LaLiga has reported six chants to the Spanish Football Federation’s (RFEF) Anti-Violence Commission that were heard being sung by home fans during the Madrid derby on Saturday.

Atlético Madrid fans directed a number of songs deemed either racist or worthy of inciting violence towards the Real Madrid team and some individual players, such as Cristiano Ronaldo.

"That Portuguese, what a son of a bitch he is" 

As can be seen in the official LaLiga report below (written in Spanish) the offending chants included "Madridistas, hijos de puta" (“Madridistas, son of bitches”) and Ese portugués, que hijo puta es" (“That Portuguese, what a son of a bitch he is”), which referred to the Real Madrid and Portugal forward, Ronaldo.

RFEF to investigate 

Every week LaLiga sends such a report to RFEF, which the federation then investigates and takes the appropriate action required.
