Real Madrid made it five wins from five in the Champions League this season after an emphatic 4-2 win over Italian champions Napoli.

Joselu scored the fourth goal for the Spanish giants late in the game and proceeded to apologize to the fans for missing some chances in the game.

Jude Bellingham, one of the scorers in the game, lauded the striker after the game, and the fans loved it.

Joselu was brought in in the 57th minute for Dani Ceballos, and he missed several clear-cut chances, which infuriated some fans in the stands.

In 33 minutes, he missed free headers a few tap-ins and had many tame shots, some of which were straightforward.

He finally found the target in the 94th minute following a sublime outside-of-the-boot cross from Bellingham, per BBC. Instead of celebrating his goal, he had a despondent look on his face as he apologized to Real Madrid fans.

In 18 games this season, Joselu has scored six goals. He started eight of those games, per Transfermarkt.

Bellingham lauds Joselu

After the match, the Englishman showered the Spaniard with praise.

"Joselu? We are a great family and a great team. When someone is going through a difficult time, it is important to support them and love them. I tried looking for him in the box and luckily I found him, he always performs great. He was a little embarrassed to miss so many chances, but it's football," via Madrid Universal.

Even at 20 years old, Bellingham is showing strong leadership skills, which will make Madrid fans love him more. His lovely comments on Joselu must not take away from his impressive performances this season.

He has now scored 15 goals in 16 games, his best-ever return in a season. He scored 14 goals for Borussia Dortmund the whole of last season, and it is mind-boggling that he has 15 barely halfway through the season.

The England international is in for a special first season at Real Madrid and in his career.
