The last time we recorded the podcast, Real Madrid had just come off back-to-back victories against Villareal in the Copa del Rey and Athletic Club in La Liga. It seemed like Real Madrid was back on track after their Supercopa loss to Barcelona.
Los Blancos then defeated Atlético Madrid in a heated Copa Del Rey match that was preceded by disgusting racially charged antics by some Atlético Madrid fans towards Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior. Real Madrid then drew against a tough Real Sociedad, dropping important points in the La Liga title race.
A 2-0 victory over Valencia put Los Blancos back on track but a disastrous performance versus Mallorca saw them lose not only the game but fall further back of FC Barcelona in the title race. With Barcelona now 8 points clear at the top of La Liga and multiple Real Madrid players injured, it now seems Real Madrid’s title defense is out of reach.
However, aside from Real Madrid’s up-and-down performances on the pitch, injuries, fatigue, and lack from the board to buy any backup players during the winter transfer window, now Real Madrid’s star winger, Vinicius Junior, has been on the receiving end of multiple instances of racial abuse and what we feel is a coordinated attack by many in the Spanish media to paint him as some sort of villain.
In this podcast, we wanted to touch on racism in La Liga and football as a whole, our zero tolerance for it, as well as Real Madrid’s sporting woes and much more.
