Vinicius Junior’s red card is dismissed in La Liga
Vinicius Junior’s red card was controversial.
Now it is deleted.
The competition committee refers to an extraordinary circumstance.
Real Madrid’s Brazilian star Vinicius Junior were subjected to racism from the stands in the away match with Valencia. The 22-year-old was then sent off after a VAR review of a foul.
Now the competition committee, consisting of representatives from La Liga and the Spanish Football Federation, the red card, reports March.
Ready for the derby
Vinicius Junior escapes suspension and is ready for the Madrid derby against Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday.
The decision is based on “there is an extraordinary, serious and very unusual circumstance”.
Vinicius Junior’s hand went up in Valencia player Hugo Duro’s face during the brawl, but after the match the VAR room has been questioned for the decision to only allow the match referee to review that particular incident and not the whole brawl where it took place.
Empty stands and fines
Yesterday it was reported that VAR referee Nacho Iglesias Villanueva gets fired after the season.
Valencia is also punished with half a million kroner in fines and games in front of partially closed stands due to the racist attacks.
