Vinicius Junior doesn’t get banned – but the supporters do | La Liga
Vinicius Junior took center stage as Real Madrid fell to Valencia on Sunday. The Brazilian star was exposed to racism from the stands – something that has created great debate in the football world and condemned from several quarters.
Vinicius was sent off at the same time, after punching Valencia’s Hugo Duro in the face. The fight was provoked by Duro grabbing Vinicius in an earlier sequence. A sequence that the VAR room played for the referee.
Now the red card is removed, the La Liga competition committee announced on Tuesday evening according to March.
The fans are punished
Thus, Vinicius avoids suspension and can play Wednesday’s match against Rayo Vallecano.
In addition, parts of Valencia’s home stands are closed for five matches and Valencia is forced to pay over half a million kroner in fines, due to the racist attacks.
