Speaking to DAZN, Villarreal right-back Juan Foyth has heaped praise on Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr, calling the Brazilian winger ‘one of the best players in the world’.

Real Madrid face Villarreal in La Liga this weekend and in the lead-up to the game, Foyth has sung praises of Vinicius Jr, against whom he will be competing on Saturday.

Foyth, who has been heavily linked with a summer move to Barcelona, believes Vinicius is one of the best in the world and stated that opponents need to respect the 22-year-old Brazilian international.

“Viní Jr is a player who always puts you at risk. You have to respect him because he has earned it,” Foyth said.

“Viní Jr knows he’s good. He has a lot of personality and that’s why he’s one of the best players in the world. He is a lethal weapon in Real Madrid’s attack, one of the biggest clubs in history,” the Argentine international added.

Vinicius has enjoyed another splendid season in 2022/23, racking up an impressive return of 20 goals and 15 assists from 43 matches in all competitions.

The Brazilian was in his elements as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 4-0 away at Camp Nou on Wednesday to book a place in the finals of the Copa del Rey.

And Carlo Ancelotti & co. will hope that the former Flamengo wonderkid continues in the same vein of form when he faces up Foyth and Villarreal on Saturday.

The Real Madrid manager has been vocal in his praise for Vinicius as well and has backed him to become one of the best in the game in the next ten years.

“Vinicius is a very strong player. He is incredibly talented because, in addition to the Brazilian technique, he has extraordinary physical power. I’m not saying he’ll make football history, but he’ll surely be among the best in the world in the next 10 years,” he had said earlier this week.

Real Madrid are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
