Vinicius starts for a youthful Real Madrid against CSKA Moscow, with a Champions League last-16 place already in the bag.
Madrid sewed up Group G with 2-0 win at Roma last time out, so Vinicius finally gets a chance to impress in their attack, alongside fellow youngsters Jesus Vallejo, Javi Sanchez, Marcos Llorente and Federico Valverde.
However, Thibaut Courtois stays in goal as Santiago Solari opts against rotation between the sticks, with the Belgian once more preferred to Keylor Navas.
CSKA, meanwhile, cannot qualify for the knockouts but are competing with Viktoria Plzen for access to the Europa League round of 32 and did beat Los Blancos 1-0 earlier in the season.
