Real Madrid have qualified in the final of the UEFA Champions League after beating Bayern Munich in the semi-final on Wednesday at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Los Blancos yet again made a comeback after being 0-1 down in the game, and Joselu scored two late goals in the 88th minute and one in the first minute of the stoppage time to win 4-3 on aggregate. This is not the first time the La Liga champions made the impossible in 2022/23 against Manchester City in the semi-final itself.

Vinicius Junior who had a brilliant game on the night was excellent in the game as he gave nightmares to Bayern right back Joshua Kimmich giving him a torrid time with his twisting and turning down the left flank. And he also irritated the Germany international with his time-wasting. In a video that has been viral on social media the full back took the ball to give to Vinicius but ended up dropping it right in front of him.

The 29-year-old footballer then placed the ball directly to Vinicius's chest, where he cheekily dropped it to buy a few more seconds before Luka Modric arrived to take the throw-in. He provoked the fans for cheering and that has created problems in the social media, because the Brazilian was subjected racial abuse for his action on the field. 

Here's the video

Vini Jr continues to provoke footballers

The 23-year-old winger has been often seen provoking others on the field and after he faces repercussions, the footballer has complained about the actions against the opponents and the fans. The video last night showed his provoking nature in the game, for a professional footballer playing at the highest stages of the game.

However, the fans also need to understand that racism is not an option to troll a footballer. There have been stands taken against the racism factor La Liga has filed numerous complaints in Spanish courts over alleged racist and hate insults directed at Vinícius, but many have been put aside.
