Real Madrid-bound Vinicius Junior scored a brace to help Flamengo to victory in the Copa Libertadores, while Atletico Nacional enjoyed a big win.
Vinicius, the 17-year-old forward who has already been signed by Madrid, came off the bench to see Flamengo overcome Emelec 2-1 in Group 4 Wednesday.
The Brazilian came on with his team 1-0 down in Guayaquil, where Brayan Angulo had put the hosts ahead with a deflected strike in the 65th minute.
But Vinicius took over from there, beating three markers down the right before cutting inside and finishing to make it 1-1.
He scored the winner in the 85th minute, playing a one-two with former Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen star Diego before curling a finish into the corner from just inside the area.
