Jude Bellingham became the first player to score in League.

As Real Madrid played to a deserved victory over Napoli in the Champions League final, Jude Bellingham became the first player to score in each of his first four appearances in the competition for Real Madrid.

The England midfielder headed in David Alaba’s cross in the 22nd minute to give the 14-time winners a 2-1 lead.

In his 16th appearance for Los Blancos, the 20-year-old scored his 15th goal in the process.

Furthermore, he also assisted Joselu’s fourth goal as Real continued their perfect record in this season’s Champions League by winning 4-2 in the final with another goal from him in added time.

Real manager Carlo Ancelotti explained to Movistar Plus that his striker comes into the box like a motorbike, and he makes it look easy for him to do so.

In spite of the fact that nobody could have imagined such a rapid adaptation here, to this club and to the football he plays. He surprises the fans, the team mates and even the rivals in some cases.

It was Giovanni Simeone who opened the scoring for the visitors in the ninth minute, however Rodrygo’s brilliant curling effort brought Real back into the game two minutes later.

Despite Bellingham taking the lead, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa equalised for the Italian champions just after the restart with a powerful volley from a tight angle to give the home side the advantage.

The third goal came from Nico Paz, the son of former Argentina defender Pablo, in the 84th minute, before Bellingham brilliantly crossed for Joselu to tap in.

After matchday four, Real had already advanced to the last 16 as Group C winners, while Napoli remain second, three points ahead of Sporting Braga, the group’s final opponent.
