Legia-Real Madrid, in an Empty Stadium

Legia-Real Madrid, in an Empty Stadium


Real Madrid will play the next 18th of November their third match in the Champions League against KP Legia Warsaw in Santiago Bernabéu. Los Blancos will try to win after the draw in the second game against Borussia Dortmund in the Signal Iduna Park. It´s the easiest match Los Blancos will play in the group stage because they will play at home and against the weakest team of the group.

After that game, Los Blancos have to visit Warsaw and the match will be played behind closed doors. UEFA have considered that this match, the fourth day of the group stage on November 2, will be played without supporters, although the decision can be appealed by the Polish club.

UEFA have sanction Legia Warsaw because in the first match of the group stage against Borussia Dortmund the Polish supporters didn’t have a good behaviour inside the stadium. The organization said that there was launching of flares and objecst inside the stadium, racist behaviours, very poor organization and file blocking stairs.

KP Legia Warsaw didn’t win any of their games in the Champions League. They lost 0-6 against Borussia Dortmund in the match they were sanctioned. The second game against Sporting Lisbon they also lost 2-0. If they want to have any chance to qualify for the next round or for reaching the third position, that qualifies for the European League, they must start winning games.

With this sanction, KP Legia Warsaw are the most affected because now they must face Real Madrid in an empty stadium. This situation is quite strange for the players that play at home because they don´t hear any noise of the supporters. These behaviors are punished always in the Champions League because is the competition that more supporters watch in the TV and they want to prohibit it at all costs.
