Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid | After Vinicius Jr.’s injury, an England youngster scores an impressive goal to seal a close victory.
Celta Vigo vs Real Madrid
The €103 million man from Los Blancos scored four goals in three games to give Carlo Ancelotti’s team their third victory of the year.
Jude Bellingham saved his team with a late header to defeat a well-organized Celta Vigo team, becoming the third consecutive game’s hero for Real Madrid. After Vinicius Jr. left the game due to injury, Los Blancos labored for a while but ultimately prevailed 1-0 away from home. Bellingham has four goals in three games since the start of the La Liga season.
Vinicius Jr. was taken out of the game.
Within four minutes, Celta Vigo had a goal disallowed after Kepa Arrizibalaga was found to have been fouled in the build-up to Jorgen Strand Larsen’s flick. But Madrid’s good fortune didn’t last for very long. After going down with a right thigh injury 10 minutes later, Vinicius Jr. was taken out of the game.
And without their star player, they lacked bite. Joselu, his replacement, came the closest in the first half. Jude Bellingham passed to him, and he had the ball in the net, but he was two yards offside. Bellingham again set up Madrid’s greatest opportunity of the second half by supplying Rodrygo, who was clipped by the Celta Vigo goalkeeper inside the area, but the Spanish team’s subsequent penalty kick was missed.
