Real Madrid’s teenage Brazilian duo, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, sent them top of LaLiga, as both scored in a 2-0 victory over Osasuna on Wednesday night.

Vinicius ended a goal drought which had dragged on since February, with a deflected effort in the first half from the edge of the box.

Manager Zinedine Zidane started a heavily rotated XI with Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois all on the bench.

After missing several chances, Vinicius opened scoring in the 35th minute with a deflected effort.

Rodrygo, who arrived in the summer from Santos, finally gave Real their second.

Real Madrid climbed to the top of the standings with 14 points from six games, one point and one place ahead of Atletico Madrid, whom they face on Saturday in the derby at the Wanda Metropolitano.
