Manchester United Vs. Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League 2013: 3,500 Real Madrid Fans Travel To Old Trafford

Real Madrid fans will take the Old Trafford this Tuesday. More than 3,500 fans are expected to fill the visitors' stand to support Mourinho's team in the game that could define Real Madrid's season.

This morning, more than 200 Real Madrid fans left Spain's capital on their road to Manchester. They'll be joining approximately another 3,000 Spaniards that will try to help the team on their way to the Champions League Quarterfinals.

That would be a huge number of fans for a club that doesn't get that kind of support on the road. Normally, only 200 or 300 fans go with the team to cities like Getafe or Vallecas, really close to Madrid. But the madridismo has realized this is a huge game in which the team needs full support, just like United fans also took Madrid in the first leg played at the Bernabéu.
