‘Vandals Slashed The Wires’ – Real Madrid’s Game Against Rayo Vallecano Postponed Due To Floodlight Sabotage

By Chris Wright

Real Madrid’s game away against cross-city rivals Rayo Vallecano has been forcibly postponed until Monday night after vandals sabotaged the power supply to the floodlights at the Estadio de Vallecas on Sunday evening.

The players were left skulking around on the half-illuminated pitch while technicians attempted to first suss out the cause of the floodlight failure and then try to reconnect the lighting, though the decision to reschedule the match was made around about the 10:00pm mark after it became clear that the damage could not be repaired on the night.

Was Cristiano Ronaldo impressed?

No, Cristiano Ronaldo was not impressed.

Rayo Vallecano president Raul Martin Presa last night told the Spanish media that the club are under the impression that an act of sabotage had taken place: “Vandals have slashed the wires. The police are investigating the incident.”

Real Madrid have since requested that the game be played during daylight hours to avoid a repeat of the ‘deplorable events’ that stymied the first whirl, but the club have announced that the LFP have decreed that the match will again be played at 19:45pm.

What could possibly go wrong?

Oh yeah, the floodlights.
