Real Madrid had a put a 30-euro mark up on the standard 45-euro ticket for the Copa clash, with prices reaching 265 euros for better views from the side of the pitch. But the inflated ticket prices have not stopped the eagerly anticipated event selling out two days ahead of time.

On ticket exchange website, StubHub, prices of ticket resales currently range from 135 euros for the lowest grade seats (60 euros more than the standard price at the ticket desk) to 1,500 euros for a spot in the premium sections. The most expensive tickets available on StubHub will set a fan back 5,000 euros.
