In their first encounter of the season way back in September, Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr was subjected to racial abuse from a section of the Atletico fanbase. Some supporters even held up a racist doll of the Brazilian as they taunted him from the stands.
Now a dummy wearing his jersey was found hanging from a bridge and it was presumed that it was put there by Atletico fans under the same pretences.
Realmente es repudiable esta actitud de los fanáticos, no es una rivalidad sana es puro racismo.
