Reds' Madrid trip back on

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid next week will be played at the Vicente Calderon stadium after all.

Atletico were this week ordered by UEFA to play their next two matches in the competition at a neutral venue at least 300 kilometres away from the Spanish capital after trouble during their match against Marseille on October 1.

The decision brought protests from Liverpool over the short notice of the switch, as many fans have already made travel arrangements for the game on October 22. On Thursday UEFA suspended the sanction - and were quick to stress it had not been overturned - pending an Atletico appeal on October 31.
