Vinicius jr Continues his Brilliant Form as Madrid return to top of the League

Vinicius Junior scored his 8th league goal of the season as Real Madrid thrashed Granada 4-1 on Sunday to shoot back to the top of La Liga. 

Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez put Madrid two up inside the opening 30 minutes at Los Carmenes. Granada briefly made a game of it when Luis Suarez pulled a goal back, only to be blown away in the second half. Before the Brazilian finished off a sumptuous Madrid passing move and was then on the end of a rash challenge from Granada’s Manchu, who was sent off with 23 minutes left to play.

Madrid, though, appear to be hitting their stride after recording their fourth consecutive win and extending their unbeaten run to seven in all competitions. With one man down in Granada’s camp, the lead was never really in doubt and Ferland Mendy made it four to complete a convincing victory, which sent Madrid two points clear at the top of the table. 

Granada sit 18th, four points off the bottom while Carlo Ancelotti will now turn his attention to Wednesday’s Champions League game away at Sheriff Tiraspol, with qualification to the last 16 not yet secured.
