Real Madrid to train at stadium of United's rival
MADRID (AP) -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.
