Real Madrid coach Solari: Is Vinicius Junior ready for Barcelona?

Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari is tightlipped on his plans for the Copa del Rey clash with Barcelona.

After victory over Alaves, Solari was asked if he would play Vinicius Junior at Barca.

"I'm not going to tell you the team. Today he has done a great game, he has left with an ovation, he is responding very well, when he plays, in training ... We are delighted with his arrival and his projection.

"He always has the support of the senior players who take care of him and advise him," said the coach.
