The Brazilian winger will be a threat in Sunday's Clasico at the Bernabeu
Even though there’s a final against Inter Milan on Wednesday, Barcelona are thinking about the Clasico too, next Sunday. The leaders vs second place, both unbeaten domestically. The Catalans are ahead on goal difference, that’s the only thing between them. And as ever, there is worry about Vinicius Junior.
The Brazilian is a weapon on Madrid's left flank. Barcelona kept him quiet with Ronald Araujo in the last Clasico, a 4-0 win for the Catalans at the Bernabeu. Without the Uruguayan and with Kounde injured still, it could end up being Alejandro Balde there.
