Saturday’s La Liga fixture between Osasuna and Real Madrid was another match where Vinicius Jr was at the centre of everything.
The 22-year-old had several big chances to score, but failed to do so until netting Real Madrid’s second in the 89th minute, before VAR ruled it out for offside. However, he did set up Federico Valverde’s opener in Pamplona.
Vinicius was also involved in several on-field fracases, and had a heated exchange with Moi Gomez just before the half time whistle, for which both players received yellow cards.

That wasn’t the only time that the Brazilian vented his anger during the game. Darko Brasanac appeared to catch him in the face with an elbow just after the half hour mark, and he furiously complained to the referee. According to Sport, Vinicius told the referee: “Son of a b****, go grab your a**.”
Despite the multiple incidents, Real Madrid came away with victory to move to within five points of Barcelona in the La Liga title race, and they now look forward to the first leg of their Champions League last 16 against Liverpool on Tuesday.
Match goes not according to plans?
Cheapshot Vini when ref doesnt look.
Oh its for fixing results, dont even worry about it calling. Never has so far, never will. Tebas is too busy getting his pockets filled by UEFA to oppose Super League, he wont interfere.
On a frank note, Mr Tebas shouldn’t take Vinicius’ racist case, a joking affair. By and by, it could cause harm to the Spanish football, if drastic action is not implemented at once. Wake up Mr Tebas please.
