As expected, Vini, arguably Real Madrid’s best player this campaign, broke the game’s deadlock before Benzema turned the tie on its head with his three second-half goals.
But one moment of magic by the 22-year-old winger left an impression on most social media users. Vinicius Junior’s magic With the zippy winger closely marked by Jules Kounde, Vinicius allowed a pass from Eduardo Camavinga to slip through his legs which caught the Barcelona defender unaware.
He then swerved Kounde leaving him for dead with his blistering pace, before darting into the box and eventually setting up Asensio, whose effort was expertly parried away by Marc Andre Ter Stegen.
