Jude Bellingham created goalscoring history for Real Madrid on Sunday when he found the back of the net in the capital outfit's 3-0 victory over Cadiz in La Liga.
The 20-year-old's goal made it 14 goals for the campaign, and he has now surpassed the record held by Cristiano Ronaldo, Alfredo Di Stefano and Pruden Sanchez for goals in their first 15 official matches for Los Blancos.
Ronaldo, Di Stefano and Pruden all managed 13 in their opening 15 games for the club, but Bellingham moved onto 14 with his effort on Sunday, creating history during an incredible start to life at Bernabeu.
Bellingham has 11 goals and two assists in 12 La Liga appearances, while he has contributed three goals and one assist in three Champions League outings.
The England international had missed Real Madrid's clash with Valencia before the international break due to a shoulder issue, but he was able to return against Cadiz, playing 78 minutes of the match.
"Jude is fine. He still has problems in his shoulder but he feels fine with the protection," Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti told reporters after Sunday's clash.
Ancelotti now has a decision to make on the involvement of Bellingham against Napoli on Wednesday, as Los Blancos have already booked their spot in the knockout round of the competition.
Rodrygo also scored twice against Cadiz, with the forward starting after overcoming a knee issue, but he was withdrawn in the latter stages of the match.
Ancelotti played down fears of an issue after the game, revealing that the Brazil international was not initially named in the first XI, but he had to step in due to a problem for Brahim Diaz.
"He (Brahim) suffered from an intestinal problem just before the game. Unlucky. I wanted to give Rodrygo some rest because he only trained yesterday after a long trip from Brazil," said the head coach.
Ancelotti also calmed suggestions that Luka Modric had picked up an injury, with the experienced midfielder substituted in the second half due to a muscle overload.
"It's an overload. Just that. Modric was very good. He played in a different position today, very good in defence," said the manager on Sunday.
Real Madrid currently have a number of players currently on the sidelines due to fitness problems, with Arda Guler, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and Vinicius Junior unavailable for selection.No Data Analysis info
