Real Madrid returned to the top of La Liga with a win over Osasuna at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, with Jude Bellingham scoring twice. This extended the guest’s winning streak at this stadium to his 17 matches. This record has been running since his April 2004.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been relentless in front of goal in recent days, scoring three goals in each of their last two games. The driving force was the irrepressible Jew Bellingham, and the Englishman was there again within 10 minutes. Luka Modric’s sharp ball found Dani Carvajal between the lines and his deft throw sent Bellingham high into the goal.
Despite their superiority, the Whites struggled to create chances after taking the lead, and Vinicius Junior’s innocent shot narrowly fell short with two goals remaining in stoppage time. Josel was penalized almost immediately as he missed a shot from close range on the edge of HT, wasting a golden chance for Osasuna to equalize. Lucas Torro deftly deflected Ruben Peña’s low cross to the left, giving free Ante Budimir a chance to shoot, but his left-footed shot could not be kept out, much to the relief of the packed home crowd.
The hosts immediately took the lead after the restart and Joselu should have been better off missing his shot after a defensive error allowed a free shot on goal. However, Bellingham had no such problems immediately after that. After a complicated one-two with Federico Valverde, the 20-year-old showed composure beyond his years and fired a shot past goalkeeper Sergio Herrera for his 10th goal for his new club. , doubling Real’s lead.
Immediately after the end of the game, Vinicius Jr. received a breathtaking pass from Valverde, evaded the goalkeeper and expertly slotted home to seal the victory. The floodgates opened in the Spanish capital and Josel then got into the action, shooting the ball home after some great hold-up play from Vinicius Junior. Josel saved a penalty in the final stages, but the overwhelming Real team won with confidence, but they returned to first place with three consecutive league wins.
