Vinicius Junior delighted to prove Real Madrid matchwinner

Real Madrid matchwinner Vinicius Junior was pleased with his goal in victory over Real Valladolid.

The Brazilian came off the bench to score the only goal of the game as Los Blancos beat Real Valladolid on Wednesday night.

Thibaut Courtois made a number of good saves to keep the scores level before Vinicius' goal and maintain Real Madrid's lead afterwards.

"We're happy with the win because it was a tough game," Vinicius told Movistar at full time.

"The first half was difficult, but the team changed in the second and we got control of the game.

"It was important to keep winning.

"We knew that if we kept a clean sheet, we're going to win for sure because we have lots of people that can score goals in attack.

"We'll improve as the season goes on."
