Real Madrid’s Rising Star Bellingham Nets Fourth Goal in Three Games, Seals 1-0 Victory – Jude Bellingham is on fire once again! He managed to find the back of the net for the fourth time in just three games, leading Real Madrid to a thrilling 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo last Friday. This impressive win marks a fantastic streak of three consecutive triumphs for Real Madrid in the Spanish league.
Bellingham, a true star in the making, made quite the buzz when he switched from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid for an eye-popping $142 million during the summer. And let me tell you, he’s proving every penny’s worth. In the opening match, he scored a crucial goal that helped secure a 2-0 win against Athletic Bilbao. Not stopping there, he followed it up with not one, but two goals in the 3-1 victory against Almeria in the next game.
Now, let’s talk about the showdown with Celta Vigo. Bellingham stole the spotlight once more with his winning goal in the 81st minute. It was a masterful header that sealed the deal for Real Madrid. Celta Vigo had their chances too, but they couldn’t quite convert them into goals.
Giving Bellingham a helping hand was Joselu Mato, who stepped in when Vinícius Júnior got injured. Vinícius Júnior had to leave the field due to a leg injury, and the coach mentioned that they’re going to assess the extent of his injury.
When it comes to Celta Vigo’s goalkeeper, Ivan Villar, he pulled off a fantastic save during the 68th minute, blocking a penalty kick from Rodrygo. A penalty kick happens when the opposing team commits a foul inside their own penalty area. And guess what? Bellingham’s accurate pass set up this penalty kick opportunity.
Just a short while after that, Celta Vigo’s player, Iago Aspas, came incredibly close to scoring a goal, but unfortunately, his shot missed the target by a hair’s breadth.
On the other side, Luca de la Torre, an American player representing Celta Vigo, had a bit of a rough time. He got injured during the game and had to leave the field after being attended to by the team doctors. However, the silver lining is that he was able to walk off the field under his own power.
Real Madrid’s regular goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, was unavailable due to an injury, so the new signing, Kepa Arrizabalaga, took his place. Kudos to Kepa for stepping up! And don’t forget, Andriy Lunin, the other goalkeeper, was ready on the bench.
Despite the excitement of getting Rafa Benítez as their new coach this summer, Celta Vigo is yet to secure a victory. This match was their third shot, and they’re still hunting for that first win under his leadership.
