Vini Jr was instrumental in Shakhtar Donetsk win.
The winger has delivered two assists in the game which was converted by none other than Karim Benzema who has been phenomenal so far this campaign.
The Brazilian would continue helping Benzema win the Ballon d’Or this year.
“Playing at the Bernabéu brings me tremendous joy. The Bernabéu is always really supportive of me and I’m pleased that I’m doing well. It’s very important for me and for the team that we can continue like this, winning at home is very important for us,” he said.
“It was a really tough match against a good team, but we managed to win, which is the most important thing. We have to continue like this, do the things the coach asks us to do and keep going, because it’s a long season. We should celebrate today’s victory, but now we have to think about Saturday, which is really close,” he added.
“I think it’s important to remain calm, confident and work as a team, which is what we always do in training. Now things are working out in the matches. I’m extremely pleased to have provided another assist for Karim. I always want to be at my best, as does Karim, and I want to continue helping him so that he can be Pichichi again and win the Ballon d’Or,” concluded Vinicius.
