Relevo reports that Dani Alves, the former player of the "Barcelona" and "Brazil" national teams, arrived at the court for the hearing on rape charges. 

According to the source, 28 witnesses will testify in court.

It was reported earlier that the prosecutor's office demanded to sentence the football player to 9 years in prison and pay the victim 150,000 euros in compensation. However, the petition submitted by the victim increased the possible prison term to 12 years.

It should be noted that in January, Dani Alves was accused of raping a 23-year-old girl in Barcelona's "Sutton" nightclub. The former football player faces 12 years in prison. Moreover, Alves has been detained in the Catalan prison since January 20, 2023.
