On Sunday, August 19, took place a match of the first round of the championship of Spain between “Real Madrid” and “Getafe.” According to goal.com a record low number of fans came to this game.
The total capacity of the stadium “Santiago Bernabeu” is 85 454 seats, but this time the stadium’s tribunes were half empty – only 48 446 of people came to the match. This figure is the lowest in the history of the Royal Club over the last 10 years. Such a low turnout is most likely connected with Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Juventus in this July.
The last time such situation happened in the game of the season 2008/09, when “Real” lost to “Mallorca” with a score of 1: 3.
At the same time, it is noted that the time of the match could have also played a role – 22:15 local time. Real Madrid beat Getafe 2-0.
We recall that Ronaldo moved to Juventus on July 10. The Portuguese has spent 9 years in the Royal Club, winning numerous trophies with his team, including the title of the four-time winner of the Champions League.
