But there's one supporter inside the ground in the shape of Vicente Navarro who was immortalised as a statue following his tragic death in 2017.

Navarro had his season ticket for years despite going blind in his 50s, but he kept his season ticket because he wanted to feel the atmosphere at the games.

And when he passed away, the club put a statue of him in his seat so he would forever be at Valencia's matches.

Tonight, his statue is the club's only spectator.
