Real to prepare at Man City
The second leg tie will be played on Tuesday night at Old Trafford and Real had been expected to remain in Spain for their final preparations rather than travel to Manchester.
It is tournament regulations that part of a side's pre-match training session must be open to the media, with the match venue usually the most suitable location.
However, Jose Mourinho has now made a late change to the Spanish champions' plans by confirming they will use the Etihad Stadium.
There has been no explanation for the switch, although it is believed that the Portuguese coach views City as a safer spot to conduct a public training session as they look to book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
