Real Madrid secured a major victory over Borussia Dortmund and won the Champions League for the 15th time after Vinicius Junior scored the second goal of the match, beating Lionel Messi’s record.

The Brazilian forward has been central to the Los Blancos’ winnings in the Champions League in recent seasons which helped in climbing the ladders of excellence and fame in the realm of football.

Eventually, the 23-year-old forward is now rubbing shoulders with Inter Miami’s Lionel Messi as one of the best players of European club football.

After Real Madrid’s second goal, Vinicius nets in the knockout stages of the club football reached 11, with the same number of assists.

According to a sports statistics company Opta, Vinicius Junior participated in direct 22 goals for Real Madrid and is now at par with the Argentine’s record for the most nets and assists in the knockout stages of the tournament by any striker before age 24.

After winning the titles, the Brazilian is now hoping to secure the best player award of the Ballon d’Or.
As Copa America is set to kick off this month, Vinicius will be playing for Brazil.
