Vini, you can commit to that celebration with more heart.
He must be fckin tired of all that running its understandable.
I feel like his confidence is weighting him down, such a sad thing to see in a player. Immediately after he made an assist he started running
What does this even mean about the confidence part?
He’s saying he’s got so much confidence that it’s making it harder to run. It’s a joke.
I think he meant the opposite, that he forces himself to run like hell because he thinks he's not good enough.
Its a joke but in a sence it could be the truth. I gihly doubt he ks not interested. He has 0 confidence and that's why he runs like his legs were cut off.
Levante so bad, dude cant even enjoy it
I'd rather he doesn't, you have to be as stacked as Ronaldo to not pull a muscle or dislocate a bone, lol
Levante gave them a guard of honour and this is how Madrid repay them
Honestly it felt a bit bad - this sends levante down and theyre a club that i do like. They're filthy shithousers 3
They got to see vini do the suii tho. They also witnessed modric masterclass and were in the presence of lord mariano and lord vazquez. Thats as big of a gift as it gets imo
>They got to see vini do the suii tho.
Lol mate this is embarrassing.
It's, Christa Ronaldo, SEWEY.
Simple as that, bro.
Where's this from?
One of Luka's assists there made me jizz my pants
Treating the opponents with respect by actually going in
Anything else would actually be disrespectful.
Vinicius with 41 G+A in his age 21 season. Unreal
Holy shit that’s insane
Before this season I said 20G+A would be a good to great season for him
Boy was it a good season
More than a double good season!
He's doing double great!
Such an underappreciated series.
Double plus good
Double plus good!
I predicted 30 g+a season
I mean, you were right
Really surprised me. Ruthless when he gets around the box. And he well help Benzema age beautifully.
His insane season is one of the reasons why Benzema ks having an even better season than last season. He has someone assisting him from wings now
Must feel great right now for those who defended him all those years and were convinced he's some improved finishing away from becoming world class.
I think everyone agreed he was world class except for his end product, both in assists and goals.
I remember having a conversation with someone a year back on here where I said I hoped he'd improve that but didn't see it happening, the other guy was sure he would. happy to be wrong.
Praying Traore gets better at finishing too. Oh what monster he'd be
The most of any under 21 player in the planet this season.
Haaland had 60 G+A last season
Haaland is obviously a monster, but you also have to take into consideration how more attack orientated the Bundesliga is.
It's absolutely a joke how leaky defenses are in the Bundesliga. By contrast, La Liga is the most defensive league by far.
Haaland will probably be a monster for City, the kid is absolute class (when fit). But I think the above is important context.
Yea but he said this season lol. And haaland is a striker, vini a winger, not really a goalscoring one as well
Vini is definitely a goal scoring - playmaking hybrid judging by this season
Sorta, more of a playmaking and is more of a pass first typa player rn. Hopefully he continues his goalscoring levels of this season and more though!
I mean hes playing with Benz lol. You'd be a fool not to have a pass first mentality playing alongside him
He has the cunning of Neymar. The speed and talent of Ronaldo and a smile that reminds me of dinho. He looks like he's enjoying himself all the time it's so precious.
Love the kid tons
41 goals +12 assists < 60
Neymar got 15G 15A at the same age for Barcelona. (Fewer minutes tho)
2nd season? 39G 11A (!) - let's see if Vini has it in him 😎
I don't see Vini becoming as good as Neymar at all even though I think he'll be a top top player.
That was Neymar’s highest ever tally in his professional career. Think Vini will be more consistent and I’m happy if he can bang out 40G+A year after year
Yeaahhh that would be elite or world class levels, especially if actually MAINTAINED year-on-year
If Vini can give us 40G+A for even five years straight, he will have been a massive success.
Yeah, peak Neymar was something else. So that wouldn’t be a bad thing.
That said, players develop at different rates, and he’s got a lot of Neymar traits, and if he keeps working hard and making this kinda progress, there’s always a chance. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Different play styles. He can be better than Neymar for sure.
Also, availability matters. Vini has been playing for us for 4 years now, only had 1 bad injury. With Neymar we know his issues.
