Real Madrid Dominates Girona, Bellingham Shines Despite Injury Scare

Real Madrid solidified their lead at the top with a resounding victory over Girona, extending their advantage to five points. The match, held at the Bernabeu, saw Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Jr. lead the charge with their standout performances.

Vinicius Jr. set the tone with a remarkable long-range goal, giving Madrid the early momentum. Bellingham, continuing his exceptional season, then capitalized on a brilliant pass from Vinicius to score his 19th goal. He didn’t stop there, adding another to his tally after the break, further highlighting his critical role in the team’s success.

However, Bellingham’s celebratory night took a turn when he suffered an injury following a collision, sparking concern over his condition. Despite initially attempting to play through the pain, he was eventually substituted, leaving the pitch with an ice pack, raising questions about the severity of his injury.

Bellingham’s contribution before his departure was monumental, setting a new benchmark for midfielders in La Liga by scoring more goals for Real Madrid in a single season than any other midfielder this century. His performance didn’t just contribute to the scoreline; it etched his name deeper into the fabric of the club’s storied history.

Rodrygo added to Girona’s woes, making it 4-0, underscoring Madrid’s offensive prowess. Girona did have a chance to salvage some pride, but Joselu’s penalty struck the post, encapsulating a frustrating night for the challengers.
