Idc man Lewandowski prop makes me happy. Even though Benzema isn't winning the Balon D'or, it's only fair if Lewa wins it.


PepsiColaMirinda

Apparently [Benz has not won the BD'or](https://www.instagram.com/p/CW3BxcPIZf4/?utm_medium=copy_link) this time due to a lack of titles with club. Sauce is JFD. I wonder if that means Messi doesn't win either,for the same reason. I can live with RL9 winning it,hell I'm all for it if Benz is out of the running. **Text in link:** >Benzema has not won the Ballon D’or. Real Madrid believed Benzema's great year would have been recognised but the fact he didn't win titles (with the club) has influenced the verdict. Source: @jfelixdiaz via @madridxtra_ Edit: Just remembered Messi won the CDR. I swear to god if that Championship equivalent gets him the trophy....


DenevoVerano

I was thinking, how would Militao be rated if he wasn’t with us and was a potential signing for top teams? Like say he was playing for Real Sociedad or Napoli or something, at the same level he is rn for us. Where would he rank among the list of top defenders you always hear people say they wanna sign, you know like Pau Torres, Kounde, Skriniar, De ligt, etc.


Medium_Breadfruit_22

He'd definitely be rated as a top 10 cb.but im happy hes being underrated for now. Ofc he deserves more recognition but he'd be under crazy amount of pressure if he was known as a top 5-10 cb.


ProudhPratapPurandar

He was highly rated at porto, that's why we bought him in the first place


SamplePurple252

Camavinga really changed the game when he came on yesterday. Getting better and better each week


FiniciusJunior

I don’t like him on the RCM though, he looks forced and awkward there


paing997

Real Madrid have lost **2 home** games in all competitions since 28th November 2020, a year ago. The 2 losses were against Sheriff and Levante ( 10 men)


Annoyed__123

Imagine dealing with this team on the counter: Vini-haaland-mbappe Cama-casemiro-fede Mendy-militao-alaba-hakimi No way teams are playing open against this they will all park the mother of all buses


zappy69

I think carvajal doesn't trust cama at all, he will even pass the ball back to courtois but wont give it to cama


flae99

Mendy x Vinicius vibes. He'll get more comfortable.


Unlikely_Road7922

It's not that deep. Carvajal just wasn't having a good game and preferred to make a safe back pass instead of giving it to the 19y/o new signing who's playing on his opposite foot.


mirceafl

I loved seeing Alaba going forward in the last couple of games. Reminds of Capi or Marcelo coming to help building up an attack. Him, Mendy and Vini overloading the left flank is basically our best tactic against low blocks right now


PepsiColaMirinda

Missed the match,but reading people's reactions to the Vini goal both here and on r/soccer put such a big dumbass grin on my face. 😂❤️ Vini is Madridismo,he bleeds white,he has the mentality and talent, and he has put in the work. The CR7 method, through and through. The ~~boy~~ man deserves this and more. ⚪👑⚪


boringboi_

I have seen people compare defensive stats for Ronaldo and Messi. Do VVD and Ramos next with attacking stats


DauntlessAxiss

Then they'll start saying that defenders don't need to attack


RawSauceBoi

I got all emotional watching Ramos play for psg. Fuck this hurts so much


mateoidontknow

Worried about Benzema and Vini starting to complete against each other for pichichi and stop passing to each other therefore affecting the team


PepsiColaMirinda

Ignoring the dependency already in play, I have question. How long have you been watching Real? Because Benzema is not selfish. Not ever,over the past decade and through what would've been his "prime". Stands to reason he will not have such a selfish line of thought; and even if he does,that's okay. He deserves that much. As for the Vini side,while he's impressing everyone he is a humble player and he respects Benz too much to do it I think. Might be wrong,but yeah.


los_blanco_14

Without benz , vini will score less. Without vini, benz can still score. Vini needs benz more than benz needs vini. Vini has to pass. And benz is unselfish af.


FiniciusJunior

I think Barcelona fans expect us to be really salty when and if Messi wins the Ballon D’or ...little do they know we don’t care


PepsiColaMirinda

It's not so much Messi winning the BD'or that bothers me; it's the fucking fans. They'll keep clinging to that and pushing it into everyone's faces in every single discussion for the next year at least,maybe the next two if someone other than Ronaldo wins.


los_blanco_14

U would be suprised to know that Lot of ppl in the sub care.


_major_fuckin_tom_

Benzema > Henry Fuck off r/soccer


Annoyed__123

He was better in his prime for sure but benzema is better overall


los_blanco_14

Benzema>>> henry. Benz is bigger than all of the clubs henry has played for.


Lord_17_

Subtle dig at fc banterlona.


ProudhPratapPurandar

People tend to only remember the primes of old players. If you see overall career and longevity, benzema edges out Henry


not1yo2avg3person

vini is bigger than barca


not1yo2avg3person

how was my idol militao yesterday apart from that assist


Better-Call-Raul

Best/second best player.


