Bellingham is still plugged in Almería

Double for the Englishman in a comfortable victory for Real Madrid despite the rojiblanca’s good intentions


Real Madrid beat UD Almería (1-3) this Saturday on the second day of LaLiga EA Sports, with Jude Bellingham adding to his resounding landing at the white club and Spanish football with a double and another match to frame, who helped his team come back at the Power Horse Stadium.

Those of Carlos Ancelotti added the second victory in two games with the same protagonist. The former Borussia Dortmund player, at 20, already excelled in the win at San Mamés, as well as making his debut as a goalscorer, and in Almería he repeated with his power in midfield and two goals like two suns to endorse the Andalusians their second loss in two games.

Madrid imposed his physique in the center of the field and, above all, his punch in the opposite area. Vicente Moreno’s men went ahead after three minutes with the former’s goal, that of a Sergio Arribas on loan to the Andalusian team. The red-and-white counter left the defensive transition of a Madrid that did not have the balance that Ancelotti always talks about, but solved it with a goal.

Moreno’s men tried to calm the exchange with some possession, but the pressure from the Whites did not let up. Without Camavinga but with a Fede Valverde who multiplied going up and down, Madrid was gaining ground until they equalized after 20 minutes with a Bellingham in the right place by centimeters.

The VAR had to review the position, also a hand that the locals claimed, but it went up to 1-1 with the visitors growing. The pause for hydration left Ancelotti’s men somewhat unemployed and Luis Suárez found some company in the attack of an Almería that suffered Lunin inspired under sticks.

The Ukrainian goalkeeper claimed the place of the injured Thibaut Courtois before the signing of Kepa with good interventions, one especially from a shot by Baba. Almería did not specify and, in discount, Kroos’s 0-2 was close to arriving, canceled due to a foul by Carvajal. The home team fell apart trying to get there after the restart, unable to go up with Embarba due to White’s demand.

Moreno thought about the changes, with Robertone and Ramazani aiming wide, but then a cross from Kroos sent him into the Bellingham net, also hit from above. The 1-2 did not prevent Almería from continuing to try, but Modric took action to try to make Madrid command in the final stretch.

The Croatian did it after the 3-1 draw, a good goal from Vinícius to make it clear in the Andalusian city that Ancelotti’s team doesn’t need a great day to score, like another day in the office and commanding at the end. Carvajal, who left another great game just like in San Mamés, had the fourth and Brahim left a good flash of quality in the minutes of discount that the Italian coach gave him.
