I am no football fan but this has to be written anyway. Here on Cyprus people are crazy for football and tonight’s match has been on the discussion for a long time; the match between the giant Real Madrid and Nicosia’s APOEL.
Nicosia already had a match against Real Madrid in 1969, but then in Real’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium. This time the match is on Cypriot land with a maximum of 12 000 spectators in the stadium comparing to Santiago Bernabeu’s maximum of 125 000.
Riots after football matches are common here on Cyprus, as everywhere else, so let’s see what tonight’s match will result in.
