Last night, Vinicius Jr. once again proved why he is seen as one of the topmost players in football currently as he helped Real Madrid secure a 2-1 win over Bayern Munich, in the process sealing a place in the UEFA Champions League finals.

The Brazilian ace was the star of the show as Los Blancos mounted a comeback from a goal behind to eliminate Thomas Tuchel’s side, walking away with yet another Man of the Match award.

Alejandro Garnacho comments on Vinicius’ social media post

Following the match, Manchester United winger Alejandro Garnacho took to social media to express his admiration for Vinicius Jr.

Reacting to a post made by the Real Madrid attacker, the Manchester United starlet commented on it, calling the Brazilian the best in the world.

“Best player in the world,” wrote Garnacho.

Ballon d’Or incoming?

Time and again this season, Vinicius Jr. has put his hands up when Real Madrid have needed him and delivered clutch performances.

The winger has now racked up 21 goals and 11 assists across all competitions, despite having missed around two months of action due to injuries.

With the La Liga title in the bag, along with the Spanish Super Cup, Vinicius Jr. could now add another Champions League winners’ medal to his tally.

And Man of the Match displays in both legs of the semi-finals showcase his quality. So, it would not be too far-fetched to suggest that the 23-year-old is a strong contender to win the Ballon d’Or this year.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
