On a night where not only Solari was tested as the new white coach, the young Brazilian was also presenting an exam to be the starter for the first time with the first white team. Vini as he is called by his partners, has past with the best note, being the best of the team, leaned to the left started the match a little shy, ensuring each action and ended up throwing luxuries and returning the joy to the football of Madrid.
Madrid took a long time to settle; for 15 minutes in Melilla it lived to the limit, but thanks to a good play by Lucas Vázquez and Benzema’s empty goal definition, Madrid managed to gain confidence and with it, the young Brazilian who led the attack with unparalleled freshness. Then he served two goals, the first one to Lucas that incredibly failed, and he put a precise pass to Asensio that made it 2-0 for the Merengues.
On the return of the break with the party on track Solari decided to remove the captains Benzema and Sergio Ramos, the game entered a monotonous stage until Vinicius reappeared with his magic a bit more individualistic showed all the quality that he has with dribbling, snatches, and center of “rabonas” that drew applause to the people of Melilla, He was closed to the goal twice but the pole said no, served another goal to Odriozola who needed it as much as he, after that in recent games Lopetegui did not take him into account, the 4th goal of the whites would be put by Cristo, the one from the quarry that was released did not waste the opportunity to make his goal in time of discount to a pass from Odriozola.
A victory that means a lot to the future of Madrid, Solari asked for “cojones” and the homegrown players showed that they were well placed. No matter the quality of the rival of second B nor the competition, Vinicius and Odriozola as leaders knock on the door to be holders in major matches.
