Real Madrid wonder kid Vinicius Junior missed Friday’s training session because of the flu and he is questionable to face Betis next Sunday. The Brazilian winger was one of the main candidates to start after his good performances, especially knowing that Lucas Vazquez will miss the game after being sent off during the match against Real Sociedad last weekend.

If Vinicius can’t go, new signing Brahim Diaz could feature in the starting lineup with Isco and Benzema playing upfront. Asensio and Bale are also injured at the moment so Real Madrid have a thing squad at both wings.

Vinicius will have the whole Saturday to recover from his illness, though, so it will be interesting to see if he can play through it given how desperate Real Madrid are. Betis will be a extremely tough matchup for Los Blancos and Solari’s men need the three points to bounce back from their last two results in La Liga.
