With still over two weeks to go before Real Madrid face Napoli in the 2016/17 Champions League quarter final first leg, anticipation is building in the Italian city as fans plan their trips to the Spanish capital.
10,000 travelling 'tifosi'
The Serie A side have been allocated 3,197 match tickets (priced between 65-80 euro) but already 10,000 "tifosi" have booked flights to Madrid with many hoping to pick up tickets on the second-hand ticket market.
The Real Madrid official website has already posted information for visiting fans on February 15 and has advised Italian supporters not to purchase tickets from unofficial channels and that visiting supporters may be denied entrance to the ground.
Tickets are already reselling for prices of up to 300 euro with the travelling contingent anxious to see their side in action at one of global football's iconic stadia.
