25 Aug Celta Vigo 0-1 Real Madrid (Aug 25, 2023) Game Analysis – ESPN
The 20-year-old once again led the Spanish giants’ attack, scoring for the fourth time in his first three league games following Rodrygo‘s missed penalty earlier in the second half.
Real were dealt an early blow as Brazilian forward Vinicius Jr was forced off with a leg problem after 15 minutes, a notable loss for Carlo Ancelotti’s side that comes on top of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Eder Militao’s injuries.
Rodrygo had a golden chance to earn Real the lead in the 68th minute with a penalty after keeper Ivan Villar tripped him in the box. However, Villar redeemed himself as he dived to his right to keep out the Brazilian forward’s spot kick.
