Cristiano Ronaldo has warned his Real Madrid team-mates that Anfield is one of the most daunting away grounds in Europe.

The Champions League holders take on Liverpool on Merseyside on Wednesday night looking to take a step closer to qualification for the round of 16.

And former Liverpool man Alvaro Arbeloa says Ronaldo has Anfield down as one of Europe’s most testing stadiums.

“Even Cristiano [Ronaldo] has mentioned this is the most difficult away ground from his time in the Premier League,” said Arbeloa.

“It is tough to explain what it is like here. You have to experience it yourself.

“These big nights in the Champions League are special occasions and it is a special sound. It is a once in a lifetime experience – a special environment you must experience once in your career.

“But you have to put that to one side because it is an important game.

“It is not a case of warning my team-mates but I have told them of the tremendous atmosphere. The supporters here will drive them forward.

“It is a special game for Liverpool because they have been five years out of the Champions League. They will put us under pressure.”
