The Real Madrid squad is shaping up nicely this season. Three months into the new season, there appears to be a solid core in the starting eleven and coach Carlo Ancelotti has not had to conduct many experiments, in regard to his team selection.

While starters such as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Vinicius, David Alaba and even new signing Aurelien Tchouameni have continued to impress, the reserves have also established themselves as useful options.

According to Diario AS, two players, in particular, have impressed the Real Madrid coaching team with their performances from the bench, and they are Marco Asensio and Eduardo Camavinga.

Asensio, who has endured a rapid fall from grace in recent times, is far from being an established starter in the Real Madrid squad. However, the Spaniard has made an impression with his recent cameos, notably scoring against Elche earlier this week.

Camavinga, on the other hand, joined Real Madrid last year. Although the youngster has not established himself as a first-team regular, he has performed well whenever called upon, often offering the energy and spark in the middle of the park.

In the season so far, Camavinga has featured in ten league matches. Although only four of those have been starts, the Frenchman has fared well and has appeared as a reliable option for coach Ancelotti.

In light of Asensio and Camavinga’s good performances, Ancelotti may even consider the possibility of improving their roles in the team. It could lead to more starts for both players – a plan that might be implemented after the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Asensio’s return to prominence could prove to be useful in the Spaniard’s bid to earn a new contract at Real Madrid or join a new club in the near future while Camavinga’s bigger role in the team could only help Real Madrid fasten the transition in the midfield unit, especially with Modric and Kroos having their contracts expire at the end of the season.

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.
