United have said they are expecting reds take get 3,800 tickets for next month’s trip to Madrid.
In an email, the club said tickets would cost £62.50 and £70.50 in the away end and there would be a small number of tickets in another block costing £157.
When applications open on January 7, fans will be able to choose which price range they want to get, picking a first and second preference.
We estimate that about 2,000 fans have got one credit and anywhere between 400 and 1,000 fans have bought tickets via Thomas Cook Sport.
If you consider that some of the TCS customers will have one credit and that not everyone with one credit will apply, it’s fair to say that anywhere between 600 and 2,000 tickets will be left over for those with no credits, though we think it will probably be around 1,200.
We are looking into whether Real Madrid is complying with UEFA rules which state away fans must pay the same as home fans with a comparable view.
Last season, Bilbao exploited a loophole in that process by giving their members a huge discount, whereas in reality, very few non-members bought tickets in the home end.
Reds Away wrote to UEFA asking them to close this rule and United are also campaigning to close the loophole too.
