Real Madrid to train at stadium of United’s rival

Real Madrid will prepare for its decisive Champions League match
with Manchester United by traveling a day earlier than usual and
training at the stadium of the English club’s cross-town rival
because of a planned airline strike.

Madrid will travel Sunday and train at Manchester City’s Etihad
Stadium for Tuesday’s second leg of the last-16 match at Old
Trafford because of threatened industrial action by Spanish airline
Iberia.

Man United held Madrid to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in
Spain.

The Spanish club had originally planned to train in Madrid
before traveling Monday, two days after playing Barcelona at the
Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish league after beating its fierce
rival 3-1 last Tuesday at the Camp Nou to reach the Copa del Rey
final.
