Real Madrid News: Vinicius Jr Hits Back at Atletico in Perfect Fashion as Real Madrid Win

Real Madrid News: With an easy victory over Atletico Madrid in a heated derby on Sunday night, Los Blancos continued their unblemished start to the La Liga season.

Karim Benzema is still out injured for Carlo Ancelotti’s team. However, they kept up their stellar play, winning all nine games this season in all competitions. Real handled the hostile environment of Atleti’s stadium excellently. They scored both goals in the first half courtesy of Rodrygo and Federico Valverde.

To start the scoring, Rodrygo casually half-volleyed in Aurelien Tchouameni’s perfectly-weighted chip over the top of the Atletico Madrid defense. After Vinicius Junior charged onto a Luka Modric through-ball and toe-poked the post, Valverde tucked in the rebound.

Diego Simeone started Antoine Griezmann for the first time this year. However, it required Thibaut Courtois’ error to give them a chance to get back into the game. Mario Hermoso scored from the mistake. He was sent off a few mins later after two yellow cards in quick succession. Here are some talking points from the game in Madrid.

The game got off to a horrible start. A video of Atletico Madrid supporters performing racist chants about Vinicius surfaced on social media. After agent Pedro Bravo told the Brazil player to “stop playing the monkey” live on Spanish television, the Real star spent days leading up to the game replying.

Vinicius swore to keep dancing in jubilation after goals were scored; on Sunday night, he did just that. His partner Rodrygo scored the game’s first goal, but the pair quickly took a stand against racism by dancing by the corner flag.

The young Real forwards and their teammates showed incredible defiance at that moment, responding to hatred in the best way conceivable.

Atleti crowd disgraces itself

On Sunday night, Atleti’s supporters added another more depraved act to their repertoire in addition to shouting repugnant racial songs about Vinicius. During the jubilation following Real’s two goals in the first half, objects showered down from the stands.

A request to cease was made during the halftime announcement over the stadium’s speaker system, Metropolitano Stadium. Instead, Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was observed passing an object to the referee halfway through the second period to attract attention to the persistent problem.

Valverde’s hot streak

On September 6, when Real’s Champions League campaign got underway against Celtic and Benzema went down with an injury, there was a clear fear among the team’s supporters: who would score the goals? Some of the responses were Rodrygo, Vinicius, and even Eden Hazard. Few people would have anticipated Valverde’s recent hot streak.

The Uruguayan midfielder has primarily been a background figure for Real in recent years. Although Carlo Ancelotti has come to rely on him, he has never performed to the same level as some of the team’s other talents.

That is starting to alter. Valverde has now scored four goals this season, compared to just one last year, including three in his previous three outings. The 24-year-old has elevated himself in the star-studded club’s pecking order by adding a clinical edge to his athleticism and technical proficiency.
