MARCELO’S son Enzo Alves Vieira stood out for Real Madrid’s youth side with a stunning hat-trick in the derby against Atletico Madrid.
Real faced rivals Atletico away on Wednesday and picked up a triumphant 5-2 victory thanks to Enzo, 13, who is truly proving to be following in his dad’s footsteps.

Atletico opened the scoring after just eight minutes but the striker turned the game on its head in dominant fashion.
The young forward registered a marvellous hat-trick within just 20 minutes to lead his team to victory.
Enzo added to his staggering goal tally that has seen him topping the scoring charts.
The teenager has amassed a whopping 19 goals and four assists in only nine league games.
Enzo’s fantastic displays led to Real offering him his first ever professional contract in December.
The talented youngster has been recognised for his powerful physique, technique and scoring instinct.
And it is obvious he wishes to emulate the success of his father Marcelo, who is Real’s all-time most decorated player with 25 honours under his name.
The left-back spent 15 glittering years at the Santiago Bernabeu and amassed a total of 38 goals and 103 assists in 546 appearances.
The Brazilian left last summer and joined Olympiacos but continues to follow his son’s success at his old stomping ground.
In fact, the 34-year-old took some time off and flew from Greece to Madrid alongside his wife to witness Enzo putting pen to paper on his first ever contract with Real.
