What makes things even more impressive is that Los Blancos have been without star-striker and Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema for a lot of those games. Youngsters Fede Valverde and Vinicius Junior have been used in attack and given more responsibility in the absence of Benzema with great success. The 22-year-old Vinicius is getting better and better the more he plays for Real and has grown in to a key member of the team playing on the left side of attack. In the La Liga standings, unbeaten Real are top of the table after 11 games on 31 points while in second place are rivals Barcelona with 28 points. When the top two sides facing each other on 16 October at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium it was Los Blancos who comfortably won the match 3-1. In an interview carried by Goal, Vinicius was asked where he saw himself in the future, he replied: "In Madrid. I'm sure I can keep playing here for a long time. "As much myself as the rest of the youngsters who are with us now: Camavinga, Rodrygo, Fede, Tchouameni, Militao… we have a very good squad now and it will be much better in three to four years' time." Vinicius pointed out. Vinicius was asked what had changed most since joining Real in May 2017 from Brazilian side Flamengo, he said: "I think in many aspects, especially because of my age. "I arrived when I was 18 years old, I had just started playing in the first team for Brazil and arrived here at the biggest club in the world, where it is difficult to play, and with these fans… but as time has gone by, I have been improving every day and now I am the best version of myself. "I hope not to stop here, and to continue to evolve in order to do great things," he added.
