Spanish club Rayo Vallecano have generously decided to offer specially discounted tickets to unemployed fans for tomorrow's La Liga clash with Real Madrid.
Rayo have made 1,000 tickets available for €5 in a bid to help club members affected by the financial crisis in Spain, where the jobless rate of those aged between 20 and 29 is 39pc.
Regular ticket prices for club member usually range between €20 and €25 but the club hopes to fill out its Vallecas Stadium with the help of these reduced prices.
They'll need every help they can get against their cross-city rivals, with Real winning their last eight away games.
