Bellingham Sets New Champions League Record for Real Madrid, Scores Fabulous Header Against Napoli
- Jude Bellingham reached another goal-scoring mark for Real Madrid in their UCL tie vs Napoli
- The reigning Golden Boy Award winner notched a sublime header to give Los Blancos the lead
- His goal means he is the first and only Real Madrid player to score in his first four UCL games
Jude Bellingham's impressive goal-scoring spree has continued, as he found the net in his fourth consecutive UEFA Champions League match against Napoli.
The Englishman has seamlessly adapted to life at Real Madrid, showcasing his scoring prowess throughout the season and maintaining this trend on Wednesday.
Fresh off contributing to Madrid's 3-0 victory over Cadiz in La Liga, Bellingham capitalised on a perfectly placed cross from David Alaba, breaking the deadlock for Los Blancos.
His goal not only completed the comeback for the 14-time Champions League winners but also etched his name into the club's history books.
At just 20 years old, Bellingham has achieved a significant milestone, becoming the first Real Madrid player to score in his first four UCL appearances, a record cited by ESPN.
In the process, the former Borussia Dortmund captain became the first English player in history to score 10 Champions League goals before turning 21, per MadridZone.
His goal contribution did not end there, as the 2023 Golden Boy Award winner provided a Luka Modric-esque assist, a pass with the outside of his boots, to Spanish striker Joselu, who made no mistake to end the game as a contest.
