Vinicius Jr. Leads Nominees for La Liga Player of the Month Award for April 2023

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr. has emerged as the frontrunner for the La Liga Player of the Month award for April 2023. The Brazilian star is competing against four other nominees - Iago Aspas of Celta Vigo, Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla, Isco of Real Betis, and Savio of Girona.

Vinicius Jr. is coming off an impressive March where he won the Player of the Month award. In April, he continued his strong form, contributing a goal and an assist in the high-profile El Clasico match against Barcelona. His consistent performances have made him the clear favorite to take home the April award as well.

Among the other contenders, Iago Aspas had a standout month for Celta Vigo, scoring twice and assisting twice in their 4-1 victory over Las Palmas. Sevilla's Youssef En-Nesyri found the net once and set up another goal as his team secured two wins in April. Isco provided an assist to help Real Betis claim two 2-1 victories, while Savio, who is set for a summer move to Manchester City, registered an assist in Girona's 4-1 triumph against Cadiz.

Why this matters: The La Liga Player of the Month award recognizes the top performing player in Spain's top flight each month. It not only highlights individual excellence but also generates excitement among fans who can vote for the winner and see them receive a special boosted player item in the popular FIFA video game series.

The winner of the fan-voted La Liga Player of the Month award for April 2023 will be honored with a special card in the Ultimate Team mode of EA Sports FC 24, the successor to the FIFA series. Despite the strong competition, Vinicius Jr.'s popularity and impact on the virtual pitch make him the odds-on favorite to clinch the accolade.