How can you be a top top player and not be close to Neymar at all lmao
Neymar is one of if not the best player of his generation and has been playing top level football and doing exceptionally, look at what he was doing with santos as a kid (younger than Vini) and has been an important and priceless player in all the teams he's played at, he's the best in the world on several occasions especially his time at Barcelona when Messi was injured and he was carrying the team. He's on of the best international performing players in the world if not the outright best, he's set to break Pele's goal record for Brazil for god's sake! The guy is a massive great in football history
Next season will show if this year was a fluke or if he can regularly reach 40+ G+A per season. He has already surpassed Neymar's numbers aged 21, but he has been at Madrid longer so it's harder to compare.
Also more than half of Neymar's goals for Brazil were in friendlies and he has never won a proper title for the national team so he's not even close to Pele in that regard lmao.
Overperforming his xG and xA, but both are still great as well!
People were saying he is a flop last year
Its "only" 37. Transfermarkt counts pens won as assists.
penalty won is a better assist than 90% of assists
As they should
annoying to admit, but he's a fucking joy to watch.
People were legit saying we should get rid of him last season
Some Twitter "ITK"s say it's gonna be more like a 4-4-2. It was apparently the plan for this season, but Mbappé ended up staying:
that how it should be, no doubt
Mbappe first season for PSG at RWF 13 goals 8 Assists
Hits blunt thrice
Lool don’t be a footballing mentor.
He isnt going to play RW tho as per reports. Its either mbappe st/rw
Not happening luckily for us, mbappe has no problem playing anywhere in the front 3
or maybe he plays as a super sub like rodrygo this season
would be a waste and honestly don't think vini would be ok with it after this season
such a deserved first hattrick vamosss, used his left as well finally
Nearly half his goals are left footed
didnt know that because a lot of the times it looks like hes forcing it to his right instead of shooting with his left, though hes obviously improved a lot at using his weak foot this season too
He isn't good at finishing with his left footed laces, but his side foot finishing has become quite reliable with his left this season
Thats the deep analysis I look for on here.
Exactly he's not that bad with his left
his left footed shots are prob short ranged like this one
Yeah he has alot of goals like this one this season
Correct me if I'm wrong but this is his first ever hattricks for Real Madrid. Should be first of many...
Yes his first. He missed his first against the same Levante when their GK aitor took red for professional handball foul.
Yes many braces but 1st hattrick
Dont remember any hat trick for us. So I think it's the first in his career
what a season! A vini hattrick after all he went through these seasons
All he went through? You mean living a luxury life?
His first hattrick VAMOS
Damn, this is some CR7 Era scoring from us.
With the left winger scoring a hattrick, Modric masterclass and benz unselfish as usual. Brings back memories.
Helps that Levante puts up a Bordeaux-performance tonight, horrible defending, horrible goalkeeping
Horrible goalkeeping!? We would've scored 3 more if not for their keeper
He let in at least two in the near post. Considering the number of shots he faced he was bound to save some of them
Yeah even in this goal he kinda missed the near post. Defender seems to cover alright on the far post and it was on vini’s weaker foot so why not cover near post
Nah that man did his absolute best put an average keeper out there we score 9
That's a crazy username....
Don't know about horrible goalkeeping really, if it wasn't for him Levante would've conceded at least 5 more
Madrid's LW hitting the suiii. Tears in my eyes
This result is very very very flattering for Levante. Could've been easily 12+
It’s easy to forget just how memed he was only one year ago, probably the best breakthrough season I’ve ever seen.
To be honest he was fairly memed last two seasons. He was extremely selfish and always wanted to do cool tricks and his finishing was atrocious. Don't know what Ancelotti did to him now he's extremely fast, doesn't overshow his abailities and has decent finishing.
Ancelotti is one of the most experienced coaches so he knows how to unlock any player.
From underperforming his xG+A in last 3 season to be better and overperforming, that his G+A about double than those seasons *combined*.
Hopefully first of many Hat-tricks for us.
Brazil is counting on you. We love you, Vini!
coming from a palmeiras fan? damn, vini has come a long way
Probably because he didn't hang a season or two more
Crista ronaldo seweey, simple as that bro
Anyone got the origin for "seweey"
I know SIUU, and i assume its because he spins around instead of the single half spin. Just wondering where the word came from.
this is amazing
I really wonder what that guy is actually like, sometimes he seems legitimately crazy.
YouTube keeps suggesting his videos for me and yeah American streamers like him are definitely something
It’s actually SIIII don’t know where people got the U from. Siu doesn’t mean anything in either Spanish or Portoguese.
I don't care how childish it is, seweyyyy makes me piss myself
Nowadays you gotta have some things that make you happy :)
So so happy for his first Hattrick! You deserve it you beautiful brazilian
The stadium was fully ready for it
His turn of speed is so crazy
LETS GOOOO VINI so happy for him!
