Vinicius Junior gave Real Madrid the superior finish

Vinicius Junior gave Real Madrid the superior finish that RB Leipzig lacked to earn a 2-1 aggregate victory in the round of 16. This allowed Real Madrid to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Similar to the previous match, Vinicius’s goal with 25 minutes remaining gave German side Leipzig a 2-0 lead after they had a string of missed opportunities.

Three minutes later, Leipzig’s captain Willi Orban headed in a chance that was finally taken advantage of.

The Bundesliga team’s confidence was restored by the goal, and they went on to put pressure on the league leaders in Spain in their pursuit of an equaliser.

Dani Olmo, a former Barcelona player, came the closest to sending the match into extra time when, in injury time, his looping header struck the top of the crossbar. This is because away goals are no longer valid in Uefa competitions.

However, Real, hoping to win the European Championship for a record-breaking fifteenth time, held strong and advanced to the quarterfinals for the twelfth time in the previous fourteen seasons.

The opponents Carlo Ancelotti’s team will face in the quarterfinals will be revealed on Friday, March 15 at 11:00 GMT, when the draw for the final eight is announced.
