Real Madrid fans were clearly not happy with President Fiorentino Perez decision to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus last summer. The response was poor attendance since the season started.
For a stadium with a total capacity of 81, 044 fans, they have managed an average attendance of 64, 964 so far this season. The poor start has not helped their course but as we all know, another big signing might be on the way in January. The Los Blancos are 4th on the La Liga table, 5 points behind leaders Barcelona.
4. Man United- 74,490 Average Attendance
Manchester United fans continue to support the team despite another terrible season under Jose Mourinho. The Stadium average attendance so far this season stands at 74,490. This means only around 504 seats have been empty every time they play at home despite lack of wins. It is a support the coach and his players need to take seriously. The Red Devils are languishing in 6th place, 16 points behind their next opponent Liverpool.
3. Bayern Munich- 75,000 Average Attendance

Bayern Munich stadium Allianz Arena is 100% full every weekend so far this season. The Stadium total capacity is 75,000 and their average so far this season is the same. This means the fans are ready to stay behind Niko Kovac men despite a poor start to the season. The Bavarians are still 9 points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.