Hope he plays like this in the CL final
You all hate Liverpool, don’t you? Lol
I wouldn’t be rooting for city either if they were in the final instead of Liverpool
It's such a simple logic, why would anyone support other team from the same league in CL, unless it's an underdog story or something. Idk why it's so difficult for some people to get
Can’t wait for vini against trent
People are acting as if TAA would put Walker Level defending against us.
Vini ripped him to shreds last year too lmfao and he’s even better now
Nobody is saying that but Liverpool fans
What, really? I'm pretty sure that most of our fans would agree with me that we're really gonna rely on Henderson tracking back out wide to help contain Vini Jr.
Well i have seen Spurs,Chelsea and City fans talking about how Benzema is the only better player in Real Madrid compared to Liverpool. Some even said depth is our weakness while players like Camavinga and Rodrygo being massive game changers so far from the bench.
PL fanboys hate Madrid so obviously they will downplay Madrid and praise any PL team in CL.
Its not just PL fanboys. Barca fans also. In their heads when Madrid wins its “just luck”. I remember Barca fans spewing “UCL is all about luck”.
PL fans think their FIFA rating is actually accurate to real life lmao.
Not many full backs can deal with Vini at all
Trent is honestly incredible lately I every aspect expect for speed... Which you might imagine how it would be against a rocket like vini
I swear even Liverpool fans were slandering him last week against Spurs for delivering 100 cross that did absolutely nothing.
The final is a different beast and hopefully Trent rises to the occasion. I don't think anyone was expecting Lovren to shut out Ronaldo in the last final but he had a fantastic game. I just hope everyone comes in fit so we can see two full strength teams fight it out
Can't wait for Diaz vs Carvajal
That one depends on if we get Carva from the last few weeks, or Carva from 2 months ago. I hope he won't lose his form because he doesn't play right now.
Not nearly as scary as you think
Honestly the guy is good if you actually watched him a lot specially during copa America. He works hard, tricky, has pace and completely unpredictable. On current form he is better than salah.
Diaz is the Liverpool player I fear the most tbh :P
Whenever I've watched you guys play, Diaz has been playing so good.
Don't hold your breath
How many goals has he scored this season ?
21 in all comps
Levante has just given up at this point
Trent ain't ready for Vini
With the left!! Finally.
He scored with his left against Espanyol
He finally has his hattrick!! Been absolutely unbelievable this season!!
Vini watches ishowspeed confirmed
A fucking rout, it's been so long.
The growth of Vini has been amazing. The real new 7 after all.
I was here
Vini with the siuuu!
Serious question barca fans. Do you think dembélé is better than vini?
Better in speaking french nothing more
And even that is a maybe lmao
As a Barca fan No he's not
I'm asking cause Soria and jota in El chiringuito said dembélé RIGHT now is top 10 in the world. No mention of vini or mane or salah. Players who play same positions ish. I kinda laughed really but was wondering what the fans thought
Anything that comes out of Soria’s mouth can be disregarded immediately
He’s nowhere near his level. Not a Barca fan though, Vini has better stats than Mane this season.
Edit: Vinicius has way more impact on the game than both Dembele and Mane
not even in the same league lmao vini is top 4 wingers this season
Dembele has been an assists monster but same story for Vini Jr while also scoring lots of goals. Should be a no brainer really.
Madrid fan. I say no for now, but I think he can be as good
Trent is in for a surprise.
What surprise? He got slaughtered last year
That composure and finishing thoooo
I knew Vini was going to end wit a hat trick one way or another.
His logarithmic breakthrough in such a short time (one season) is amazing! Most improved player in the world, from meme player to boss player. So happy
Exponential breakthrough you mean? Logarithmic growth is very slow
this guy maths
Yes that, got confused between the two and didn't wanna Google it. You're right
Makes the game look like slow motion. Class young player with an exciting future
Trent is so fucked man
Veni Vidi Vici !
Threw a derby to murder Levante, lol
Yeah this kid terrifies me
I know Levante's outfield players aren't quite on their A game tonight, but that GK certainly doesn't help either. He is absolutely awful, has the positioning of a player that doesn't look like he is a regular goalkeeper. Why does Aitor Fernandez not play anymore?
The goalkeeper is the sole reason they didn't concede double figures, I've no idea what you're on about.
