He didn't get on the score-sheet but the Brazilian phenom was unplayable, casually destroying Godin and Giménez in separate moments.

A Twitter user has uploaded his highlights from Saturday's game accompanied with the caption: "Vinicius is fearless going at Godin and Jimenez. This is just the beginning for him."

Despite still being a teenager, he's becoming a vital member for Santiago Solari who revealed Vinicius Junior has been affected by the recent Flamengo tragedy.

A fire broke out at the clubs training ground, tragically killing 10 people.

"I insist, it's something very sad, especially for the families who are affected for whom we want to send them our thoughts and our condolences."
