What records did Jude Bellingham establish during the UCL matchup between Real Madrid and Napoli?

When Real Madrid decided to splash over $110 million on Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, they didn’t know they were getting their hands on an unlikely goal machine. The young Englishman has been Real Madrid’s best player by a country mile, and despite sustaining an injury recently, that doesn’t seem to have affected his form.

Jude Bellingham broke a couple of records for Real Madrid during the heavyweight clash with Napoli yesterday, with the former Birmingham City midfielder getting on the scoresheet for the fourth successive Champions League game, making him the only player in the club’s history to do so.

Bellingham recently became the player with the most goals in their first 15 games for the club, scoring 14 goals in 15 games, putting him ahead of legends such as Alfredo Di Stefano and Cristiano Ronaldo. In the UCL match against Napoli on Wednesday, the Englishman broke more records for Real Madrid in a streak of record-breaking form.

Bellingham scored Real Madrid’s second goal of the night to put the club ahead in the eventual 4-2 win over Napoli. This goal took Bellingham to 16 goals in 15 games for the club, four in the Champions League. This was Bellingham’s fourth UCL goal in four appearances for the club in the competition, making him the first Real Madrid player to score in each of his four appearances in the competition.

He’s also the youngest English player to reach double figures in terms of UCL goals, with the 20-year-old having scored 10 goals already in the competition for Dortmund and Real Madrid.

The former Birmingham City star has scored 15 goals in 16 games in all competitions for Real Madrid, making him the club’s top scorer and La Liga’s early Pichichi Trophy contender.

Jude Bellingham just doesn’t score against regular teams. He has proved himself to be a big-game player, with a brace against Real Madrid a month ago in his first El Clasico, drawing himself some praise from former teammate Erling Haaland, who is in a world of his own, too.

Real Madrid may be without a recognized striker since allowing Karim Benzema to join Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ittihad. However, the Spanish giants are getting rescued by Jude Bellingham, who keeps scoring whenever called upon this season.
