  • Jude Bellingham hilariously slapped Antonio Rudiger after their Spanish Super Cup win
  • Vinicius Junior scored thrice to help Real Madrid dismantle El Classico opponents Barcelona
  • Rudiger has been involved in a series of friendly but painful celebrations with his teammates

Real Madrid whitewashed Barcelona 4-1 to win the 2024 Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia on January 14.

A Vinicius Junior hat-trick in the first half bamboozled their El Classico opponents, with Rodrygo getting the fourth one after the break.

Robert Lewandowski pulled one back for Barcelona, with Ronaldo Araujo getting sent off in the second half for a second bookable offence.

After the game, the Los Blancos players, technical bench and fans took over the Al-Awwal Park with celebrations before captain Nacho Fernandez lifted the trophy.

Bellingham slaps Rudiger

In a video shared on social media sighted by Sports Brief, Jude Bellingham showed his cheeky side by hitting Antonio Rudiger on the hip before running away. Rudiger then turned around and hits veteran Luka Modric.

Here is a video of that incident:

The gesture between the two players is part of an ongoing friendly fire in the Carlo Ancelotti camp. At the start of the year, Rudiger scored the only goal in their win against Mallorca and rushed to the corner flag to celebrate.

Rudiger promises revenge against Madrid teammates

His fellow teammates, led by Bellingham, Modric and Joselu were seen slapping and hitting him several times in what fans online called, 'giving Rudiger a taste of his own medicine.' The former Chelsea man vowed to revenge in subsequent games.

The German is always feisty and 'aggressive' with his celebrations, and it looks like his teammates have made a vow to get him back this year.

Rudiger pinches Modric's chest

Sports Brief has also reported that Rudiger was spotted pinching Luka Modric in the chest during the Spanish Cup celebrations.

The 30-year-old centre-back did the same thing to Alvaro Morata during the semifinals against Atletico Madrid on January 10.

Unlike the veteran midfielder, Morata wasn't amused by Rudiger's antics and tried to get the referee to intervene.
