The Brazilian star is not willing to give someone else a place in the title

Real Madrid won last season’s Copa del Rey final against Osasuna. Last season’s two finalists were eliminated in the last sixteen this season. The club of the Basque region could not maintain the form of the last season this season.

Madrid were therefore supposedly favorites yesterday. Despite starting well at home, Osasuna could not cope with Vinicius Jr. Madrid moved 10 points ahead of second-placed Girona in the 4-2 win.

Vinicius Jr. is in great form. He has six goals in the last four matches. There is also an assist, but also one yellow card in each of these four matches. He eats yellow card every day by getting his head heated by the instigation of opponents and other team’s supporters. As it happened yesterday.

In the 4th minute of the match, Vinicius entered the D-box after stealing the ball from the opposing defender. He saw the goalkeeper coming forward and pulled to the right, then knocked the goalkeeper off balance and sent the ball to the far post. Harassed by the home crowd from the start, Vinicius celebrated aggressively.

Osasuna equalized after 3 minutes. The balance lasted only 11 minutes, despite Budimir pulling the hosts back into the match with his 15th goal of the season. In the 18th minute, Fede Valverde sent Brahim Dias’ flick to the penalty spot.

With the Osasuna defense busy with Vinicius, Brasilia pulled one of the wingers to the other side. Carvahal came in and sent the ball into the net using the outside of his boot. Vinicius created several chances for the remainder of the first half but failed to convert them. On the contrary, he argued with the referee and saw the yellow card. He is not playing in the next match in the league. In the 41st minute, Jose Arneis’ shot could have been equalized if Madrid goalkeeper Andrea Lunin had not saved it with a superb dive.

Madrid was dominant in the second half as well. Valverde got his second assist in the 61st minute. Although his contribution to it is very little. A cross from their own box met Valverde’s head in midfield to send Osasuna into the half. Brahim Dias took control of the ball in one run. He sent the ball into the net with his right foot without giving any chance to the defender and the advancing goalkeeper.

Valverde completes his hat-trick of assists after 3 minutes. Rudiger’s long pass chested down in front of Vinicius. The Brazilian star went a little further into the box with the ball. But he did not give up and pushed the ball towards the goal from a difficult angle. The goalkeeper could not catch the ball as he was very close. By the time the defender returns, the ball has crossed the line.

Still, Madrid could have scored. In the 75th minute, Rodrigo broke through four men with a solo effort, but the out-of-form Brazilian youngster took a shot past the goalkeeper. Iker Munoz equalized for Osasuna in the first minute of added time. However, Madrid could have increased the gap after 3 minutes.
Osasuna went on the attack, so their goalkeeper came forward a bit. With the ball in their own half, Arda Gulash took a shot near midfield. His shot hit the crossbar. The return ball falls to Valverde. Valverde failed to take the ball shot more incredibly than the goulash shot.

Madrid’s 23-match unbeaten run in the league moved closer to the title with this win. Because second-placed Girona lost 1-0 to Hetaf. However, in the next match, Madrid will play at Athletic Bilbao without Vinicius.

After the match, Ancelotti reminded how important this Brazilian is, ‘today he could have scored four goals without any problem. He was excellent in all situations, absolutely cool in front of goal. We need a player like that.’
