Sources say that injured Vinicius won’t play for Atletico or Brazil.

Real Madrid striker Vincius Jnior will miss eight games, including their derby match against Atletico Madrid, due to a right biceps femoris injury. The 23-year-old will miss six weeks of play due to the first muscle injury of his senior career. He will also miss Madrid's opening two group stage games in the Champions League and six LaLiga games. Vinicius will also be absent from Brazil's September World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru. Madrid's first-team roster for the 2023–24 season consists of three senior forwards: Vinicius, Rodrygo, and summer acquisition Joselu.

Vinicius Junior

According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Vincius Jnior will miss eight Real Madrid games, including their derby match against Atletico Madrid, after sustaining a thigh injury in Friday’s 1-0 LaLiga victory against Celta Vigo.

Vini Jr. has been identified as having a right biceps femoris injury, according to tests conducted by Real Madrid Medical Services, the club announced in a statement on Monday. His development will be watched.

According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Vinicius, 23, will likely miss six weeks of play due to the first muscle injury of his senior career.

The attacker would thus miss Madrid’s opening two group stage games in the Champions League as well as six LaLiga games against Getafe, Real Sociedad, Atletico, Las Palmas, Girona, and Osasuna.

Vinicius would also be absent from Brazil’s September World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru.

After experiencing some difficulty when sprinting in Vigo, the striker was replaced in the 18th minute.

“He wished to continue. After the game, coach Carlo Ancelotti stated, “It wasn’t very serious. “He attempted to flee again, but it hurt, so we carried him away. He may return following the [international] break, in my opinion. It’s a pity because he had a strong start and seemed unstoppable.

Only three senior forwards made up Madrid’s first-team roster for the 2023–24 season: Vinicius, Rodrygo, and summer acquisition Joselu.

In response, Ancelotti changed his usual 4-3-3 system to a 4-4-2 one with Vinicius and Rodrygo partnered in attack.

Another recent addition, Jude Bellingham, has flourished in a No. 10 role for the squad thus far, scoring four goals in three league games.

Despite Vinicius’ injury, Ancelotti stated on Friday that Madrid will not attempt to strengthen in the last hours of the transfer window.

“The attack is covered,” Ancelotti declared. “The information is self-evident. We have six goals so far. We have resources up front even without Vinicius and Karim [Benzema].
