Champions League and Europa League (18-24 Oct)

Wednesday 20 October 2010 12:00

Yesterday Real Madrid won over AC Milan, his fourth consecutive victory in the Champions League. A good match where the team from Madrid took revenge on last year’s defeat, when AC Milan won at Santiago Bernabeu, 2-3. Mourinho was confident, and looks like this may be their year.

Also, today we will see Barça play against Kobenhavn without Milito, who is injured. Kobenhavn, Group D’s leader, hasn’t played before on the Camp Nou, but has managed to win over greater teams such as Rubin Kazan or Panathinaikos. The doubt now is wether they’ll be able to win in Barcelona too.

And let’s not forget the UEFA Europe League, because tomorrow Atletico faces Rosenborg, and needs a victory. Atletico’s manager admits his team doesn’t know much about the Norwegian team, but they’ll do their best.

Anyway, remember that if you want tickets to see any major football events played in Spain, our web is the web you’re looking for. Enjoy these days of pure football!

Vicente Calderón, Atletico de Madrid’s stadium

Monday 18 October 2010 12:43

As promised, today we’ll sum up for you a bit of Vicente Caderon stadium’s history and trivia. Enjoy!

The stadium is located in Madrid, in Arganzuela district. It was the first in Spain to become a “5 star rated stadium”, and it’s been so since 2003. It’s Atletico de Madrid’s official stadium.

When it was built, back in 1966, there were seats for 62.000 people. The first game ever played there ended in a tie to 1 against Valencia CF. At the time, it was called Manzanares Stadium, because of the river. However, in 1971 the name was changed to Vicente Calderon to honor the president.

These may be Vicente Calderon’s last years. The club wants to build a new, bigger stadium, called Estadio de la Peineta, that will be ready in three years, tops. Then, the Vicente Calderon will be turned into a park. The fans aren’t very happy with the idea, but the club argues that the current location is too close to the river.

Now, a bit of trivia: the stadium was closed by the UEFA for two games, in punishment for the incident between Atletico’s fans and Olympique de Marsella’s fans the 1st of October 2008.

You can get to the stadium using the 17, 18, 23, 34, 35, 36, 50, 116, 118 or 119 bus line, or stepping down at Piramides, the L-5 underground station.

Spanish League – Round 7

Friday 15 October 2010 12:25

This weekend is really promising. First of all, everybody is looking forward to Barça – Valencia. The physicists have already confirmed that Villa’s injury won’t keep him from playing, and that means he’ll be able to face the team where he spent five years. His former team, Valencia, isn’t scared, and trusts the possibility of scoring as soon as possible. However, both teams have many players that won’t be able to step on the field, so everything can happen.

Also, there is Atletico de Madrid – Getafe. While Atletico de Madrid mourns Arteche, a former football player and one of the most well-known scorers in the 80’s, Getafe is eager to start the game. As said by their manager, “this is the first serious match we’ll have”.

And we can’t forget to mention Mallorca – Espanyol, mostly because this may be the match that breaks Mallorca’s invincible streak. This season, the team hasn’t been defeated yet, nor has anybody put a single goal on them at home. Both teams are well-balanced; it’s hard to pick a winner.

Remember that if you want tickets to see any major football events played in Spain, our web is the perfect choice. Enjoy the weekend, see you on Monday!

Real Madrid has also won many times (31), being the team with more League awards. Five of them are permanently displayed at the museum of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

Atletico de Madrid is one of the most well-known teams in Spain and in Europe, since it is the current UEFA champion. The team has also won the League 9 times, the last one in 1996.

Mallorca was one of last year’s League best teams, and the fifth on the final classification, but has not won a League trophy yet. Espanyol, the last but not the least, has not won the Liga either. This may be their year! What do you think?
