Real Madrid have a chance to do a European double tonight when they lock horns against Europa League champions from the 2022/23 season Eintracht Frankfurt. The two sides will meet at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in Finland for the encounter.

As is tradition, Madrid have released their starting lineup early in the evening. It is rather straightforward, too, as many had already expected.

Thibaut Courtois starts in goal for Los Blancos, while David Alaba and Eder Militao guard him as the centre-backs. They are flanked by none other than Ferland Mendy as the left-back, and Daniel Carvajal on the right.

Aurilien Tchouameni will not be handed his official debut from the get-go tonight as Casemiro takes his place as the defensive midfielder. Toni Kroos and Luka Modric complete the Bermuda Triangle in the middle of the park.

In attack, we have captain Karim Benzema spearheading the trident, with Vinicius Jr. and Federico Valverde on the left and right flank, respectively.

Confirmed Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius

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.
