Real Madrid continued their inch-perfect start to the league season when they swept aside RCD Mallorca 4-1 at Santiago Bernabeu this past weekend.

The reigning Spanish champions had started the game slowly, drawing 1-1 at half-time. But they gained momentum thanks to a brilliant equaliser from Federico Valverde, before a strong second-half showing that saw them bag three goals.

One of the protagonists behind their improved performance in the second half was Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian international effortlessly beat Mallorca’s deep block, eventually scoring the winner in the 72nd minute.

However, apart from scoring the all-important goal, Vinicius was not afraid to showboat either, showcasing his skills on the ball and probing the opposition defenders at every chance.

That said, the Brazilian was subjected to intense pressure due to his showboating skills. According to Javier Herraez, the RCD Mallorca bench was taunting the winger, chanting: “Party boy, party boy”.

The bench also urged Mallorca defenders to put up strong challenges on Vinicius, shouting: “Break him, break him”.

However, that did not deter Vinicius from causing all sorts of menace to the opposition defenders. His sheer pace and trickery out wide made life difficult for the Mallorca backline, who ultimately had to succumb to pressure and give away three late goals.

In the end, Real Madrid were able to secure a comfortable 4-1 victory, which helped them maintain their hundred percent winning record in La Liga. Thanks to the win, Real Madrid have also maintained their two-point lead over FC Barcelona at the top of the league table.

Up next, Real Madrid are set to welcome RB Leipzig on the second matchday in the UEFA Champions League. The reigning European champions had started the season with a 3-0 win over Celtic, and another win could go a long way in helping them gain an early headstart.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
