Ronaldo: Real Madrid record lowest fans’ turnout in 10 years

Real Madrid fans are surely yet to get over the exit of their former star and Ballon d’Or holder, Cristiano Ronaldo as they snubbed their team’s match against Getafe on Sunday.

Although Madrid won their opening match of the season against Getafe, the attendance was in its all-time lowest in the last decade.

Goals apiece from Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale granted the Los Blancos side a deserved win.

Just a paltry 48, 466 people were on ground to watch the opening game.

The last time Real Madrid played in front of such a meagre Santiago Bernabeu fans was the last home game of the 2008/2009 season, which came during a five-game losing streak that began by the historic 6-2 Clasico defeat to Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona.

Immediately after the season, Real broke the transfer record to land Ronaldo from Manchester United.

After Ronaldo’s exit to Juventus in July, fans snubbed their first home game of the season as the Portuguese’s shadow cast large over the empty seats in Santiago Bernabeu.
