No spectators at Borussia Mönchengladbach-Real Madrid

The Borussia Mönchengladbach-Real Madrid duel this Tuesday, on the second day of the group stage of the Champions League, will be played without an audience in the stands, the German club reported in a statement..

Until now, it was expected that there would be a symbolic presence of 300 spectators in the stands, after, due to the increase in cases of coronavirus in the region, the initial intention of playing with 20 percent of the capacity could not be maintained., which is equivalent to about 10,000 viewers.

The 10,804 tickets were sold, but the health authorities revoked the initial authorization due to the increase in infections.

However, in the end not even that handful of spectators – who had won the right to enter a raffle – will have access to the state, after Mönchengladbach reached an incidence of 94.2 weekly infections per 100,000 inhabitants.
