WHAT HAPPENED? A group of home team supporters were heard shouting: "You are a monkey, Vinicius, you are a monkey" outside of the Wanda Metropolitano before the clash between the two teams.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The chant comes in the wake of a comment from president of Spanish football agents Pedro Bravo, who said during a broadcast that Vinicius should stop dancing like a "monkey".
AND WHAT'S MORE: Vinicius hit back at the comments with a powerful statement on a video, adding: "I repeat to you, racists: I will not stop dancing." Meanwhile, fellow Brazil star Neymar and football icon Pele were among those who voiced their support, urging him to keep on dancing.
