Racist scandal or smooth match – Valencia-Real special tips

If not the biggest stakes, then certainly one of the most crucial matches will be played in Valencia this weekend. A visit from Real Madrid is always a special thrill, especially in light of what happened last May. Will this be another scandal?

The stakes will not be huge, though, with the Blancos’ title a sure thing and the Bats’ hopes of an international cup run at best. In the autumn, Carlo Ancelotti’s side made it five at home, but in this article we’re not so much looking at the odds as we are looking at specific bets on the 22bet’s special markets. The reason for this is because of what happened last May…

Trouble at Mestalla

In the 70th minute, the Brazilian striker Vinícius Junior decided to leave the pitch after racist remarks were made against him. His teammates eventually persuaded him to play the rest of the match, but the Brazilian star was sent off for an elbow in the 97th minute. The waving to the fans was just the icing on the cake and the incident had a serious aftermath.

The home side tried to downplay the incident, while Vinícius said he loved Spain, but “while once it was the championship of Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, today it is the championship of racists”. The incident eventually had legal implications, with seven people identified and charged with racism, while Villanueva, who was acting as a VAR referee, was banned for one match.

Interestingly, Netflix wanted to film a documentary on Vinicius at the Mestalla on Saturday evening, but Valencia did not allow it.

So Vinícius, banned for an elbow, returns to Valencia for the first time on Saturday night and the atmosphere is sure to be a spicy one. Although everyone from the Valencia players to the sponsors have distanced themselves from racism, we can be sure that the fans will try to get Madrid’s best player fired up again in some way. The only question now is what the young striker will do about it.

Vinícius is not one of the most abusive and unsportsmanlike players, with 38 yellows and 1 red in 249 games for Real Madrid (this was in the same game), while in La Liga he gets a warning every 6 games on average. This season he has 2 yellows in 17 league games, so he is not in danger of a ban.

It will therefore be a tough task for Real Madrid and Vinícius, who have brought an experienced fox in Gil Manzano to the Mestalla. Finally, let’s take a look at some betting options from 22bet, all on the above topic.
