In a stellar display, Jude Bellingham scored his 13th goal of the season, propelling Real Madrid back to the summit of La Liga with a commanding 3-0 triumph over Cadiz. Real Madrid entered the match trailing Girona by two points but secured a convincing victory to reclaim the top spot.
The Brazilian forward, Rodrygo, set the tone for Real Madrid with an early goal, giving them the lead. The 22-year-old doubled the advantage midway through the second half, showcasing his attacking prowess. England midfielder Bellingham, just 20 years old, continued his outstanding performance since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, scoring his 11th goal in 12 La Liga games.
Bellingham’s impact was evident from the start, as he played a crucial role in the opening goal by providing an assist to Rodrygo. The Birmingham City youth product demonstrated his versatility and goal-scoring ability, securing Real Madrid’s third consecutive win.
Despite losing Vinicius Jr to injury during the international break, Real Madrid found strength in fellow Brazilian Rodrygo, who has now scored in three consecutive games for the club. Luka Modric, a key figure in Real’s midfield, came close to adding to the lead with a low strike against the post in the second half.
Rodrygo’s dynamic performance continued as he capitalized on a Modric assist, cutting inside before firing a precise shot into the far post. The Brazilian then turned provider, setting up Bellingham in the left channel. The English midfielder displayed his form with a superb left-footed strike across the goal, finding the bottom corner and sealing a comprehensive victory for Real Madrid.
The win not only propelled Real Madrid back to the top of La Liga but also underscored the depth and talent within the squad as they navigate the challenges of the season. The combination of experienced players like Modric and emerging talents like Bellingham and Rodrygo bodes well for Real Madrid’s aspirations in both domestic and international competitions.
