I am a Barcelona fan and unfortunately this classico will be in Madrid. The ticket prices are completely out of my budget, as much as i want to go i know that i won't be able to buy a ticket haha :( unless i get lucky I know that every bar will show the game in Madrid but is there any place where me as a Barca fan can go and feel safe in merengue territory? haha I will be traveling alone for 2 weeks and finish my trip in Madrid. Thanks!

There is no Barca fan club in Madrid, but you are welcome and safe to watch the game in any pubs. If I were you search a pub where Atletico fans only to avoid any troubles. .:)

How will anyone know you are a Barca fan?

I think the shouting and cheering might give it away, regardless of wearing a Barca shirt or not.

Exactly! As for being inconspicuous, surely part of being a fan is getting caught up in the atmosphere and excitement.
