Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal and Barcelona goalkeeper Arnau Tenas were involved in a heated altercation following the latter’s 2-1 win in the recent El Clasico.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Madrid defender was seen saying something provocatory to the Barcelona keeper in the aftermath of the game.

Tenas was walking towards his teammates, who were celebrating the win in a huddle. The 21-year-old was interrupted by the Madrid defender who put his hand around the stopper’s neck while pointing his index finger towards him.

While it is unclear what Carvajal actually said to the keeper, the words worked their way like a sword as the young keeper looked extremely angry. Thankfully, Jordi Alba was attentive to the situation and rushed towards the players.

While Carvajal was seen walking back to the dressing room, Tenas had to be controlled by the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Thibaut Courtois and Ronald Araujo and the likes of Alba and Carlos Naval, the Barça delegate, asked the Madrid defender not to inflame the situation further.

There is simply no love lost between Carvajal and Tenas and it remains to be seen how the two will greet each other when Real Madrid and Barcelona cross paths once again in three week’s time, this time in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at Camp Nou. It must be remembered that Madrid are trailing the tie 0-1.

As for the recent fixture, Madrid were once again beaten by Barcelona despite taking an early lead through Araujo’s own goal.

The Blaugrana got back into the game through Sergi Roberto’s goal before Franck Kessie, whose attempt in injury time found the bottom corner, sealed the win for his team.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
