Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo was amongst the spectators at Santiago Bernabeu as Vinicius Jr. broke one of Lionel Messi long term record.
Vinicius Junior’s strike in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win against rivals Barcelona saw him replace Lionel Messi as the youngest Clasico goalscorer this century.
At the ripe age of 19 years, 233 days, Vinicius’ deflected shot in the 71st minute put Madrid ahead at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.
The diminutive forward eclipsed Barca superstar Messi, who was 26 days older when he scored his maiden Clasico goal in March 2007.
Messi was a peripheral figure as Madrid climbed above reigning champions Barca to the top of the table, with substitute Mariano Diaz completing a 2-0 victory.
