Real Madrid have released the list of 20 players that will be in the squad for their upcoming La Liga encounter against Levante on Thursday night.

The newly-crowned La Liga champions will take on relegation battlers Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu but will have to make do without some of their regulars for the game.

Heading into the game, Los Blancos are once again set to be without defensive mainstay David Alaba, who is still sidelined due to an injury, while Dani Carvajal and Marco Asensio are also unavailable for the clash.

The same goes for Dani Ceballos and Gareth Bale, who have been training but are not fit enough to make the squad. Eden Hazard is also back in training but has not been included in the list by manager Carlo Ancelotti.

There are no major surprises, with young defender Gila getting a call-up, along with exciting midfield prospect Peter. Club captain Marcelo is also a notable absentee for Real Madrid.

Thibaut Courtois and Karim Benzema, who were not part of the starting XI against Atletico Madrid last time out, could feature here. Lucas Vazquez could start at right-back considering Carvajal has not made the squad.

FULL LIST:

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Fuidias
Defenders: Militao, Vallejo, Nacho, Mendy, Gila
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, Vazquez, Camavinga, Peter
Forwards: Benzema, Jovic, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Mariano

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.
