Sunday night’s El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou was a feisty affair, as Clasicos usually tend to be more often than not.

Barça came out on top in what was a clutch victory that all but confirms their La Liga title triumph if they avoid a monumental slip-up in the remaining 12 matches of the season.

Given the rivalry and what was at stake on the night, tempers flared on the pitch, with a couple of incidents standing out in particular.

One of those saw Barcelona wonderkid Gavi ram into Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and send him to the ground during the final stages of the match after it seemed like the latter had trampled on Robert Lewandowski’s foot.

This action happened off-the-ball and went unnoticed by the referee. But, Real Madrid players were reportedly very upset by the behaviour of the 18-year-old Barcelona midfielder, calling his actions ‘unsportsmanlike’.

Now, according to Adrian Sanchez, Real Madrid players have already sent messages to some Barcelona heavyweights about Gavi’s behaviour and have allegedly asked them to have a word with the teenager about the same.

Some reports in Spain are also claiming that Los Blancos feel that referees give the Barcelona youngster a lot of leeway on the pitch.

In his short career at the highest level, Gavi has made a name for himself with his fearless and aggressive attitude. And considering the rivalry and intensity of a Clasico, things tend to get dialled up to 11.

There have been many skirmishes between the two sets of players in the past. Ceballos himself was involved in an incident with Gavi during the Spanish Super Cup, but came out without any punishment from the referee.

The two players are currently part of the Spain national team squad and it will be interesting to see how they deal with things, especially with Barcelona and Real Madrid set to face off again on April 5 in Copa del Rey.

    Gavi needs to apologize. His fighting spirit must not affect his fair play.

    What about Dani ceballos pulling gavi hair??? Or Ramos, Marcelo, Pepe trashing Barcelona players especially Messi. Then there was no apologizing. Real Madrid are different lvl of hypocrites.

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.
