With shirt number 7 and a hat-trick… Vinicius does what Ronaldo couldn’t do in El Clásico!

A very limited list of players, those who succeeded in scoring 3 “hat-trick” goals during the Clásico between Real Madrid and Barcelona in all tournaments.

The latest to join this list is Vinicius Junior, after he scored a hat-trick in just 39 minutes against Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup final in Saudi Arabia.

The Brazilian international wore the historic Royal jersey, No. 7, which has become famous in the last two decades under the name of the legend Cristiano Ronaldo, but Vini now surpasses “The Don”.

Ronaldo never succeeded in scoring a hat-trick against Barcelona, whether with Real Madrid or any other club, while Vinicius did it when he was twenty-three years old.

Vinicius joined a list that includes Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema and Luis Suarez among contemporary players who have scored a hat-trick in El Clásico.

The small list includes legends: Ivan Zamorano, Romario, Gary Lineker, Fernando Sanudo, Pusaks and Jesus Naro.

Thanks to his hat-trick in Barcelona, Vinicius’ total goals in Barcelona have now reached 6, but he is still far behind Ronaldo, who scored 20 goals and assisted 3 others.

It remains to be noted that Vinicius is the first player in history to score a hat-trick in El Clásico within 39 minutes.
