Real Madrid back Vinicius after racist criticism

[ad_1]

Real Madrid beat Rayo Vallecano 2-1 thanks to goals from star players Karim Benzema and Rodrigo. Madrid players wore number 20 T-shirts at the match in support of teammate Vinicius Junior, who was the victim of a racial slur last week. Meanwhile, the spectators also cheered Vinicius. After Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to Valencia last Sunday, some supporters hurled racial slurs at Vinicius. In the match, the captains of both the teams also wrote slogans on the arm strips in protest against the racial slurs. Real Madrid is second in the points table with 74 points. They are two points ahead of third-placed Atlético Madrid and 11 behind defending champions Barcelona at the top. With two matches to go, Real Madrid’s chances of holding on to the first position are slim.
