Jude Bellingham continues to make waves in the Spanish league, propelling Real Madrid to a stunning 3-1 comeback victory against Almeria.
Real Madrid turned in a messy showing in a hostile environment before the 20-year-old English midfielder, who recently joined the ranks of the 14-time European champions, showcased his prowess with a remarkable double and an assist.
Bellingham’s entrance onto the Spanish football stage was nothing short of extraordinary. Just last weekend, he marked his debut for Madrid with a crucial goal that secured victory against Athletic Bilbao in the season opener.
However, he wasn’t content with a single standout performance. Instead, he elevated his game even further in the match against Almeria.
Facing an early lead by the home team, Bellingham orchestrated an impressive fightback alongside his teammates. His two goals not only leveled the playing field but also showcased his ability to make a significant impact on the pitch.
Bellingham’s second goal, however, was the game-changer, completely knocking the belief out of Almería.
From that moment on, there was little doubt about the outcome, with the introductions of Eduardo Camavinga and Luka Modric helping Los Blancos take the sting out of the game and offer even more of a threat in the closing stages.
Notably, it was his brilliant connection with Vinícius Júnior that sealed the victory for Real Madrid, with the Brazilian forward capitalizing on Bellingham’s assist to score the third goal with just under 20 minutes left to go turned a fiercely-contested clash into something of a procession as the full-time whistle approached.
Almeria certainly made it a contest, but the visitors’ quality shone through in the second half. Bellingham now has three goals in his first two games in La Liga, an outstanding start even by his standards, while Real have six points from a possible six.
