*Jude Bellingham Real’s first two goals against Osasuna take his tally to 10 for the season

*Vinicius Junior and Joselu completed a quick finish in the second half for the home team

*Real Madrid leads La Liga ahead of the October international break

Real Madrid entered La Liga’s top international competition after a 4-0 defeat to Osasuna on Saturday afternoon, with Jude Bellingham once again the star attraction at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Bellingham arrived in Madrid to be compared to Zinedine Zidane after wearing the number 5 shirt, but was compared to Diego Maradona and even Alfredo Di Stefano after the midweek match against Napoli. Clearly, no amount of hype – and certainly not Osasuna’s backline – can faze the 20-year-old.

Vinicius Junior and Joselu, who also tried to save a penalty kick, completed the game in the final half-hour, putting Madrid above Girona at the top of La Liga.

About the game

Carlo Ancelotti openly challenged his team to play “fast and intense football.” Madrid duly obliged within the first ten minutes.

Unlike a string of poor starts this season – Madrid conceded four goals in the first 15 minutes of the match – the home team took an early lead. Bellingham played a series of fluid passes down Osasuna’s left, converting Dani Carvajal’s opening strike onto his left boot before firing into the net.

However, Osasuna, like in May’s Copa del Rey final against Madrid, dominated the tournament. More than half the league has conceded fewer shots than Madrid this season – most of them before Ancelotti’s defensive selection headaches – and the visitors opened the scoring through Kepa Arrizabalaga’s goal. The clearest chance fell to Ante Budimir as half-time approached, but Osasuna’s top scorer lacked the finesse Bellingham showed at similar pace half an hour later, missing the frame completely wall.

The interval broke Osasuna’s momentum. Forced to stop on the field by a resurgent Madrid, the away team defended unevenly. Bellingham fought through a series of red shirts, exchanging passes with Fede Valverde and slotting a nonchalant effort between the legs of Sergio Herrera to score his tenth goal of an already incredible season.

Osasuna, without long-suspended manager Jagoba Arrasate, collapsed in the final half-hour. Vinicius Junior took advantage of the chaotic situation mercilessly, crossing the middle of the field to cling to Valverde’s ball and then finishing off a high-speed counterattack. The Brazilian got past David Garcia with a long ball five minutes later, setting up Joselu for Madrid’s fourth goal.

Joselu was denied a brace from 12 yards after sending the penalty straight to Herrera. While that will certainly be on the striker’s mind, it had no impact on a match that turned into a comeback for Madrid after half-time.

Real Madrid player ratings (4-3-1-2)

Kepa Arrizabalaga – 7/10 – Wary when asked to act sporadically.

Dani Carvajal – 7/10 – He happily roams the left wing of Osasuna, where opponents other than Madrid are also having great success this season.

Aurélien Tchouameni – 6/10 – Starting in the unfamiliar position of centre-back, the natural midfielder appeared nervous when drawn into duels, but did not seem completely uncomfortable.

Antonio Rudiger – 5/10 – The only recognized centre-back on the field – or in the team – who does not exude a sense of steady composure.

Ferland Mendy – 6/10 – Keeps the pass safe – and successfully – but rarely gallops to support Vinicius.

Fede Valverde – 8/10 – Brought his usual aggressive style and showed artistry to take down Osasuna.

Eduardo Camavinga – 6/10 – Supported Modric in the early build-up and rushed to close as much space as possible without the ball. It’s a shame he can only be in one place at a time.

Luka Modric – 7/10 – Appointed to make a statement after watching the final two matches of the tournament from the bench, Modric initiated virtually all of Madrid’s movements and also watched the ball when not have shadow.

Jude Bellingham – 9/10 – A relentless attacking return will naturally attract attention, but Bellingham was also caught up in the dirtier defensive play of the game.

Joselu – 6/10 – The typical finesse of Madrid players may have been lacking, but Joselu moved Osasuna’s backline deep enough to create space for the likes of Bellingham to push forward.

Vinicius Junior – 6/10 – Constantly trying to increase the pace – of teammates and spectators – on a sleepy Saturday afternoon, but sometimes his mind works faster than his legs. The rust caused by his lingering injury has not completely disappeared.


Toni Kroos (67′ for Camavinga) – 6/10 – So comfortable that he high-fived a fan when taking a corner kick.

Rodrygo (72′ for Vinicius) – 5/10

Dani Ceballos (72′ for Bellingham) – 5/10

Brahim Diaz (79′ for Modric) – N/A

Lucas Vazquez (79′ for Carvajal) – N/A

Unused subs:
Pineiro (GK), Lunin (GK), Garcia, Carrillo
