Barcelona coach Valverde ready to face Real Madrid whiz Vinicius Junior

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has had his say on Vinicius Junior.

The in-form teen is expected to start tonight for Real Madrid against Barca in the first-leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal.

"He has confidence, he is young, he is fast and dares to challenge his opponent," said Valverde.

Before adding: "He is progressing very well, doing important things for Real Madrid."

Real coach Santiago Solari, meanwhile, was coy about whether would start tonight.
