Real Madrid are cruising towards a resounding victory over UD Almeria at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Merengues are leading 4-2 courtesy of a hat-trick from Karim Benzema, while Rodrygo Goes also scored early in the second half.

Vinicius Jr has enjoyed another spectacular game, causing all sorts of problems from the left flank. The 22-year-old set Benzema up for the first goal and then won the penalty from which the Frenchman completed his hat-trick.

While the evening has been full of positives for Carlo Ancelotti & co., the only blemish is that Vinicius and Eduardo Camavinga have picked up yet another yellow card and will thus miss the upcoming La Liga game against Real Sociedad.

The Brazilian superstar was on nine yellow cards into the game and was cautioned by the referee at the Bernabeu today in the 37th minute, for protesting a decision after he had been fouled by an Almeria player.

As for Camavinga, he had four bookings heading into today’s clash, but was shown a yellow in the 74th minute.

Thus, with the latest booking, Vinicius and Camavinga will miss the difficult trip to Reale Arena to face Real Sociedad next midweek.

It has been another positive performance from Vinicius, who has now recorded a goal contribution in eight consecutive games and has recorded 20+ goals and 20+ assists in back-to-back seasons. Camavinga, meanwhile, also put up a good showing starting at left-back once again.

Their absence will be felt against La Real next week.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
