Five minutes of pure madness follow. Sergio Canales, very prominent on Saturday, brings his people up to Madrid (17th). Vinicius (18th) and Alaba (20th) did not find the target. Aurélien Tchouaméni (20th), the French midfielder, stumbles on Rui Silva, author of a breathtaking parade. Benzema (21st), then Vinicius (42nd) are countered in extremis.

Constantly taking depth, Vinicius Junior (22) took advantage of a mischievous stall by Karim Benzema to repeat a new vertical run. He deceived Rui Silva, the doorman of the Green and White, with a sublime lob (9th), bringing his counter to 2 achievements since the start of the season. He nevertheless made a hole in the 18th minute, on a superb serve from his compatriot Rodrygo and continued his attempts, without shaking the net a second time.


French world champion Nabil Fekir (29) was injured in the 11th minute. The tricolor international held his thigh after a questionable contact in the area with Daniel Carvajal, the Madrid right side.
