Vinicius Junior has produced a moment of magic to open the scoring for Real Madrid against Manchester City.
The Champions League semi-final first leg tie burst into life when the Brazilian forward scored a stunning goal.
Eduardo Camavinga, who’s operating at left-back, created an opening on the wing before driving with the ball.
He picked out Vinicius Jr, who let the ball role to his right foot before unleashing a thunderous strike into the back of the net.
