Madrid’s Vinicius Jr was originally set to be suspended for tonight’s game
However, his red card against Valencia was overturned after a review
He will not play tonight as he has been left out of the squad due to injury
Vinicius Jr. will reportedly miss Real Madrid’s LaLiga game against Rayo Vallecano tonight due to a left knee problem.
Originally, the Brazilian winger should have missed the game after being sent off in Madrid’s 1-0 defeat by Valencia on Sunday for what appeared to be punching striker Hugo Duro in the face in second-half injury time in a scuffle.
However, he was racially abused by home fans before and during the game and after reviewing the footage, he was stripped of his red card and given Valencia a five-game partial stadium ban.
However, he will not be able to take the field at the Bernabeu tonight as he is injured and has not been included in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad for the matchday, according to COPE.
According to the report, Vinicius Junior is also in doubt for his side’s next game against Sevilla on Saturday.
