Real Madrid got the better of the Arabian champion after beating them convincingly with Fede Valverde, Vinicius Jr., and Karim Benzema on the scoresheet and Al Hilal’s Vietto scored a brace to make the game interesting.
Vinicius is instrumental to Real Madrid’s success after the Brazilian superstar showed a glimpse of his capability on the biggest stages previously and was at it again during the Final held in Morocco.
“Vinicius has been improving since last season just as the team has also grown. We won the Champions League and now the world title, and Vinicius has grown along the way,” Carlo Ancelotti said in the post-match press conference.
