premier League winners in this quarter-final clash. Don't miss a moment with our Real Madrid vs Liverpool live stream guide.

After defeating Atalanta in the round of 16, Real Madrid will be hoping to get an advantage in this quarter-final first-leg tie ahead of the return leg on April 14.

Los Blancos will be confident after seeing off La Dea comfortably with a 4-1 aggregate win. Real also come into today's game off the back of a nine-game unbeaten streak in the league.

Zinedine Zidane's side sit in second place in La Liga as things stand, just three points behind local rivals Atlético Madrid. In between this Champions League game and the second-leg meeting with Liverpool next week, Real have the small matter of an El Clásico clash with rivals Barcelona that may serve as an unwelcome distraction for Zidane's men.

Liverpool secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals with two 2-0 victories against RB Leipzig. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané in each leg ensured the Reds' progress.

Despite lifting the Premier League trophy last season, Liverpool have struggled for form this year and currently sit outside of the Champions League qualification spots for next year. With just eight games left to play in the league, Jürgen Klopp will be hoping his side can beginning climbing the table before it's too late.
