The Santiago Bernabéu prepares for this afternoon in the game at 7:30 p.m. against Rayo Vallecano different acts of reparation to Vinícius, but the Brazilian will not be present on the pitch despite the fact that yesterday Tuesday the Competition Committee issued him the red card for his attack on Hugo Duro in Mestalla. The striker has not finally joined the squad given by Ancelotti because he has not overcome his knee discomfort.

According to club sources, the lack of importance of the game advises Madrid not to force Vinícius, who if he continues with his normal recovery process could be available to the coach for the next game, against Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán, on Saturday 27 of May.

A large banner from the club against racism and in support of its player, who already met with Florentino Pérez last Monday, is expected at the Bernabeu today. Apart from this show of institutional support, many other banners are also expected in the stands promoted by the different supporters clubs, which have asked that in minute 20, Vinícius’s number, the public show their support for the Brazilian with prolonged applause, a form of reminder that is already practiced in other fields and that has taken place at the Bernabéu for many years in the 7th minute, when from the young stands the chant “illa, illa, Juanito marvel” is chanted.

The insignificance of the match and the time, which was originally going to be played at 10:00 p.m. but was changed to 7:30 p.m. because Sevilla-Real Madrid was also brought forward to Saturday, will cause the Bernabéu to record just over half an inning, according to the forecasts.
