The Mario Kempes Grada will remain closed against Espanyol. Mestalla will celebrate this Sunday the first of the three partial closing matches of its stands after the incidents that occurred a week ago at Valencia-Real Madrid. The black and white club has unsuccessfully tried to get the TAD to grant it at least the precautionary measure, although the different committees to which the club has filed an appeal have rushed to do their job so that the Vinícius case has an answer fast and an international image, as will be the one in the empty stands.
Valencia, which will now go to ordinary justice to defend itself, will place two banners in the Mario Kempes Grada, which is located behind the goal of the South Goal of Mestalla, where Vinícius pointed out a fan for racist insults. The League urges him to place one with a slogan against racism and Valencia adds another with a message requesting respect for the Valencian fans, which has been singled out globally and unfairly throughout the week. Thus, it will be read and can be seen in the stadium and on the broadcast: “All against racism” and “Respect for our fans. Amunt Valencia” (both banners are written in English).
