In the 23rd minute of the second half, while dribbling through the opponent’s penalty area, Vinicius’ attack was stopped due to ill-mannered play.

After the game, Vinicius posted on his SNS, “This is not the first, not the second, not the third. Racism is commonplace in La Liga. La Liga seems to think this situation is normal,’ he said, ‘in Brazil, Spain is known as a racist country.’
Regarding this, Tebas, president of Primera Liga, refuted, saying, ‘Vinicius should know himself well before criticizing La Liga.’ Vinicius criticized Tebas, saying, “The La Liga president attacks me instead of blaming racism.”
“There can be no joy where there is racism,” the Brazilian Football Association said in response to racist attacks on Vinicius. He defended Vinicius, saying that racism is a global disease.
