Rodrygo and Vinicius: The start of something great

12 Dec 2019

Real Madrid have been looking for some magic during the 2019/20 season, and Wednesday evening saw just that in the form of Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior.

The two Brazilians led the Club Brugge defence on a merry-dance with their technical play, and the pair both deservedly got onto the scoresheet as Real Madrid finished in second place in the group.

After having struggled to break into the team this season, Vinicius looked every bit the player that he was before suffering an injury against Ajax last term.

A grand total of 90 million euros has been invested in the two players seen as the future of Los Blancos, but rarely have we seen the two of them work so well together until Wednesday’s clash in Bruges.

Zinedine Zidane operated with an attacking trio consisting of Rodrygo on the right, Luka Jovic in the centre and Vinicius ion the left.

Jovic continues to appear weighed down by both his price tag and the 27 goals he scored in his final season with Eintracht Frankfurt, but he was ably supported by his two partners on Wednesday evening.

Rodrygo has been the revelation of the campaign thus far, scoring six senior team goals, and he now sits behind only Karim Benzema in the club’s scoring charts.

One of the problems that has come this term has been using the two Brazilians together, with it often seen as a battle between the two for just one place in the team, but Wednesday proved they can be destructive together.
