Vinicius en feu, Haaland sous le charme !

The Norwegian cyborg praised the performance of Brazilian genius Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

Vinicius Junior came close to scoring one of the goals of the season on Tuesday night, passing a streak of Atalanta players before putting his shot right off the right post from Marco Sportiello, but it drew a positive reaction from the side. of his Real Madrid teammates.

The 20-year-old has been criticized at times, but a dribble like the one that got everyone off the ground against Atalanta reminded Los Blancos fans of his first season in the Spanish capital.

In the absence of supporters, Real Madrid players in the stands - the substitutes and those who weren't in the squad - applauded Vinicius as they saw him walk past one player and then another.

Casemiro led the way with his screams, while Sergio Ramos threw himself to the ground after seeing that the Brazilian winger was unable to cap the movement with a goal.

There is no doubt about Vinicius' mentality; he always tries, again and again, and again. He cares very little about what is said about him and he knows very well what he needs to improve. That said, a performance like the one he achieved against Atalanta is great news for everyone involved at Real Madrid.

His teammates know he's been through tough times and that's why they wanted to see him find the back of the net. Interestingly, Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland, who has been heavily linked with a summer move to Madrid, "liked" all the photos showing Vinicius after the game.

Zinedine Zidane is aware that the Vinicius seen against Atalanta will be an asset to Real Madrid for the rest of this season and into the future, while the former Flamengo prodigy understands he now has to follow that up with other performances high-flying. “I'm very tough and mentally strong,” Vinicius said.
