The 18-year-old joined the Blancos from Rennes to make an amount of € 40 million on the deadline
Eduardo Camavinga needed just six minutes to open his Real Madrid account after making his debut against Celta Vigo on Sunday.
The 18-year-old was taken off the bench in the 66th minute against Celta and found the back of the net in the 72nd minute, giving his team a 4-2 lead.
Karim Benzema would later complete his hat-trick, while Madrid won 5-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga.
After Celta went into the break with a 2-1 lead, Benzema scored his second goal of the game in the 46th minute, before Vinicius jr. 10 minutes later was able to take a 3-2 lead.
With Camavinga on the field in place of Eden Hazard, Luka Modric took possession and walked directly through midfield before unleashing a shot with the outside of his shoe in the box.
Celta’s goalkeeper Matias Dituro saved, but Camavinga was ready to tap the rebound into an empty net.
Great things are expected from Camavinga
Camavinga’s debut goal was an encouraging sign for a player who joined Madrid from Rennes on a € 40m (£ 34m / $ 47m) deadline.
A number of big clubs, including PSG and Manchester United, have been chasing the French team, which has been one of the most promising talents in Europe this past season.
Last year he became the youngest person to be called up to the French national team at senior level since 1932 and won three matches for Didier Deschamps’ team.
