Real Madrid team bus involved in accident in Germany on way to RB Leipzig Champions League clash

A bus carrying Real Madrid’s first team squad to its hotel for a Champions League last 16 first leg clash with RB Leipzig suffered an accident on Monday.

The LaLiga giants are travelling to Germany for their round of 16 clash on Tuesday night.

The Real Madrid squad landed in Erfurt, Germany this morning ahead of a 100-mile drive to their final destination.

The team had to fly to Erfurt rather than Leipzig due to a strike at Leipzig Airport

However, German newspaper Bild has reported that the bus was involved in a collision with a white Toyota on the A4 between Eichelborn and Nohra.

The car’s driver is said to have overlooked the bus while changing lanes and broke the exterior mirror.

It has been estimated that the cost of the damage to the Toyota is £2,560.

There was minimal damage to the Real Madrid bus with only some scratches visible on the driver’s side.

The collision did cause a brief stop to the team’s journey but after checking that everyone was okay and the bus was fine they continued on their way.

Real Madrid’s squad including the likes of Vinicius Jr and Federico Valverde were on board along with the technical staff.

The bus finally arrived at the team hotel Steigenberger in downtown Leipzig before 3pm.
