The visit of the Madrid It was an event in the state of Carinthia, who went out of his way to organize the event. The 3,129 spectators who came on Saturday to see the second home game of the newly promoted Austria Klagenfurt against him Hartberg on the Austrian Bundesliga they were multiplied by ten to give an atmosphere of old normality, vibrant despite being a friendly and the little spectacle that was seen on the lawn. The Wörthersee Stadion was filled to burst with 30,000 people and without a mask (wearing it anywhere in the city made you the center of attention), although with the requirement to present a negative test of COVID, a fundamental requirement to access many public places in Austria and that the fans could take place in the vicinity of the stadium before the game. An area where the food and drink stalls were open and where there was no shortage of street vendors for those who made a pretzel without leaving their town.
If the rhythm of the game fell, the public address raised the spirits. If anyone fell asleep, the wave woke them up. Having two teams from the Madrid entity at home and Milan It is not usual in these parts, where from the Euro 2008 (the new stadium was built for that tournament, which hosted after group stage matches) quench their thirst for football with games from the Austrian national team and summer friendlies by international teams. Because the pandemic deprived them of enjoying the surprising participation of the Wolsberger last season in the Europa League. The whites, for example, had only been seen once: just 30 years ago in a 2-5 against the local team in which they scored Luis Enrique, Prosinecki, Hagi, Mile Y Alfonso. This time only the goals were missing.
The Tifosi in Milan jerseys were in the majority around three hours before the game. The closeness to Italy It gave them, a priori, an advantage. But when the local public joined in and it was time for the final verdict, the decibels gave Madrid the victory of popular support. The loudspeaker reviewed the endless titles that the white club treasures in its record and allowed itself to be carried away so that the fans chanted the line-up that it had Ancelotti. The most patient took a souvenir home: after completing the homework that he gave Pintus at the end of the game, Vinicius he spent a good time taking photos and signing autographs for those who remained in the stands. The fans enjoy football and the Brazilian’s gestures.
