Liverpool and Real Madrid have met 6 times in competitive football.  Both sides have won a European Cup against each other - Madrid in 2018 and Liverpool in 1981.

Liverpool lost both group stage games in 2014/15 - some of the final games of Brendan Rodgers tenure who famously didn't play Steven Gerrard at the Bernabeu.

In 2009/10 Rafa Benitez's side famously dumped Madrid out at the knockout stage - winning 1-0 at the Bernabeu before hammering a 4-0 win at Anfield.

The Quarter Final fixtures are expected to be played a week apart in the the first two weeks of April.  Liverpool travel to Madrid for the first leg, before the Anfield second leg.
