After a generational campaing during 2021/22, Vinicius Jr. has found it difficult to maintain similar stocks this season around.

Despite that, though, he has six goals and three assists in 17 games in the league, and remains Madrid’s second-most prolific contributor in terms of goal contributions.

His importance to Carlo Ancelotti’s side cannot be understated. And with Los Blancos trailing Barcelona by six points right now, the next few fixtures become all-the-more important.

Madrid take on Real Sociedad tomorrow night in a second vs third fixture, but the spotlight will be on Vinicius, who is on four yellow cards in the league right now. Another booking tomorrow could see him miss the clash against Valencia on Thurdsday.

Should Vini pick up another yellow card this season, it would be his second season in a row with a suspension. He picked up six yellows last season, but has already racked up four this season, averaging one every four games.

The Brazilian has the highest number of bookings in the Madrid squad, with Luka Modric, Daniel Carvajal, David Alaba, and Eduardo Camavinga trailing him with three each.

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.
