Inter will soon play in front of their biggest crowd since the Derby della Madonnina in February 2020 before Covid-19 became the serious issue we know it to be today, according to a report in the Italian print media.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, over 30,000 tickets have now been sold to Inter fans for the visit of Real Madrid for the first Champions League group game of the season.
It is expected that 35,000 Inter fans will be in attendance for the match at San Siro, with another 2000 tickets available to any Real Madrid fans who are willing to make the trip despite complicated Covid-19 protocols that fans must follow.
It is the biggest crowd Inter have played in front of since 9th February 2020, when the Nerazzurri came from 2-0 down to beat Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan 4-2.
The following home game against Sampdoria was cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
