On Thursday, Vinicius Junior scored his first hat-trick for Real Madrid as Levante was smashed 6-0 at the Bernabeu.
The result ensured Levente’s relegation from La Liga at the end of the season, while widening the gap between Real Madrid and Barcelona to 12 points.
Real Madrid’s first three goals came from Ferland Mendy, Karim Benzema, and Rodrygo before Vinicius stole the show.
Vinicius played with Jorge Miramon and Jose Luis Morales before eluding them with a one-two with Luka Modric for his first goal. That freed up space on the left side of Levante’s penalty box for the Brazilian, who finished smartly from a tight angle.
Vinicius’ second goal of the game will be one of the simplest of his career, but Benzema’s exquisite assist will be remembered. The French striker danced around goalkeeper Dani Cardenas before delivering the ball to Vinicius, who could not miss.
His hat-trick came with eight minutes remaining in the game. Luka Jovic found Vinicius, who dashed between Miramon and Sergio Postigo before beating Cardenas with his less-than-ideal left foot.
Vinicius celebrated his hat-trick by imitating Cristiano Ronaldo as best he could.
