Wouldn't surprise me. I recall Balague mentioning in a blog one time that in Spain its seen to be pointless to travel to away games, with most fans only focusing on home games. Think they made a big deal out of Sporting Gijon taking 2,000 to a big away game and it representing something unusual.
Only time I've ever recalled seeing a sizeable Madrid following was at Anfield and even then by all accounts most of it was made up of tourists/local foreigners than actual travelling Spaniards.
