Vinicius is out of it. I remember that in the first game of the season, in Vitoria, Ancelotti flanked Benzema with Bale and Hazard and it seemed reasonable. The previous year, neither Rodrygo nor Vinicius were great support for the Frenchman, who carried all the weight of the lead. Vinicius always did more than Rodrygo, out of daring, but he did not see the pass or the goal, he was blinded in the area. But that same day, when he left with half an hour to go, he scored a good goal with a header and, more significantly, he hit the mark in the final stretch of play. On the next visit, to Levante, scored two goals. Then it was learned that Ancelotti was giving him good advice to finish.
Between that and the fact that Hazard continues as before, he regained his position and now weighs as much in the team as Benzema. In the absence of this, as he is already going with France he will have to rest from time to time, yesterday he had to resolve the match and he did. In his two goals, he showed off what he did not have and already has: coldness to define. The first with a low shot, crossed, well calculated; the second biting on Casilla’s badly calculated start, which gave himself a little. He already has 7 goals in LaLiga and 2 in the Champions League. In all the past course he did 4 and 2, respectively. And those of now are not rebound goals, like those that characterized him, but safe shots.
Madrid won for him, it must be said that clearly, because of how accurate he was. That was lacking for Elche, who played better, managed the game and looked well into the area, with dangerous combinations of Pastore and the two Lucas, but the shot failed him. Life was also complicated giving away the ball for the first goal on an outing, and then suffered the expulsion of Raúl Guti with a lot of game ahead for a fair second card that should not make us forget that the first was not so fair. When he finally caught his goal (a gift between Kroos and Casemiro) it was too late. This Elche deserved more, but Vinicius is as is and left them without points.
