The Wanda Metropolitano's two stands are already full for the Champions League match that Atletico Madrid will play against Liverpool on 19th October. Ticket sales are being a success and it is enough to take a look at the website of the red and white club to check it out.
At almost 22:00 on 9th October, there are less than 600 tickets out of the 20,000 that the local club originally put on sale. With ten days to go until the event, this is a very high rate that anticipates a full house. Cholo Simeone's side need the support of their fans to win.
The end of the restrictions concerning the coronavirus has played a key role in allowing the stadium to fill to capacity. A few months ago, it would have been impossible no matter how hard the fans pushed because, in accordance with the regulations of the regional governments, certain attendance limits had to be met in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The match between Atletico and Liverpool will also appeal to the neutral spectator. It pits the first and second placed teams in Champions League Group B against each other. With Porto three points behind and a Milan side in poor form, who have lost both of their games, the reds and whites will be in the spotlight.
