Jude Bellingham’s brace for Real Madrid against Girona on Saturday propelled the midfielder to reach 20 goals for Los Blancos in his debut season.
Bellingham’s double for Real Madrid against Girona on Saturday propelled him to 20 goals for the season, drawing level with former England great David Beckham. Bellingham scored Madrid’s second goal after 35 minutes and added another early in the second half, bringing his tally for the campaign to 20 goals.
The England international’s two goals on Saturday means he has scored 20 goals in just 29 appearances since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund. This achievement sees him draw level with former England captain Beckham, who scored 20 goals in 155 appearances for Los Blancos across four seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.
While Beckham was a popular figure among Madrid fans, his time at the club was challenging, with just one Supercopa and one La Liga title won during his four-year tenure, both occurring at the beginning and end of his spell at the club.
Madrid’s victory over Girona sees them extend their lead at the top of the table to five points, having started the day two points ahead of their rivals. Meanwhile, Barcelona, currently in third place, have the opportunity to narrow the gap to just two points behind Girona with a win against Granada on Sunday.
