Update Vinícius and Thibaut Courtois lead Real Madrid to 2-0 win at Levante
#1

Real Madrid needed another goal from Vinícius Júnior and Thibaut Courtois's goalkeeping to secure a 2-0 win at Levante in the Spanish league on Sunday.

For a second straight game, Vinícius once again led his team in attack by scoring in the first half. Courtois protected the advantage when Levante pushed for an equalizer before Karim Benzema scored Madrid's second goal on the final kick of the match.

The 20-year-old Vinícius has always impressed with his speed and daring to take on rivals one-on-one since his arrival at the Spanish powerhouse from Brazil in 2018.

His goal at Levante showed he can — when he has time — finish with class. A corner kick from Luka Modric was cleared by the Levante defense, only to fall to Vinícius unmarked on the left side of the box. Vinícius was left alone to gather the ball in, pick his spot and curl a right-footed shot inside the far post in the 16th minute.

Vinícius had played the full 90 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad to start the league and was an unused substitute in Madrid’s second match, a 3-2 win over Real Betis. That led fans to wonder if coach Zinedine Zidane had lost some confidence in his young player.
