In the sphere of European soccer, English midfielder Jude Bellingham has emerged as a true phenomenon, carving his name into the history books of Real Madrid. His remarkable feat in each of the first four Champions League matches set a new standard for the club, cementing his position as a rising star.

Bellingham's goalscoring spree began in the opening game against Union Berlin, where his contribution proved crucial in securing the victory. Continuing his impressive form, he found the back of the net in the subsequent encounter against Braga, further cementing his reputation as a formidable force.

Despite missing the fourth round match against Braga, Bellingham came back with renewed vigor in the fifth round, finding the back of the net once again and confirming his status as a goal-scoring machine. With 15 goals in his 16 appearances for Real Madrid, he has shown a remarkable ability to shine on the biggest stage.

Bellingham is the backbone of Real Madrid. If he continues at the same pace, many records set by the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo will be threatened, although, of course, it is too early to talk about it. His impressive performance did not go unnoticed, with Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti showering him with praise.

Ancelotti compared Bellingham's entry into the penalty area to a "motorcycle", highlighting his electrifying speed and attacking prowess. Ancelotti went on to praise Bellingham's quick adaptation to Real Madrid's style of play, stating that his performance exceeded expectations, surprising fans, teammates and rivals.

Bellingham's versatility extends beyond scoring goals, as he showed against Napoli by providing the assist that resulted in Joselo's goal. With his exceptional talent, unwavering determination and unwavering work ethic, Jude Bellingham has established himself as a cornerstone of Real Madrid's attacking arsenal.

His rise to prominence has shocked the soccer world, and if he continues to perform at this extraordinary level, he is poised to break records. Whoever watched this Englishman during this season must admit that the comparison with Cristiano Ronaldo is justified.
