Madrid claimed a statement win over Girona (4-0) and took a five-point lead over the Catalans, who suffered a painful defeat in part to Vinicius, who scored one goal and set up two, one for Bellingham and the other for Rodrygo.
The Brazilian, who stole the show for 'Los Blancos', spoke to the club's official channels and did not hide his satisfaction after achieving a key victory for the 'Merengues' interests: "It was one of the best games of the season. We've done everything the coach has asked of us, that's what makes the difference. When the team wants to, it's very difficult for anyone to beat us. We played against a difficult team but we have to keep going like this because there's still a lot of La Liga left".
On the other hand, Vinicius addressed Bellingham's performance, who scored two goals and had to leave due to injury. "Bellingham is the best player this season, he is doing very well and we are very happy, we are a family. We are more united than ever and we have to continue in this vein to win great things," he said.
Regarding his goal, this is what the Brazilian had to say: "I don't normally shoot from outside the area, but I was confident because I couldn't play in the last game. I'm very happy, but we have to rest and think about Tuesday.
Finally, Vinicius, who highlighted the role of Carvajal and Tchouameni as centre-backs in the face of the defensive shortcomings, wanted to thank the Madrid fans for their ovation. "I'm happy to play here and to wear this shirt. I hope the president allows me to stay here for a long time", he concluded.Read on besoccer.com
