The Brazilian, the hero of a tragic ending in the Mestalla.
A veritable madness and an embarrassing spectacle is what happened at the Mestalla this afternoon, with Real Madrid visiting Valencia for matchday 35 of LaLiga. And one of the main characters in those scenes has been Vinicius.
The Brazilian forward, who had received a racist slur minutes earlier, was sent off by the head referee, de Burgos Bengoetxia, after attacking Real Madrid attacker Hugo Duro. The former Flamengo player could be punished for several days after leaving the field of play for applauding the referee and making ‘a segunda’ gestures to the Valencian public.
All the Details of Valencia Vs. real madrid
In the 94th minute of the game, a brawl broke out between the players of both teams after one of many spectacular saves by Mamardashvili. Several players attended and the Valencia goalkeeper was shown a yellow card.
But VAR called de Burgos Bengoexxia to assess Vinicius’s action. As could be seen on cameras, the Brazilian player struck Hugo Duro in the face with his arm, who fell to the ground touching his face. The resounding image drew a condemnation from Vinicius who expelled.
But the scandal did not stop there: the Real Madrid attacker praised the referee’s decision, also applauded the public who insulted him, and made gestures mocking the delicate position that Che’s team is going through in the La Liga standings. He made a ‘2’ with his fingers and on several occasions moved his hand down, signaling that Valencia would be relegated to the second division. A Valencia that winds up at the bottom of the table and clings to permanence thanks to the three points achieved against Real Madrid.
