Bellingham signs an unbeatable debut in LaLiga


The English midfielder for Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham, had an unbeatable debut in LaLiga EA Sports this Saturday against Athletic Club, already becoming the leader of the midfield of the Merengue team, also debuting as a goalscorer.

A large part of the eyes of the football universe were on San Mamés last Saturday. The ‘new’ Real Madrid debuted in LaLiga EA Sports, and did so with the great signing this summer as a starter. Jude Bellingham, who joined the Whites last June from Borussia Dortmund, caused a sensation during the preseason with great performances. Already in preparation Ancelotti gave him the keys to the new game system, and now it was his turn to do it in an official match.

The English international did not disappoint as the spearhead in a midfield made up of Tchouameni, Valverde and Camavinga. Bellingham demonstrated his physical capacity and deployment, appearing in practically all areas of the pitch, although with a preference for the left zone in the creation of play. In addition, he showed one of his main qualities, that of arriving, being the second Real Madrid player who carried out the most actions (4) in the rival area, only surpassed by Vinícius (8).

Bellinham was one of the most incisive players of the match. His was the second goal for Real Madrid, thus debuting with a goal in the white shirt in the League, emulating Real Madrid legends such as Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale. In addition, he was the second Real Madrid player to have shot on goal the most times (2) and the attacking player who made the most tackles in the last third (6). Some data that show the offensive capacity that English has, despite starting from a more backward position.

Bellingham was right up there in distribution, too, despite the match pace and intensity making positional play difficult. The Real Madrid ‘5’ completed 40 passes, 18 of them in the last third -the most for Real Madrid in this regard-, and created a scoring chance. In addition, he put a cross into the box and completed 3 of the 4 dribbles he attempted in the match.

But Bellingham, above all, stood out in the defensive aspect, prevailing in 12 of the 15 duels he played, being the best man of the match in this section. He recovered 6 balls, made 2 successful tackles, intercepted 2 balls and made 1 clearance. In addition, he was the player of the white team who forced the most fouls (6).

Debut, goal, MVP and a very complete game for a player who is called to be a differential in the midfield of the ‘new’ Real Madrid. A dream start for a Jude Bellingham who will have to prolong this performance over time and show that he can have the regularity that allows him to be the leader of a team that fights for all the titles.
