As Real Madrid get set to take on CA Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final on May 6 at Estadio de La Cartuja, manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed the squad list that he will be taking along for the trip to Seville.

And, surprisingly, the manager has decided to call up all his players for the final against Osasuna on Saturday night.

Indeed, the injured Real Madrid trio of Luka Modric, David Alaba, and Ferland Mendy have all been named in the squad that will be travelling to Seville for the game.

Alaba and Modric have resumed team training this week and could be in contention to play some part against Osasuna on Saturday.

As for Mendy, he returned to the pitch for the time after his injury against Liverpool. Given that he is yet to resume training with the ball, it seems unlikely that he will play a part against Osasuna.

Youngsters like Sergio Arribas, Nico Paz, and Alvaro Rodriguez, who were all part of the squad against Real Sociedad earlier this week, have not been called up by Ancelotti for the Copa del Rey final.

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.
