However, before the joy of winning the Madrid derby could subside, Atletico Madrid was on the chopping block due to controversy over racial discrimination.
Prior to the game, Atletico Madrid fans collectively chanted racist slogans outside the stadium, including “Vinicius, you are a monkey.”
Recently, the Spanish soccer world has been suffering from racial discrimination. In particular, the racism towards Real Madrid’s ace Vinicius is particularly severe.
Atletico Madrid fans already caused controversy in January last year for their racism by hanging a Vinicius doll from a leg. Spanish prosecutors sought four years in prison for the fans.
Then, in May, a group of Valencia home fans shouted racist slogans at Vinicius during a game.
This made Vinicius angry, and the La Liga secretariat imposed severe punishment on Valencia.
Although Spain is trying to eliminate racial discrimination, racial discrimination continues to this day.
