Vinicius Jr. was the scorer of the first goal against Osasuna. The forward got his fifth goal for Real Madrid with a right-footed effort from outside the area. After the match, he said: “The players know that I was trying hard and there’s nothing better than getting back amongst the goals before a derby. It’s an honour to speak with Roberto Carlos and I’m happy because he congratulated me. I’m very happy to score again at the Bernabéu”.
“I’m excited because since my injury it’s been difficult, I was finding it hard playing again and I wasn’t doing well in games. I wasn't as happy as last season and it’s a massive weight off my shoulders. I’m very happy when I’m scoring goals”.
