Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde reserved massive praise for Vinicius Jr and Jude Bellingham following Real Madrid’s 3-2 away win against Napoli.

It was a difficult night away at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, with Vinicius Jr and Jude Bellingham’s goals helping the Los Blancos to victory.

Speaking after the game, Valverde said: “Vini and Bellingham had great games and they’ve shown that with their goals.
