Vinícius Júnior praises Kroos as Real Madrid secure 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich

Posted : 01 May 2024

Vinícius Júnior commended Toni Kroos for his pivotal role in Real Madrid's 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich, crediting the veteran midfielder for setting up the first of his two goals in the Champions League semifinal clash.


Vinicius capitalized on Kroos' precise throughball to break the deadlock in the 24th minute, ultimately securing a late penalty to level the score ahead of the second leg in Madrid. Despite his own scoring prowess, Vinicius emphasized Kroos' influence, describing him as someone who consistently simplifies the game and expressing his eagerness for a decisive home fixture.


Kroos, who is gearing up for a return to the German national team for the upcoming Euro, modestly played down his contribution to Madrid's opening goal, attributing it to Vinicius' intelligent movement that created the opportunity.


Despite his humble stance, teammates like Rodrygo praised Kroos' enduring skill and class, highlighting the impact of Madrid's ability to conjure crucial moments out of seemingly ordinary situations, a trait acknowledged by Bayern's Leon Goretzka post-match.


Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged the team's mixed performance, noting moments of intensity but also lapses in control that allowed Bayern to capitalize.


Ancelotti hinted at potential improvements ahead of the second leg while also addressing concerns about Jude Bellingham's subdued display, explaining his substitution due to cramp and expressing confidence in the player's recovery.


With a pivotal league match against Cadiz preceding the return leg against Bayern, Madrid remains focused on both domestic and European ambitions.
