Vinicius Junior Or Ansu Fati? Who is the better player?

El Clasico is the biggest event in the history of football. The Spanish League have seen great rivalries over the course of time and they will continue this legacy in the future. People love the intense rivalry of these two big teams.

The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from La Liga itself was a big blow to the fans of El Clasico while now they lost Leo Messi too.

The teams are used to such situations and now someone new will take their place. The future looks promising with Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid and Ansu Fati of FC Barcelona. These two young and talented players have the potential to be the next big rivalry of La Liga.

Is Vinicius Junior better than much younger Ansu Fati? Let’s find out.

The Brazilian is a good playmaker on the left-wing and can make quality assists to Karim Benzema or his other teammates. While Ansu Fati can play great in the wing and come into the position of an attacking forward in times of need.

The young Fati gets a close win because of his attacking advantages. However, Vinicius isn’t far behind and he is getting his form back this season.

Any of these two players can win on personal stats when they reach their prime.

The young Fati gets a close win because of his attacking advantages. However, Vinicius isn’t far behind and he is getting his form back this season.

2: Titles

The Brazilian Vinicius Jr is way ahead of his rival with more titles in his trophy cabinet. The player won the La Liga league title, the Club World Cup and the Spanish Super Cup with Real Madrid. On the other hand, Ansu Fati won the Copa Del Rey in Camp Nou with Leo Messi in his last season.

On the differences between them in the number of titles, Vincius Jr is the winner.

3: International Career

The young Brazilian national has achieved more for his country especially in the youth team (U-20, U-17 and U-15). The player won the South American Championship twice with the youth squad and was the highest scorer for them in 2017. Vini is expected to make more appearances for them as he is starting to form good chemistry with his Brazilian teammates.

Fati is yet to make his mark internationally. The player is too young and he will get more chances to prove himself. The player made a goal and an assist in the UEFA nations league. It would be wrong to judge Fati on this stage when he did not get the right exposure internationally.

The upcoming World Cup will be a big chance for both of them to make their name internationally. The Brasil National team is stronger compared to the current Spanish Team. In the future, Vinicius can win the biggest title in international football with the help of Neymar, Jesus, Casemiro, Marquinhos and other stars in their squad. 

The current statistics suggest that Vinicius is the winner in this category.

4: Club

The two promising talents of La Liga are too young to have a long history of clubs. Ansu Fati initially came from the Sevilla youth academy to Barcelona when he was 10 years old. Since then Ansu raised ahead of his ranks to get a promotion in the adult squad and is destined to get first-team action in future.

Vinicius Jr experienced adult football in two different clubs. The player was signed from Flamengo to Real Madrid in 2017. During his time with Flamengo, he caught the eye of Madrid scouts. He scored 10 goals and made 4 assists in 49 appearances for them.

Flamengo is a top club of Brasil and being a part of it is a big achievement for many Brasilian players.

Conclusion:

It won’t be ideal to judge any of them based on the career they’ve had until now. The Spanish Fati looks more promised as he is the next big thing at Barcelona after the departure of Leo Messi. The club gave him the iconic no 10 jersey which belonged to Messi for a long time.

The player is effective in front of the goal and looks to improve on his weak points. The only big problem with Fati is that he is prone to getting injuries and we do know that injuries can ruin a career.

The Brasilian is gifted with unmatched skills and speed to make his career a memorable one. Vinicius is at the perfect club if he wants to be considered great. Fans of Real Madrid need someone promising to look up to on the left wing after the exit of their club legend Cristiano Ronaldo. Initially, it was Hazard who was expected to replace the void of Cristiano but he failed miserably. Now he can be the new hero and face of Madrid.

Even if we compare these two exceptional players statistically it would be too difficult to name a winner. One is good at playmaking and assisting while the other is good at scoring goals and maintaining the composure of his team.

Gerard Pique who is a teammate of Ansu was asked about who is the better player among these two where he said, “Ansu or Vinícius? Vinicius is quicker, stronger and purer. Fati has a scoring talent and the ability to play as a striker. Ansu is more of a goalscorer and Vini is stronger, and in 1v1 situations, Vinícius is one of the best in the world.

Vinicius being older than Ansu Fati wins just because he is older than him and he has proved himself. The real debate between these two rivals will be when they reach their prime.