InvoluntarySquint

Very good imo


Medium_Breadfruit_22

I feel bad for asensio. He's not a bad player and certainly not a bad person. But he simply isnt good enough to play at the level most madrid fans expect from an attacking player. He's too easy to defend against and isnt much help in pressing or tracking back.


met5abel

I feel quite the opposite mate, I feel he has an amazing touch, finish, cross and can dribble he just doesn’t have the mentality. If Asensio had Vinicius mentality he would’ve been a world beater by now.


KingEtame

Mentality is the only thing Asensio has. You can blame him for everything except working hard and persevering through challenges. He ruptured his ACL, came back hard, trains harder than anyone else, an needs to stretch before and after everyone else leaves. Yet here he is performing at top level while Jese who had the same injury is putting out Reggaeton albums. Don't disrespect him like that. He may not be Real quality anymore but he's a damn role model of perseverance if I've ever seen one.


met5abel

When Ronaldo left he said the veterans should step and that before his acl. That’s some weak mentality shit. I don’t see him giving his all on the pitch, even yesterday he was walking around. He’ll hazard puts more effort on the pitch than him.


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Dribble? Maybe a couple years ago.


met5abel

Literally beat 2 guys yesterday to set up a shot. Was dancing around again Granadas entire back line last week.


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Not much apart from that run and shot vs sevilla. We desperately need the right sided attacker to perform especially when vini gets marked by 2-3 players on the left. He was really non existent apart from that move.


met5abel

I know, I wanted him off by min 45. The point discussion isn’t if he is playing well, you said he is not talented, the talent is there the mentality is a different case. You could tell because after Ronaldo left they asked him if who’s going to step up and he was like the veterans. I bet you if they asked Vini he would’ve said I’ll do my best, or we all need to play a part. Asensio is satisfied being who he is.


Anti-Melticus

Remember when Tebas said Vini will be the face of Laliga and everyone laughed? You’re not laughing now are you


Anti-Melticus

One Barca fan reaction > Of all the yougsters he chose fucking vinicus 😂. Fati Pedri Kounde Valverde Joao Felix are all in his league but he chooses vinicius as the face of young talent. Loll


los_blanco_14

Fair play for him to include fede.


UnluckyPenalty2503

Vini gonna be on the cover of FIFA 23


M_MUNEEB

Vini and Benz holding hands🤍


Res3925

And Mbappe


Immediate_Evidence98

Hear me out. With Vini firmly entrenched and 🐢 on the way, coupled with our young midfielders and distributors from the back (militao and Alaba have shown recently). Our games are gonna look like track meets in the best possible way very soon.


happywannabe7

Vini + benze = win ez


The_Middle_Child_

Ayad3

Objectively speaking, who do you think got the loudest ultras in Spain?


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Probably betis or osasuna.

Vini 2021 YouTube compilation video is going to be INSANE!


SaambarDip

[Ronaldo goal which looked similar to Vinicius’ goal tonight](https://youtu.be/Mfmod84EYsU)


met5abel

Been saying since he was 18, Ronaldo was the same as Vini when he was you a pacer winger who can always beat his man but no product. Ronaldo become insane around 22.


m0dthispny

Wow. It’s identical


harry_filangi07

Correct me if I’m wrong but an eleven consisting of Ronaldo, BDB, KCM, Marcelo, capi, Varane, carvajal and keylor have never lost a UCL tie.


The420Roll

Courtois is so good. The best goalkeeper in the World tho Piqué deserves an honorable mention


Impressive-Seesaw218

I thought that Casemiro passed that ball to Vini. What a pass from Militão.


Res3925

*chef’s kiss*


Anti-Melticus

I feel like Mbappe would end up retiring as the best French men of all time, if he gets another WC.


Share4aCare

Man I had no idea Vini had that kinda shot in his shooting locker, I was ready to criticise his shooting form earlier in the match thread lol. Pays to bite your tongue sometimes.


InvoluntarySquint

Where is this video of Zidane celebrating Vini’s goal?

Nono, it does exist, in your heart.


SenZeyxx

Probably not


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Ive seen that vini shot like a 100 times. Its so beautiful.


Raven96__

People on soccer downvoted a guy to oblivion for saying prime Benzema > prime Henry. The numbers say it. Benzema offers a lot more than Henry.


drewmehedy

PL club fans think the football revolves around their club.


Mr_Hassel

Who can deny Benzema is better than Henry?? PL fanboys.


flae99

The funny thing is even most Barca fans I've seen rate Benzema ahead of him. They've always rated Benzema incredibly highly. It's just PL fanboys.


anass_sensei_desu

Benzema > Henry. But bro prime Henry was something else, better than prime Benz for sure.


KingEtame

I saw prime Henry, he was good. I'm not sure when or what's prime Benz, he keeps on getting better. Over their entire careers, Benzema is already way ahead in my books.


anass_sensei_desu

I saw them both, Benzema has a better career. But Henry in his prime was better.


