Jude Bellingham Sets Major Champions League Record as Madrid Beat Napoli

Real Madrid scored an epic win against Napoli in a six-goal thriller on Wednesday, and it was a night to remember for Jude Bellingham. The English midfielder made history as the first player to score at least one goal in each of his first four Champions League appearances. The latest face-off between Real Madrid and Napoli was one to remember and gave us several memorable goals. Giovanni Simeone opened the scoring for Napoli just nine minutes into the game, but Madrid made a comeback just two minutes later thanks to Rodrygo's equalizer. Bellingham gave Madrid a 2-1 lead, but it seemed Napoli could make a comeback after Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa equalized at the start of the second half. Their hopes were demolished with Nico Paz’s late goal for Real before Joselu led them to a 4-2 victory in added time. Real Madrid cashed out €133.9 million to get Bellingham, and he’s proving to be worth every cent, according to the team’s manager Carlo Ancelotti. "He's spectacular in getting into the box, he comes into the box like a motorbike. It's surprising because nobody could have imagined such a fast adaptation here, to this club and the football he is showing. He surprises the fans, teammates, and even rivals," he told Movistar Plus.
