Vinicius will play his 19th consecutive game for Real Madrid against Sevilla on Sunday.
The 21-year-old has started 41 of Los Blancos’ 46 games this season. Only Thibaut Courtois (44), Eder Militao and David Alaba (42 each) have been in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting line-up on more occasions, according to AS.
He is the fourth player with the most minutes played in the Madrid squad this season. Vinicius has gone from being a promising young player in Ancelotti’s squad to one of Real Madrid’s most important players, scoring 17 goals and providing 13 assists this season, numbers that few predicted for the Brazilian at the start of 2021/22.
