Vinicius has hit the ground running this season and has become an undisputed starter in Real Madrid’s attack alongside Karim Benzema, in what is his most fruitful campaign in terms of goals scored thus far.
The Brazilian forward sent the ball into the back of net again away at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes in Los Blancos’ 4-1 victory over Granada on Sunday. This was his 10th goal in 15 games in 2021/22, as Vinicius has netted eight times in LaLiga Santander and scored another two goals in the Champions League.
Vinicius registered his best scoring tally in a season back in 2018 at Flamengo, but since joining Los Blancos he had never managed to net more than six goals in one term.
The Brazil international has gelled with Benzema in attack, providing another much-needed scoring option for Los Blancos.
Vinicius can’t be stopped
Vinicius looks unstoppable this season on the pitch, as opposition defenders are struggling to contain the young forward due to his ability to dribble past opponents.
Granada players had a hard time defending Vinicius on Sunday, with Monchu even sent off after a rough challenge on the Real Madrid forward in the second half.
