Tonight's clash with Dinamo Zagre is Real Madrid's 1,500th official clash at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
The stadium was inaugurated on 14 December 1947. It was then known as Chamartin and officially named Estadio del Real Madrid Club de Futbol (Real Madrid Football Club Stadium). The first opponent to play there was Portuguese side Os Beleneses in a friendly. Real Madrid defeated them 3-1 and the match proved to be a real crowd pleaser.
The first official enocunter held at the stadium was the 28 December 1947 league match with Athletic Bilbao, which the Whites won 5-1.
