European champions Real Madrid have, on Sunday, added a fresh pair of names to the club’s squad list for the Champions League group stage.
Los Blancos, of course, have enjoyed a flawless start to the defence of their European crown.
Across a pair of outings to date, Carlo Ancelotti’s troops have racked up six points, finding the back of the net on five occasions, whilst conceding none in the process.
In turn, the powers that be in the Spanish capital evidently decided it as the right time to add some youth to the club’s continental setup for the season ahead.
As alluded to above, a pair of starlets currently honing their craft with Real’s Castilla outfit have been called up to reinforce Los Merengues’ Champions League squad.
The players in question? Vinicius Tobias and Iker Bravo.
For those not aware, Tobias, namesake and fellow countryman of Real star man Vinicius Jr, is an 18-year-old full-back, who sealed a move to the Bernabeu from Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this year.
Bravo, meanwhile, is a 17-year-old Spanish youth international, who lines out in the attacking third.
Interestingly, the gifted young forward is a product of the famed La Masia academy of fierce rivals Barcelona, whom he departed for Germany and Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2021.
