Vinicius’s Stunner Gives Real Madrid a Late Victory Over Sevilla

Vinicius Junior scored a spectacular 87th-minute winner as Real Madrid rallied to upset Sevilla 2-1 on Sunday and move four points clear of La Liga.

Vinicius, 21, has been a revelation this season and was once again the difference at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he received a standing ovation following his sixth consecutive triumph. “He is exceptional,” Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti remarked of the player. “He’s a player that possesses something unique in his feet.”

His goal, a spectacular drive into the top corner following a charging run-in from the left, meant Sevilla walked away empty-handed from a game they dominated for the whole of the first half.

Rafa Mir put them ahead early on, but the game changed on an error by goalkeeper Bono, who allowed Karim Benzema his 19th goal of the season on the eve of the 33-year-Ballon old’s d’Or celebrations.

Madrid moves four points clear of Real Sociedad, whom they will face at Anoeta next weekend, while Sevilla remains fourth, five points behind the leaders.
