WATCH: Real Madrid signing Vinicius Junior sent off for Flamengo

Real Madrid signing Vinicius Junior was sent off for Flamengo against bitter rivals Botafogo yesterday.

The previous game between the two rivals saw Vinicius taunt fans and opponents after scoring - which led to a furious backlash from Botafogo supporters.

Yesterday's clash, won 1-0 by Fla, saw Vincius thrown on for the last 20 minutes, but he was dismissed after just 10 minutes following a clash with Botafogo's Igor Rabello. The 17 year-old was shown a straight red card.

Vinicius is expected to join Real Madrid for preseason before a decision is made whether he is registered with the squad or loaned to a LaLiga rival for next season.
