The 20-year-old English star who recently joined Real Madrid from the Bundesliga side (Borussia Dortmund) is taking the Spanish League by storm. His presence has significantly influenced Real Madrid‘s performance in recent matches early this season.
The talented player, who has been the talk of the town for some time, made some impressive performances that lived up to the hype and expectations that followed his €100 million signing into La Liga.
Bellingham At Real Madrid
Real Madrid has played three games in the 2023-24 season, and they suffered a heavy blow early prior to losing goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and center-back Eder Militao due to injuries.
When this was added up with the departure of Karim Benzema, their formidable striker, and their inability to successfully sign Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane, the goal-scoring possibilities and attacking threat of Real Madrid seemed questionable.
Luckily, one of their prominent signings during the transfer window, Jude Bellingham, has shown potential to be of immeasurable value on offense, especially at times like this.
Match-Winning Performance From Jude Bellingham
Jude Bellingham has shown incredible form for Real Madrid early this season. In the first three La Liga games, he has scored a goal in every match and secured nine points for Real Madrid in the process.
Real Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao
The game against Athletic Bilbao was the first official match for Jude Bellingham after signing for Real Madrid for a whopping €103 million. In his very first La Liga game for Real Madrid, he marked his presence by scoring a goal, helping Madrid win the game 2-0, and starting the 2023/24 La Liga campaign on a positive note.
Real Madrid vs. Almeria
The 20-year-old English star decided the fate of Real Madrid against Almeria in the second round of La Liga all by himself. He was the main attacking weapon for Real Madrid in the game. He recorded three-goal contributions in the game, including a brace of goals and a beautiful assist to Vinicius Junior. He became the man of the match in the game as well.
Real Madrid vs. Celta Vigo
With already scoring at least a goal in the previous two matches, Jude Bellingham was high on confidence for the third match, and his confidence was clearly visible on the pitch against Celta Vigo.
The game, which is the most recent game of Bellingham in Madrid, went goalless in the first half and continued goalless for most of the second half, with Rodrygo missing an opportunity from the penalty spot in the 68th minute.
All this changed in the 81st minute when Bellingham scored his third goal in his third game. It ended up being the game-winning goal of Real Madrid as the game ended 1-0.
In addition, Jude at the end of the match was voted the highest-rated player in the match as well.
Top Scorer Of The League
It is too early to talk about the Pichichi Award with just three matches played. However, the goal-scoring run of Jude Bellingham can’t be ignored. He is currently leading the goal-scoring chart in the Spanish League with four goals. On the other hand, Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski is yet to open his account in the league.
With a 100% win record in the first three La Liga matches thanks to Bellingham’s brilliance, Real Madrid will be looking forward to extending the run and exerting early pressure on arch-rival FC Barcelona, who have already dropped two points in their first two matches. Real Madrid will now play against Getafe in game week four before facing Real Sociedad in game week five.
