Vinicius Junior has had a knack for being at the heart of decisive moments so far this season, with his latest contribution being a late winner in Real Madrid’s 2-1 triumph against Sevilla on Sunday, November 28.
As the game entered its final knockings, with the game tied at 1-1, Vinicius stepped up and scored a stunning goal in the 87th minute to secure all three points for Real Madrid.
The 21-year-old’s latest goal has added to his impressive collection that he has so far this season – his strikes against Shakhtar Donetsk, Elche and Levante come to mind – as he continues to prove that he can score goals of any calibre.
A new hero at the Bernabeu
The Real Madrid fans have certainly noticed Vinicius’ improvements to his game and recognized this in their most recent game against Sevilla by chanting his name and giving him an ovation as he was withdrawn in second-half stoppage time.
His ability to remain focused throughout games this season and convert the pivotal chance was seen by all against Sevilla. Last night saw what was likely to be his best game for the club, and he was awarded man of the match for his efforts.
Vinicius only had two shots on target in the game, but took the most important opportunity in impressive fashion. In doing so, his contributions have come at key moments in LaLiga Santander and the Champions League too, with his latest goal giving Real Madrid a four-point cushion at the top of the table.
