Official: Real Madrid-Red Star suspended tonight


Filomena’s ravages are still noticeable in Madrid. Its inhabitants still have problems to develop a normal life due to the low temperatures of the last hours that are transforming the snow that fell at the weekend into ice sheets throughout the city. Barajas airport, which managed to open after the storm, it is recovering its activity little by little, with much fewer departures and arrivals than usual and with flights delayed for hours and even days due to the ice sheets on some runways.

This situation will prevent the Real Madrid game from being played tonight, which was scheduled for 9:00 p.m. In a double-day Euroleague week, the Whites received the Red Star at the WiZink Center, but the Serbian team has not been able to reach Madrid. In fact, it has not even taken off in Belgrade, since it did not have permission to land in Barajas. The news has been advanced by the journalist Carlos Sánchez Blas in Onda Madrid and now we have to wait for the Euroleague to set a new date for the match. The competition has announced in a statement that it will study “with both teams the possible options to play the game, taking into account the free dates and the viability of production of televisions with broadcasting rights.”

Real Madrid’s next game is on Friday in Israel against Maccabi in Tel Aviv. The logical thing is that they fly tomorrow Thursday, although depending on the availability in Barajas they could have to delay it until Friday. Currently there are two open terminals of the four that the Madrid airport has: T1 and T4, in addition to its satellite terminal, T4S.

Barajas gradually recovers its flights Several excavators from the Military Emergency Unit (UME) are working to remove snow and ice from the runway at Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport, in Madrid (Spain), on January 12, 2021. Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport connections continue to suffer cancellations this Tuesday due to the effects of the storm Filomena, which has affected the Madrid airfield, although activity is gradually recovering. Thus, Iberia will operate on Tuesday the nine scheduled long-haul flights and half of the scheduled long-haul flights and half of those scheduled in its short and medium-haul network to connect Madrid with the rest of Spain and Europe.
