Real Madrid attacker, Jude Bellingham, has shared his emotions as his younger brother, Jobe, watched him play against Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie.

Bellingham, who transferred from Borussia Dortmund to Los Blancos last summer, played a pivotal role in guiding the Champions League record holders to the semi-finals of Europe's top club competition against all expectations.

In a match where Madrid had to withstand City's relentless attacks throughout, the game extended into extra time after Kevin De Bruyne nullified Rodrygo's early goal in the second half, Eurosport reports.

Despite both teams' efforts, no decisive goal was scored in extra time, leading to a post-match penalty shootout. Madrid emerged victorious, prevailing 4-3 on penalties, with Antonio Rudiger netting the crucial spot-kick.

While the 20-year-old gave his all on the field, his brother supported him from the stands.

Jobe, who plays for Sunderland in the English second tier, witnessed his elder sibling don the famous Real jersey in a Champions League match.

This marked the first occasion that the younger Bellingham had watched his older brother from the stands since the latter joined Carlo Ancelotti's side.

“It was the first day my brother Jobe got to see me play for Madrid,” Jude revealed, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.
He added: “I feel really proud about those kind of things!”.

What Bellingham said before Man City 2nd leg tie

Prior to the game, Sports Brief reported that Jude Bellingham delivered a significant message to Manchester City. The Englishman was optimistic about helping Real Madrid reach the last four.

Despite being considered outsiders by bookmakers, the 14-time winners were confident in their ability to defy the odds, which they did via post-match penalty shootouts.

Bellingham emphasised Real Madrid's pedigree and status in the Champions League, suggesting that doubters should take note of their capabilities.
