section of Real Madrid home stadium, The Santiago Beenabeu has been gutted by fire.
The fire broke out at part of the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night, in a part of the stadium where redevelopment work is ongoing
Real Madrid haven’t been able to play at their famous stadium all season as it has been undergoing work for around a year now.
On Wednesday night, footage from the Spanish capital showed smoke coming from the stadium, near some scaffolding, and fire could be spotted from inside the ground.
Marca said that the smoke coming from the columns at the stadium could be seen from various parts around the city.
Instead of playing their games at the Bernabeu, Real played their games this season at their training pitch at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, where the reserve team normally play.
It hasn’t been too much of a problem, with no fans allowed in grounds anyway because of Covid-19, although Jurgen Klopp wasn’t happy for his side to play there in the Champions League.
The cause of the first has not been ascertained as Real Madrid are yet to issue official statement on the incident at the time of this report.
