The Spanish capital's two clubs have streets named after them in the Carabanchel - and one of them even boasts 'Ramos Plumbers'...
Gremio-Lanús live online

Tonight, Madrid will be the capital of European football, and the city's southern Carabanchel district may just well be its own particular geometric centre. The Puerta Bonita ward of the southern Carabanchel district (Postal Code 28025), you will find Real Madrid Street and Atlético de Madrid Street. The city council named the two streets after the capital's two principal clubs back in 1965.

Madrid's humble suburb has streets named after its two most famous clubs

Between Upper and Lower Carabanchel, one of Madrid's working class districts, Calle del Atlético de Madrid and Calle del Real Madrid cross each other. It is a very humble neighbourhood with buildings of no higher than four storeys dating back more than half a century. The demographic in this part of the city is largely pensioners and immigrants.

Neighbours on Real Madrid street and Atlético Street

“I'm an Atleti fan, but I love taking my rubbish out and putting it in the bins on Calle del Real Madrid”, one of the neighbours told AS, pointing to the wheelie bins near No.20 C/Real Madrid in front of the Washi gym. “We have around 200 clients coming to the gym who support either Madrid or Atleti”, the owner explained. Calle Real Madrid boasts more services than the neighbouring rojiblanco thoroughfare. At No.9 there is Ramos Plumbers. “Here, we stay open until minute 93”, chuckled one of the customers. “My husband is a diehard Madrid fan and he loves the fact that he has Real Madrid Street on his business card”, Ana tells us. We continue our journey across Plaza de Los Navarros, to a tobacconist at No.11, where we are informed, diplomatically, “We don't really like football...”

Football Crazy city

Atlético Street has a law firm and a chemists but incredibly, for a city which is absolutely football crazy, neither Madrid Street nor Atleti Street has a bar... Meanwhile, on matchday,the real, live action takes place 4.6km away at the Calderón, and 10.6km away at the Bernabéu.
