There is already widespread euphoria ahead of the Youth League match between the U19s and Real Madrid, with tickets already fully sold-out for the quarter-final meeting with Los Blancos. TSG boss Marcel Rapp's charges will therefore play in front of a full house of 6,350 spectators when the two teams meet at the Dietmar-Hopp-Stadion on Wednesday 3 April.
The U19s are unbeaten at home in the Youth League this term, recording victories over Manchester City (5-2), Olympique Lyon (3-1) and Dynamo Kiev (4-2 on penalties), while drawing 1-1 with Shakhtar Donetsk too. A triumph over Real Madrid will take the Kraichgau club into the final four tournament of the Youth League, which takes place in the Swiss municipality of Nyon at the end of April.
