After having played a huge role in Real Madrid’s successful campaign last season, Vinicius Junior is once again starring big-time for the reigning champions of Spain and Europe.

The 22-year-old speedster, despite going through a bit of a lean patch after the World Cup, has already racked up 18 goals and nine assists from 35 matches across all competitions.

Vinicius’ most recent starring display came against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League at Anfield, as he scored a brace to help the Merengues secure a 5-2 win after being two goals down early in the game.

One of the biggest complaints fans had against Vinicius in the early parts of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu was that his finishing was not up to the mark and he used to spurn chances.

But, that has changed drastically over the past year and a half, as witnessed by his returns. The 22-year-old had netted 22 goals last term and looks well set to eclipse that tally this time around, having already scored 18 times.

Having made such an improvement in his goalscoring capabilities, Vinicius is not resting on his laurels.

Indeed, according to a report from ABC (h/t Madrid Zone), the Brazilian international is working hard on his shooting techniques and finishing skills to further polish his game and take it to the next level.

The Real Madrid superstar has the belief that he can become a prolific goalscorer and manage to net 30 goals per season if he continues to work on his skills and perform the way he has been in recent times.

Following the match against Liverpool, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti hailed Vinicius as the most influential forward in the game currently.

“Right now he’s the most influential player in world football. No other player has this consistency,” the Italian tactician said.

And Vinicius seems keen to continue enhancing his reputation as one of the best, most decisive attackers in football at the present by further polishing his skills in front of goal and becoming a bigger threat for opposition defences.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
