Carvajal praises Vinicius Junior after Real Madrid Copa win

Real Madrid are into the Copa del Rey quarterfinals after a 4-0 win at Real Zaragoza on Wednesday night.

The starting XI of head coach Zinedine Zidane saw the inclusions of Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez in attack, plus James Rodriguez running things in midfield, while Luka Jovic slotted in as the centre-forward.

Raphael Varane and Lucas Vazquez gave Los Blancos a two-goal lead by half-time before Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema sealed the win with second-half strikes.

Afterwards, Real fullback Dani Carvajal admits he expects even more from Vinicius.

"I see him every day, he's capable of doing that and much more," Carvajal told Mediaset post-match.

"Let him gain a lot of confidence and keep scoring in the games to come."
