LaLiga has reported the racist abuse directed at Real Madrid striker Vinicius Junior by Barcelona fans during El Clasico to authorities.

The incident happened when

Vinicius

was making his way across the Camp Nou pitch after being replaced in the 87th minute of Los Blancos' 2-1 triumph on Sunday.

LaLiga wants to report the event to the Barcelona Prosecutor's Office in case it is a hate crime.

A statement from LaLiga read:

"Following the events that occurred in the match held at Camp Nou last Sunday, in which a home fan abused Real Madrid player Vinicius Jr with racist insults, LaLiga will proceed to report the event to the Hate Crimes Chamber of the Prosecutor's Office in Barcelona in case they constitute the crime outlined in Article 510 of the Penal Code.

"LaLiga, as it did when [Athletic Bilbao's] Inaki Williams received racist insults at the home of Espanyol in January 2020, will appear as a private complainant to cooperate in the fight against any type of act or behavior that is racist or xenophobic.

"LaLiga has been fighting this kind of behavior for years and promoting the positive values of sport."
