Barcelona-bound Vitor Roque impressed again for Athletico Paranaense in a 2-0 win over Vasco at the weekend.

The youngster did not manage to get on the scoresheet this time around but did bag an assist and win a penalty in the victory for his side.

Vitor also showed off his incredible pace, which caused plenty of problems for the hosts, and ensured he came in for some hefty challenges.

The teenager’s superb pass teed up Christian for the opening goal, before he won a penalty after some silky footwork in the area.

Vitor clearly wanted to take the spot-kick, and was annoyed when he wasn’t allowed, with Vitor Bueno the team’s designated taker and making no mistake from the spot.

It’s another effective and impressive showing from Vitor ahead of his move to Barcelona which is due to take place in summer 2024.

Barcelona will hope the Brazilian starlet can continue to impress before he heads to Camp Nou next season to link up with Xavi’s side.
