Atletico Madrid Barcelona UEFA Champions Tickets – Real Madrid and FC Barcelona
With Real Madrid FC and FC Barcelona fighting it out with Atletico Madrid at the top of the Spanish Liga the excitement is building to fever pitch. And to add even more excitement, FC Barcelona will face Atletico Madrid in the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Champions League. There is now only one point separating the top three after Barcelona’s stunning 3-4 victory at the Bernabeu Stadium.
Ahead of this year’s fixture, the world’s sexiest and most appealling football match, El Clasico, Real Madrid Barcelona, will be played out in front of 95,000 “loco” fans, on 23rd March at the Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid. And judging from the stats it could go either way!
With injury doubts over Messi and Neymar for FC Barcelona, some moves expected in the transfer window before the match, and now the departure of Barcelona President Sandro Rosell under a cloud, the game has attained its usual almost unbearable frisson of heart-stopping excitement and tension. Barcelona’s recent lull (dropping seven points with a two defeats and a draw) has made the game even more important to both sides for their points tally.

A more tantalising UEFA quarter final could not be imagined. Atletico are the sensation of the season with Arda and Costa supplying world class touches and goals.

How to buy tickets for Real Madrid Atletico Barcelona.
It will be no surprise to learn that all tickets are already sold out for this match. Socios (season ticket holders) and supporters clubs will of course take up their full allocations as ever. So, although the face value of tickets for Real Madrid Barcelona is from 70 euros up to 250 euros approximately, be ready to pay 5-10 times that much. The trick then is to find someone, like a Real Madrid supporter (or someone in his family) who may be indisposed on the day of the match (or away harvesting olives or oranges on his family’ s finca somewhere near Toledo or Jaen..) who will hand over his member’s card or supporters club seat to little old you (for a consideration).
Is this permitted by Real Madrid? The good news about football in Spain is that clubs belong to their members, i.e. this guy has the final say over whose bum will be on his seat without interference. It is therefore common for members to invite others to use their seats. Communal Spain works like this in many facets of life, and the system keeps everyone happy. You have to be in the right group at the right time and once you’re in, you are in. The good news is that it is all done with considerable good humour and a friendly spirit. So although someone else may have the first claim or “ownership” to a seat, they can still let you have it !
