Liverpool will play Tottenham Hotspur in the 2018-19 Champions League final at the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid on Saturday - and here's our bite-sized guide to the newly-built stadium.

Constructed on the site of a former athletics ground, the Metropolitano has a capacity of around 68,000 and replaced the Estadio Vicente Calderon as the new home of Atletico Madrid when it opened in September 2017.

The name refers back to the old Estadio Metropolitano de Madrid, where Atleti played before moving to the Calderon in 1966.

Los Colchoneros played their first game at the new ground four matches into the 2017-18 La Liga season, when Antoine Griezmann's strike earned a 1-0 win over Malaga in front of a reduced-capacity crowd of around 62,000.

The record attendance to date came in the derby against Real Madrid in February 2019 when 67,804 fans watched the hosts lose 3-1 to their cross-city rivals.

Only one player from the current Liverpool or Tottenham squads has played at the Metropolitano: Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

The Brazilian was part of the AS Roma side that lost 2-0 in Madrid in the group stages of the 2017-18 Champions League.

Alisson was in the away dressing room that day but will be in the opposite locker room for the Champions League final, despite Spurs being the designated home team.

With Tottenham's fans located in the north of the stadium and Liverpool's in the south, the organisers have switched home and away changing rooms and dugouts so each club is nearer to their own supporters.

The Metropolitano boasts a proximity to the pitch that many European grounds can't match - just 5.89 metres away from the white lines in some places.

Constructed with environmental concerns in mind, the stadium is the first in the world to be illuminated 100 per cent by LED technology and uses recycled rainwater to irrigate the pitch.

Located on Avenida de Luis Aragones in the north-east of Madrid, the ground is served by its own metro stop - also named Estadio Metropolitano.

It is a 30-minute journey, with a transfer at Avenida De America station, from La Goya metro stop - located nearest to the LFC Fan Park in Plaza de Felipe II.
