Vinicius Junior made Angel Correa look very, very silly with a beautiful piece of skill during the Madrid derby.
The Brazilian starred as Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 to extend their lead at the top of La Liga on Sunday.
Goals from Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio ensured victory for Carlo Ancelotti’s side as they move eight points clear of Sevilla.
Vinicius created both goals, setting up Benzema for the opening goal in the 16th minute before picking out Asensio in the 57th minute.
The 21-year-old was a menace all night for Diego Simeone’s team, creating the most chances in the match (four).
He also produced a moment of magic that made Correa glitch during the game.
In the second half, Vinicius sent Correa tumbling to the floor with a simple yet superb side step.
The Argentinean tried to track down the Real man, but found himself crashing down in an embarrassing moment.
