Vinicius shines as Real win 3-0
Forward Vinicius Junior helped Real Madrid steady the ship as a 3-0 win over Leganes yesterday morning (Singapore time) put them on the brink of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.
The Brazilian, 18, capped an electric display at the Santiago Bernabeu with a stunning volley, his third goal for the club and the team’s third of the day.
By then, Sergio Ramos had scored a first-half penalty and Lucas Vazquez doubled the advantage to send Real on their way to their first win of 2019, after 2-0 loss to Real Sociedad on Sunday.
In another Copa del Rey last 16, first-leg match, Girona drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid.
