Madrid Have Asked UEFA For Permission To Play Against Man City With The Roof Closed



Spanish giants Real Madrid want to close the Santiago Bernabeu roof for their Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, according to ESPN.

The Premier League side will be playing Carlo Ancelotti's men for a third season in a row in the competition. Their first encounter saw the two teams go head-to-head in the 2021/22 Champions League semi-finals, with the Spanish outfit securing a dramatic 6-5 aggregate win.

Real Madrid have asked UEFA for permission to play the first leg in Spain under a closed roof at the Santiago Bernabeu in an effort to boost the atmosphere for the showdown with City.

City sources confirmed that Madrid have made the request to UEFA, and the decision on whether to play with a closed or opened roof will be taken at a routine pre-match meeting in the build-up to kick-off.

The final decision will be made by the governing body, in conjunction with the appointed referee, Francois Letexier. The provision is that the game must end under the same conditions as it started unless severe weather forces the roof to be either opened or closed.
