Two of Brazil's biggest clubs have staged an anti-racism protest in support of the nation's star winger, Vinicius Jr.

The Real Madrid superstar was again subjected to racial abuse during a game at the Mestallavs. Valencia last Sunday.

As a result, his former club Flamengo wore jerseys with 'Vini Jr.' emblazoned on the front and partook in a seated protest with Cruzeiro for the first 36 seconds of the game.

In the stands of the Maracana Stadium, thousands of supporters made a tifo which read 'everyone with Vini Jr' on Saturday.

Valencia's partial stadium ban was reduced from five to three matches with the initial fine of $48,000 now lowered to $29,000.

Vinicius was left out of the squad for Real's 2-1 comeback win vs. Sevilla. He also missed the clash withRayo Vallecano Wednesday evening due to a slight injury following the Valencia clash.
