Real Madrid To Play Remaining Games Away From Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid To Play Remaining Games Away From Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid are to play their remaining home games away from the Santiago Bernabeu when football does eventually return.

Los Blancos are temporarily moving to the Alfredo di Stefano stadium - where the club's Castilla outfit play their home games - as they look to make significant developments to the iconic Bernabeu.

With La Liga fixtures being played behind closed doors once football returns, Real see it as a perfect opportunity to get ahead of themselves with work on the expansion right through to September.

In regards to the Bernabeu, some serious renovation is underway as Real look to update the dated design and give it a new lease of life.
