The new Real Madrid era under Santiago Solari started off on the right foot against Melilla in the Copa del Rey winning 4-0 away from home. sbobet 789 The interim coach knew how serious the first match would be and made some changes to the Los Blancos line up in the hope of starting off with a win.
In his starting debut for Real Madrid, Vinicius Junior made sure to demonstrate that he should be considered a starter for games in the future rather than routinely playing for Castilla as Julen Lopetegui preferred. The Brazilian finished the match almost as complete as one could hope, having two assists and almost scoring multiple times himself. sbobet 789 One ball hit the crossbar and another stayed on the line eventually being finished by Alvaro Odriozola. He even dared a rabona. After watching his performance today, Vinicius must be measured in more demanding scenarios but the difference in performance was marked by the fact that he played more than 10 minutes. Surely he deserved more minutes than Lopetegui gave him.
