Pics & Videos of my experience watching RM vs Man U at the Bernabeu - Chanting in the streets & more!!

Hello every one, I'm a bit late posting this but better late than never! I made my first trip to Madrid last week to watch Real Madrid vs Manchester United in the CL at the Bernabeu, and I have to say it was one of the best experiences of my entire life! Firstly Madrid is an AMAZING city, I would have had the time of my life even if I didn't go to the game. The people are some of the nicest, most friendly, and most helpful people I have ever dealt with in any city! The food is amazing, the night life is amazing, the whole atmosphere of the city is great, highly recommend visiting Madrid!

On to the futbol... Firstly I must say that as annoying as they were the Man U fans were pretty awesome and made their presence felt both in the city and at the game. They weren't actually annoying but the constant chanting they did in the streets the days leading up to the game started to eventually get a bit "obnoxious" for lack of a better word. We were in Madrid after all you don't want opposition having too much fun! But overall they were extremely passionate and some pretty cool folks. They were fairly loud at the game as well but would be quickly drowned out by whistles thankfully! Below I'm going to post some pictures & videos from the game, as well as a tour I did of the stadium. Hope you guys enjoy!

Some quick notes about the game:

-Firstly the atmosphere was amazing! The Ultras were amazing, providing much needed energy after Man U's goal!

-Secondly the game goes by 5x faster when watching in person, it happened too fast.

-Watching the game in person gives such a different insight to how the game was played. Madrid dominated the game, Di Maria played great (we know he works hard, but seeing it person is more impressive), Ronaldo of course with the amazing goal... But I must admit watching Mesut Ozil play in person was mind blowing, his skill, vision, and touch was breath taking. He also covered a lot of ground, he tracked up and down the pitch all game, more than I think many people may realize.

-The Man U player I was most impressed with was Van Persie. He played with extreme confidence in most cases and dribbled very well and was hard to mark. Although that ball he mishit that almost rolled into the goal was fortunate for us, thankfully it didn't go in!!!

-Madrid are the better team clearly, we dominated that game and should have won. I'm confident for the 2nd leg and hopefully we advance!

¡HALA MADRID!
