Jude Bellingham Scores Late As Relentless Real Madrid Destroy Union’s Champions League Debut


Real Madrid defeated Union Berlin 1-0 in their Group C match at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, spoiling the Bundesliga team’s Champions League debut. Jude Bellingham scored deep in extra time.

Before replacement Federico Valverde’s effort bounced off two defenders in Union’s packed penalty area and fell to Bellingham, who put it in the net for his sixth goal in six games this season, the game in Madrid appeared to be headed for a draw.

Real’s sixth straight victory was made possible by the 94th-minute goal, which also assured that Real maintained their perfect record this season.

“I’m a confident lad but I really couldn’t have hoped for things to start as well as this in terms of goals,” said Bellingham, who was signed from Borussia Dortmund in June for 103 million euros ($109.94 million).

“We’ve played five in LaLiga, one in the Champions League and won all six so we can’t really complain about that.

“I think we dominated the match and created good chances so we deserved the win. I’m just so grateful to my team mates and the staff here who’ve done such a good job of integrating me.”

Real Madrid had the majority of the ball in the first half, but Union defended staunchly and were superbly commanded at the back by veteran Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci, a summer acquisition from Juventus.

Joselu, a forward for Real, was active right away but missed two chances with his head early in the game.

The 14-time champions got the game going quickly in the second half, and Rodrygo twice came close to opening the score. The first time, he fired a spectacular volley that cannoned against the post, but it was saved by goalkeeper Frederik Ronnow from close range.

As the second half went on and Union started to tire, Carlo Ancelotti’s team began to tighten the screws, and the Italian coach added Valverde and Toni Kroos.

The German defense was broken when midfielder Bellingham scored on his Champions League debut for Real, just as Joselu, Antonio Rudiger, and Rodrygo all wasted late opportunities to score for Union.

The visitors will be quite frustrated that they gave up the lead so late, but they will be encouraged by their effort and think they have a genuine chance of advancing through the group stage.

On October 3, Union will host Braga of Portugal, while Real will travel to Napoli, the reigning Italian champions.
