Ronald Araujo vs Vini is more than an El Clasico Battle Now


The last El Clasico meetings have seen fierce battles between Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr. and Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo. It has been crucial in determining the result.

Fans are starting to look forward to watching these athletes compete. Since they are among the finest on their respective teams.

Ronald Araujo Bosses in Qualifiers

Ronald Araujo and Vinicius Jr. faced each other once more last night. This time in an international match, Uruguay faced Brazil in the FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifying round.

Additionally, the game resulted in Uruguay’s first victory against Brazil in 22 years. The Barcelona defender utterly excelled and outshoned the Real Madrid forward, according to SPORT.

On this particular night, Araujo played as a center defender. Vinicius was used on his usual left side, so the two were not directly facing off.

Ronald Araujo made the most clearances and headed clearances (4) in the game. He won four of his five aerial duels. Ronald was the player to win the second-highest individual duels (6), and only committed one foul. An early yellow card was the only blemish of the night for the Uruguayan.
In comparison, Vinicius was unable to do any damage to an impenetrable Uruguayan defense and was seen protesting the referees’ decisions more often than not.

El Clasico is Around the Corner

Ten days from now, on October 28 at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, Barcelona will play Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of the 2023–24 season, with Ronald Araujo and Vinicius Jr. facing off once more.

In recent games between the two sides, as seen in the Spanish Super Cup final from the previous season and in one each of the Copa del Rey and La Liga matches, Xavi has resorted to starting Araujo at right-back to neutralize Vinicius’ danger.

Joao Cancelo is currently without a doubt the first choice at right back, so it will be fascinating to see if Xavi decides to change things up for the next game.
