Spectacular images as fans welcome Real Madrid squad to the Bernabeu

Ahead of the decisive Champions League clash with Juventus, Real Madrid fans turned out in their thousands, in the approaches to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid fans needed no reminding of just how important the game is tonight.

Thousands upon thousands surrounded the approaches to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, as the Real Madrid team bus arrived, ahead of the crucial Champions League match against Juventus.

When the team bus passed by, fans roared in song with their rendition of the 'Décima' anthem - Hala Madrid y nada mas - hopeful that Los Blancos can make a comeback against the Italian side.

The incentive couldn't be any bigger for Real Madrid, who have the opportunity to set up a European 'Clasico' in the final, with Barcelona having already booked their place in Berlin.

Given such a prospect, the Real Madrid fans also have an enormous tifo planned inside the stadium, and will certainly be roaring for their team, throughout the whole ninety minutes.

2-1 behind, but with a priceless away goal scored in Turin, the Bernabeu could once more play an important role, as Real Madrid look to overcome Juventus and reach their second consecutive final.
