According to Relevo, the 4.0 magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale is the  second strongest in 40 years.

The Real Madrid players did not feel it as they are staying 9 kilometers from the epicenter.

Journalist Mirko Calemme reported that the earth tremor lasted for four seconds near the Diego Maradona stadium. In recent days they warned that there was a risk of some of the volcanoes erupting.

Real Madrid will face Napoli at the Diego Maradona Stadium on Tuesday night at 19:00 GMT, corresponding to matchday 2 of the 2023/2024 UEFA Champions League group stage.
