Laravel - Routing - Inspecting The Current Route

If you would like to determine if the current request was routed to a given named route, you may use the named method on a Route instance. For example, you may check the current route name from a route middleware:

 * Handle an incoming request.
 * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
 * @param  \Closure  $next
 * @return mixed
public function handle($request, Closure $next)
    if ($request->route()->named('profile')) {

    return $next($request);
