Real Madrid for real

Being in Madrid during a game of Real Madrid means I “had to” take my son to the game. I rather dreaded the evening but it ended up being quite smooth and cool with no real tension from the surrounding crowd. (The most extreme fans were parked far far away!)

Real Madrid was playing against Getaffe (which incidentally is the suburb of Madrid where Universidad Carlos III is located, a place where I taught Monte Carlo Statistical Method last time I came to Madrid!). The two teams looked (to me) rather unevenly matched, judging from the number of balls recovered by Real Madrid during the game, which ended up as 2-0 in favour of Real Madrid.  This despite a red card expulsion of one Real player after a dozen minutes or so in the game…
