Vinicius Jr’s assist for Karim Benzema vs Barcelona was absolutely outrageous

Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior showcased his impressive skills in the match against Barcelona, leading his team to a convincing 4-0 victory.

One of his most remarkable moves was setting up Karim Benzema’s third goal with an incredible display of skill.

In contrast, it was a challenging evening for Barcelona at Camp Nou. The Catalan team had a one-goal advantage after Eder Militao scored an own goal during the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final. However, they were unable to maintain their lead, and Real Madrid dominated the second leg to secure their place in the final.

Barcelona had a few opportunities to extend their lead in the first half of the game, but both chances were unsuccessful. Eduardo Camavinga made an interception on Gavi’s cutback, and Thibaut Courtois made a great save from Robert Lewandowski’s half-volley.

However, it was Courtois’ crucial save that helped Real Madrid turn the tide of the game.

They quickly launched a counterattack, with Benzema and Vinicius Jr exchanging passes before the Brazilian forward scored just before half-time, with the ball just crossing the goal line.

This goal proved to be a turning point in the match, allowing Real Madrid to take control and secure their victory.

Madrid dominate the second half

Although the first half was evenly matched, Real Madrid dominated the second half of the game.

Just five minutes after the restart, Karim Benzema scored his first goal of the night, receiving a pass from Luka Modric on the edge of the box and expertly finishing past Barcelona’s goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Benzema scored his second goal of the game from the penalty spot just eight minutes later, after Vinicius Junior was fouled by Franck Kessie inside the box. The French striker confidently converted the penalty, extending Real Madrid’s lead and further demoralizing Barcelona.

Real Madrid secured their place in the cup final with a third goal from Karim Benzema.

Vinicius Junior found the 35-year-old striker unmarked in the Barcelona box, and he calmly slotted the ball past the advancing Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

This was Benzema’s third goal of the night and sealed a dominant 4-0 victory for Real Madrid over their bitter rivals.

Vinicius produces insane skills to assist Benzema

Despite Benzema hogging the headlines, Vinicius Jr also played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s 4-0 victory over Barcelona.

The Brazilian has been one of the standout players in Europe this season, having scored 17 goals in all competitions and providing 12 assists as well.

His close control and skill on the ball have been a highlight of his play, making him one of the most exciting young talents in the game today.

Vinicius Jr also played a crucial role in the fourth goal, which sealed the win for Madrid.

And this was on display yet again last night for Benzema’s third goal.

Picking up the ball inside his half, Vinicius drives at the two Barcelona center-backs.

As he drags both players in, he neatly knocks the ball from his right foot to his left, taking it past the two defenders and into the path of the unmarked Benzema.

It is an outrageous bit of skill and the sign of a man that is full of confidence right now.

Carlo Ancelotti: ‘It was the perfect game’

Madrid remains 12 points behind yesterday’s opponents in La Liga, but they have performed well in cup competitions this season.

They will face Osasuna in the final of the Copa Del Rey on Saturday 6 May, while they face Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals next week.

And speaking after the game, Ancelotti praised his side and said they were playing at the right level for this important stage of the season.

“The boiler has reached the right temperature again,” the Italian said,perESPN. “This is the most important moment of the season and when we’re at the right temperature, we’re fine.

“The team delivered in every sense: defensively, offensively, being clinical up front. It was the perfect game.”

That bodes well for the remainder of the season, and yesterday’s performance will terrify Chelsea fans, whose club lies eleventh in the league and is without a manager after Graham Potter was sacked on Sunday.

The Blues could be in for a long night in Madrid next Wednesday.
