However, after several months of hosting their home matches at their training ground, Madrid will make a return to the Bernabeu stadium next weekend (September 12) in a crunch La Liga tie against Celta Vigo.
This development will come as a positive advantage to Carlo Ancelotti and his side in their push to reclaim the La Liga title at the end of the season. Real Madrid have a reputation of not losing too many matches in their iconic stadium. This factor has played a major role in their trail of successes over the years, both in the Spanish La Liga and on the European stage.
With the return of fans to stadiums this season, Real Madrid will have have the 12th man advantage once again this year. The Santiago Bernabeu can accommodate over 80,000 fans who will be cheering them on to victory during their home games.
Carlo Ancelotti is on a mission to reclaim the La Liga trophy which the club lost out to cross city rivals - Atletico Madrid last term. They have started their title challenge on a good note as they sit at the top of the table with two wins and a draw from their opening three games.
Real Madrid are strong favorites to win the league this season. The addition of Eduardo Camavinga this summer has boosted their chances as they now have the squad depth to challenge on all fronts this season.
A return to the Santiago Bernabeu is a very healthy development for their ambitions this season and the home advantage they will enjoy might see them win the La Liga trophy for the 35th time in their history.
