‘It’s full of Real Madrid fans’ – Madridistas explore Old Trafford

At lunchtime on Wednesday, @defcentral on X.com posted a video of jubilant Real Madrid fans singing and waving flags inside Old Trafford. The post read, “Madridistas en Old Trafford! La case den gran rival del Manchester City.” This translates to “Real Madrid fans at Old Trafford! The home of Manchester City’s main rival.”

It looks like the Madrid fans took in all aspects of Old Trafford, with numerous supporters spotted in the United museum. Prominent Manchester United journalist, Andy Mitten, also posted, “Been in Old Trafford’s museum – it’s full of travelling Real Madrid fans.”

Champions of Europe vs Champions League specialists

Madrid fans will be hoping for another memorable European night as they look to move a step closer to securing their 15th European Cup/Champions League triumph. Carlo Ancelotti’s side drew the home leg against City 3-3 and will be looking to exact revenge after last year’s humiliating semi-final defeat to the same opposition.
