Nigerian attacking midfielder Marvin Akinlabi Park has been training with Real Madrid U19 team since Wednesday, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

For the 2019-2020 season, only players born on or after January 1, 2001 are eligible to participate in the UEFA Youth League, but up to five players born on or after 1 January 2000 may be included on the list provided certain conditions are fulfilled.

Should Real Madrid beat Juventus in the last 16, they will face the winner of the meeting between Inter Milan and Rennes in the quarterfinals.
Akinlabi and his Real Madrid U19 teammates are coached by legendary striker Raul.
The Swiss City Nyon will host the remainder of the UEFA Youth League.
