Jude Bellingham continues to make waves in La Liga!
The highly-rated Englishman has taken to life in Spain like a duck to water, scoring four goals and assisting another in his first three La Liga games for new club Real Madrid.
And on Matchday 4, the former Dortmund sensation was the hero once again as he secured Los Blancos' winner in a crucial victory over Getafe.
Ancelotti's men hosted Geta Azulones just before the international break and found themselves one-nil down at home after conceding to their former attacker Borja Mayoral in the 11th minute.
Joselu grabbed the equalizer for the hosts early on in the second half but several of Real Madrid's attempts to take the lead were thwarted by the visitors. However, Bellingham stepped up in the dying minutes of the game and won his side the three points in stoppage time.
While Rodrygo deserves tremendous credit for this goal, it was Bellingham's smart movement that ultimately sealed the three points, with the Three Lions sensation rolling the ball into the back of the net after the Getafe goalkeeper spilled a shot from the aforementioned Brazilian attacker.

And with that, Jude reached an outstanding feat. The midfielder has now scored in each of his first four La Liga games for the Spanish giants, and to put this achievement into perspective, this is something only Cristiano Ronaldo has achieved before.

And with that, Los Merengues maintained their perfect start to the campaign and will enter the international break top of the table. However, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona can slash Real Madrid's lead at the top to two points if they win their respective games on Sunday.
