Vinicius in pursuit of Benzema for the Pichichi award

  /  autty

Vinicius Junior's goal against Real Sociedad on Saturday was his tenth in LaLiga Santander and only his teammate Karim Benzema has netted more times than the Brazilian forward this season.

Real Madrid are the only team across the five major European leagues to already have two players in double scoring digits, with the two men having mustered a combined 22 league goals thus far.

Vinicius has scored a total of 12 goals in 22 duels across all competitions and he has also provided his teammates with eight assists in this first half of the campaign.

After joining Real Madrid in 2018, Vinicius struggled in front of goal and lacked a finishing touch in his first three seasons. In fact, he scored 14 times in 2020/21 and he can match this tally by bagging another two goals in the coming games.
