Vinicius Jr Is being one of the big protagonists in the previous of the party between the FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, this Saturday from the 16:15 hours (4:15 PM CEST) by the eleventh day of LaLiga EA SPORTS 2023/2024. Big part of the debate has centred in the 'style' of the Brazilian attacker and on if it is provocador or no in the terrain of game.

The player of the Real Madrid is one of the most important points for the Classical, further that the relate have centred in his complaints in all the parties every time that they commit him a fault. From it does some days and especially after his big party against the Sporting Club of Knickers, the doubt is who will be able to mark him and how will be the Barça able to minimise him. The last time that visited the City Condal did parties beside Karim Benzema.

Gündogan Resolves the controversy

In any case, the players of the Barça have been constantly asked after if the 'provocations' of Vini can mark the difference in the crash of this Saturday and all have happened of the controversy. They have left a message more than clear: like or no, the Brazilian has his style and remains them respect it because it is a rival. They are not slope of the controversies that follow adding to a Classical that already is quite hot and in which the environment is quite taut.

Ílkay Gündogan, in an interview to 'Esport3', has been questioned in this regard and has kept on the same line: "Somebody can interpret the actions of Vinícius like a provocation, but for me, sincerely, are not it. Obviously, he already knows that if it does these things will whistle him. But perhaps it likes him that they whistle him, I do not know it...", it aimed, signalling that "some players live it like an extra element of motivation. To me same happens me, that when game was and whistle me, motivate me more. We live in a world where there are a lot of forms to do and whenever it was from the respect, all the world has to can show his emotions".

Decisive duel in Montjuïc

Like this then , we are in front of a decisive duel in which the maximum worry will not be the attitude of Vinicius. The Barça plays his 'pride' and the keep on being one of the three teams that keep without knowing the defeat in what it goes of season. The Classical are split 'special' and in which it always is necessary cumpir with the requirement, especially home. The challenge for the Catalans is absolute.
