Real Madrid suffered a major blow in their title aspirations when they were held by Real Betis, effectively allowing FC Barcelona to extend their lead at the top to nine points.

While it was a largely disappointing game for most of the Real Madrid players – some experienced a worse night than others, with Vinicius Junior, in particular, once again being a subject of racial abuse from opposition fans.

However, according to Spanish media, the Real Madrid players were not too happy with Vinicius either.

The forward was seen talking and complaining to the referee multiple times. He was already on a yellow, which meant he risked getting sent off, potentially leaving his team in greater danger.

Footage shows the likes of Carlo Ancelotti and Antonio Rudiger being visibly frustrated with Vini’s complaints. Federico Valverde, too, turned his head when the Brazilian approached the referee time and time again.

According to a report from Pablo Polo Santias, Vinicius’ behaviour during the game and even after the game was not appreciated by some of his Real Madrid teammates. It is not a good sign for the Brazilian attacker, who has faced some serious backlash from opposition fans and players, for his tendency to complain and whine about every issue.

For a player who has been earmarked as the future of Real Madrid, it is perhaps time for Vinicius Junior to show more patience.

On the flip side, however, the forward has indeed been the victim of racial abuse multiple times in La Liga, and it is high time the authority takes firm actions to curb the problem. In addition, Vini is also the most fouled player on the pitch, making it significantly harder for the player to retain his sense of composure week in week out.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