SenZeyxx

Can Vini win the Potm for November??? Would love his Card for Fifa 22 😅😅😅😅. Plus got Otw Camavinga and he is getting an Upgrade


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Cant imagine the amount of relief benzema feels after carrying the attacking burden for 3 seasons alone now that vini is pitching in generously.


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Casemiro was our 2nd top scorer last season. 💀


SuspiciousMatin

Ramos the season before that


Mr_Hassel

Because he took all the pens.


IcefoxX5

Even without the pens he was our third best scorer after Benz and Rodrygo


Medium_Breadfruit_22

We were really in the slums


SuspiciousMatin

We won La Liga and the SuperCopa though. Defensively the team was excellent and they were able to grind games, even the big ones.


IcefoxX5

After Militãos assist, Marcelo and Vallejo are the only first team outfielders to feature for Real Madrid this season who haven't scored or assisted a goal


M_MUNEEB

Ceballos too.


drewmehedy

holy sh I forgot about him , is he still injured ?


Res3925

He just started training with the ball last week. He’ll probably rejoin the group soon for full training sessions.


KingEtame

We should do a tribute to Marcelo at the end of this season and thank him for unforgettable memories. Then let him go before the Bernabeu turns on him.


SenZeyxx

Mbappe liked Benz's insta Post. He wishes he could play with Vini and Benz and not waste his time with the midget and the diver


Mr_Hassel

Wellp the diver is gonna miss a few months so Mboppi will have to carry that team even harder.


Medium_Breadfruit_22

Actually its a win for psg. Di maria works harder and is equally effective as neymar. Mbappe can relax😈


Fly1ngsauc3r

> How can a team be as lucky as real madrid are. I will never wrap my mind around that 😂😂😂😂


Ayad3

Funny enough he conveniently forgot how his team won their match yesterday


Fly1ngsauc3r

Or the game against Benfica or the game against Espanyol


Hot-Spare5310

I have a feeling Zidane will be back it’s just when


Mr_Hassel

Some day. It will be France and then maybe he wil come back.


SenZeyxx

Vini's Trademark Calma Celebration is so cold 🥶🥶🥶


UnluckyPenalty2503

This goes to show that people shouldn’t give up on 20 year old talents. People on this sub memed Vini to death and some even hated him. Vini has shut up all his haters and is probably the best LW itw rn


Anti-Melticus

I mean who else is close to him as a LW rn?


Mr_Hassel

Probably no, he is 100% the best LW in Europe at the moment.


Radinax

People here were shit talking him on the match thread


Shreeansh_Gupta

Madrid fans who don’t appreciate Courtois aren’t Madrid fans. Just spitting facts


SenZeyxx

There isn't 1 Madrid Fan out there, who doesn't appreciate Courtois. He was only hated in his first season really


Shreeansh_Gupta

Tell this to that cat person who said Courtois doesn’t know how to play ball with his feet or whatever in this thread when people were saying why isn’t Courtois in top 5 keepers nominated


Immediate_Evidence98

Cat person is a closeted Barca fan


SuspiciousMatin

Beginning of 2019/20 too


drewmehedy

Everything changed after 2019/20 club brugge game at bernanbeu when zizou subbed courtois for areola, for whatever reason this is, after that, courtois slowly began to show what he actually is.

His brazilian Obsession finally paid off


Better-Call-Raul

Vini’s goal was obviously incredible, but he badly needs rest. Would prefer Rodrygo at LW against Athletic midweek. A fresh Vini would be vital against La Real next week.


Radinax

Rodrygo has the shits sadly


Mr_Hassel

Vini can play every damn game. He is 21 years old. He is a beast.


Res3925

That’s what people said about Pedri last season and look how that’s going.


Jaegaremix

He’s young, it’s easy to be burnt out when you’re young especially when the entire RM fan base is resulting on you. Rodrygo also needs some game time as well.


Mr_Hassel

He can play for EVEEEEEEEEER


M_MUNEEB

No need to turn Vini into game merchant Pedri.

Courtois with the save of the month by far what a player


Impressive-Seesaw218

Vini and Benz literally statpadding at this point

Can't forget the best GK in the world! Tibo saved our asses tonight


TimothyX7

❗Karim Benzema (11) and Vinícius Júnior (9) have scored more LaLiga goals combined (20) this season than 13 other *teams* in the division. Benz with the equaliser, Vini with the winner. 🇫🇷 x 🇧🇷 💥


SenZeyxx

Even though Vini played horrible for 85mins. You still don't sub him out, because this season he is important to us badly


InternationalTop4

A) Vini was knackered with trying to get rid of his marker in Montiel. Props to Montiel for an absolutely incredible game he played. B) That late in the game it's a nice confidence booster to get a standing ovation from the Bernabeu


Jaegaremix

I’ve only said this about one man before…

Definitely Mariano.
