Vinicius inspires Madrid to much-needed win over Leganes

Vinicius Junior impressed for Real Madrid

Vinicius Junior impressed for Real Madrid

Vinicius Junior has the personality required to thrive at a club like Real Madrid, according to Emilio Butragueno.

"Making my debut at the Bernabeu is great".

Vinícius was the star of the night, scoring a stunner before being replaced by Brahim, but the former Man City man had a good showing after coming on for the Brazilian, and says that one of Madrid's veterans had praise for him after the match. "But we will fight until the end".

The hosts had seen two shouts waved off before the referee finally pointed to the spot in the 42nd minute when Gerard Gumbau fouled Alvaro Odriozola in the area and Ramos converted his sixth penalty in all competitions this season.

Real are fifth in the La Liga table, 10 points behind leaders Barcelona and as well as the first leg against Leganes on Wednesday, Courtois is set to miss Sunday's league match away to Betis.

Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen to testify publicly before Congress
Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said the committee is consulting with Mueller's office about the testimony. He said he's speaking with Mueller's office to prevent that.

Vazquez scored the second in the 68th after a pass by Vinicius Junior, who 11 minutes later sealed the victory with a neat volley after a cross by Odriozola.

Real Madrid's injury worries have deepened after goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois suffered a pelvic muscle injury.

Simeone wasn't on the bench because he was serving the last of a three-game suspension for a rant during a Copa match against Sevilla last season.

The second leg is next Wednesday at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.

Solari, who has faced criticism for the team's drab start to 2019, also said the team felt a sense of release after the victory after the Sociedad defeat and last week's 2-2 draw at Villarreal.
