After his first practice session in Madrid earlier today, Rafael Nadal and some members of his team decided to spend the free night by watching a football match. They took in Atletico Madrid’s Europa League semi-final clash against Arsenal.
After a 1-1 draw in the first leg at the Emirates a week ago, it was a Diego Costa goal late in the first half that sent the Spanish team through with a 1-0 victory.
Our champ made an appearance for the game despite being an avid supporter of Real Madrid. Here are a few photos.
