Vinicius Jr injury update: when will he be back for Real Madrid?
Real Madrid will not force Vinicius Jr to rush back from injury and have already pencilled in a potential return date for the winger.
Real Madrid are, for now, surviving without Vinicius. They did so against Celta Vigo, the day the Brazilian got injured, thanks to a goal from Bellingham, and they did it again against Getafe at the Bernabu with a again from the Englishman, as well as Joselu.
The Brazilians muscular problem, which will keep him out of action for another five weeks, sent nerves tingling in the shiny new Bernabu due to doubts about how the team was to survive without its top scorer (last year he bagged 23 goals, only 8 less than Benzema, who is now in Saudi Arabia). But for now, Madrid are pushing on with the season while they await his return.
