Bellingham Equals Ronaldo’s Record Against Celta Vigo
Jude Bellingham continued his impressive start to life in Spain with a match-winning goal to help Real Madrid to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Celta Vigo on Friday, Sportivationng.com reports.
The 20-year-old once again led the Spanish giants’ attack, scoring for the fourth time in his first three league games following Rodrygo’s missed penalty earlier in the second half.
Real were dealt an early blow as Brazilian forward Vinicius Jr was forced off with a leg problem after 15 minutes, a notable loss for Carlo Ancelotti’s side that comes on top of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Eder Militao’s injuries.
Rodrygo had a golden chance to earn Real the lead in the 68th minute with a penalty after keeper Ivan Villar tripped him in the box.
However, Villar redeemed himself as he dived to his right to keep out the Brazilian forward’s spot kick.
Jude Bellingham is the first Real Madrid player since Cristiano Ronaldo to score in his first three LALIGA matches.
They both scored four goals
