Spain's state prosecutors will request a nine-year prison sentence for Brazilian defender Dani Alves, according to EFE judicial sources.

Alves, 40, will face trial in Spain for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in a night club in December of 2022.

The prosecutors' office will also demand €150,000 in compensation for the alleged victim.

A date for the trial has not been set.

In an order, Section 21 of the Barcelona high court recently confirmed Alves' prosecution, concluding that the statement from the alleged victim and witnesses, as well as expert corroboration, provide sufficient evidence to try him for the crime of sexual assault.
