Speaking to Movistar+ after Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Elche on Saturday, Carlo Ancelotti praised Vinicius after scoring a brace.
“We controlled much of the game but we know the game doesn’t finish until the referee blows the final whistle.
“Vinicius scored two fantastic goals and keeps his great run of form going.
“Mariano played very well too I thought and set up Vinicius for his first goal.”
Vinicius’ brace moves Madrid onto 24 points and sends Los Blancos back to the top of the La Liga table.
