The prolegomena of the Madrid derby that played the Atlético de Madrid and the Real
Madrid at Wanda
Metropolitan they were very symbolic.

The mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida and the number 1 partner of
Atlético de Madrid, Pedro Palmero
, did the kick-off of the derby in the Metropolitan Wanda, as an act of tribute to all Madrid football fans who have not been able to attend a football match for a year. The league and whose voices sounded in the rojiblanco anthem.

José Luis Martínez-Almeida, faithful follower of Atlético de Madrid, greeted and wished the captains luck Koke Resurrection and Karim Benzema and the derby officials, before starring in a special moment that has touched the hearts of the fans. The politician scored a Koke, we could say, with that gesture that the mattress captain had at the Bernabéu, after winning the Cup King in 2013, and kissing a flag with the shield of the Athletic on the grass.

In his case, the Madrilenian politician, while retiring to the changing room tunnel to access his place in the honor box, stood next to the shield that is painted on the lawn of the mattress coliseum, bent down and kissed it. An action that has gone viral and that the mattress fans liked.


The voice of the fans of Atlético de Madrid it sounded in the anthem that the club modified as a tribute to the great absentees of the derby, with a version in which thousands of fans joined in the same song that accompanied the teams on their way out to the pitch.

The Metropolitan Wanda is being one of the vaccination points of the capital against COVID19 since last Thursday, February 25, with a device deployed by the Madrid’s community.
