tickets sold out in a flash


Real Madrid fans are eager to support their team in the second leg of their last-16 UEFA Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain. Tickets for the blockbuster match went on sale for the general public on March 1, and were sold out in less than four hours.

The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid will host the second leg on March 9, with the home team coming in with a 1-0 deficit. The tickets had been made available for club members, season ticket holders and Madridistas at an earlier date, and only 6,000 were left to be sold on March 1. Overall, the stadium will be holding a total of 60,000 fans on match day.

The new stadium is still in the middle of renovations, and some of the stands are still unusable. However, the club has done its best to allow as many supporters in as possible for the big game. With the away goal rule no longer into play, it won’t matter as much that they failed to find the back of the net at the Parc des Princes in the first leg.
