IE Football Club: Online Auction takes you to Santiago Bernabéu – by Luca del Dottore

I participated in the bid for the first time last week and I have been so lucky! I want to thank the IE Football Club for giving me the chance to enjoy a really great game.

Real Madrid were incredibly 6-1 up at home to Real Betis at half-time after the incredible 45 opening minutes. In fact, all seven goals were scored before the break, with captain Raul and Huntelaar both scoring braces for Madrid to add to further efforts from team-mates Higuain and Sergio Ramos.

«El Madrid» moved within seven points of Barcelona and took another chunk out of historical rivals’ lead at the top of the Liga table. Now that the Liga is open again to all possible final results, the remaining games are going to be even more exciting. 

Before last Saturday I had only dreamed of sitting at magnificent Bernabeu Stadium. It is by far the most emblematic stadium I have ever visited: its unparalleled atmosphere make it the Europe’s most spectacular footballing stage.

 

Here is a picture of the team celebrating after a goal (I don’t remember which one of the six!)
