Three points: Bellingham leads Real to victory after going behind

Three points: Bellingham leads Real to victory after going behind

Los Blancos had taken control early in Almeria but they had fallen behind even earlier. Real let themselves be taken by surprise in the third minute of the game, of all things Madrid’s homegrown Arribas, released by the royals this summer, easily headed in on the counterattack – and apologized instead of celebrating.

A not atypical moment of Madrid inattention was followed by the game control mentioned, garnished with a few chances. Tchouameni headed in from a corner but was not placed enough (7′), Bellingham’s header also failed (10′), Valverde’s attempt was blocked (15′).

Shortly thereafter, the bell rang, Bellingham reacted at the speed of thought and shot in – no offside, second league goal (19th). Earned. Rodrygo was missing centimeters to turn the game around (27th), which Real slipped more and more just before the break.

Before the break, Real starts to swim

Baba felt Lunin with a powerful long-range shot (34′), Ramazani was completely free to head at Real’s substitute keeper (38′). Rüdiger blocked Ramazani a little later (41′), in another scene he shot just wide from the back (45’+2′).

In the sixth minute of stoppage time, Kroos fired in from the other side, which at that point would have been quite flattering. But the supposed lead was quickly conceded because of a foul by Carvajal in the formation.

The second period started at eye level, especially since both teams were now planning to balance possession a little more. However, Real was initially unable to use spaces to counter.

Bellingham gives Kroos the idea

In the 60th minute, it was a deep run from Bellingham that called Kroos onto the scene. Because Luis Maximiano rushed out of his box at the wrong moment, Bellingham was able to head in easily. While Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo remained largely inconspicuous, the ex-Dortmunder turned the game around for Real. Third goal in second division use.

The game was turned, but not yet decided. That changed in the 73rd minute – and Bellingham was involved again. He immediately pushed Valverde’s cross pass to Vinicius Junior, who thoughtfully hit the crease. At the other end, Suarez had just headed past (71′), it was Almeria’s last good opportunity.

After a long stoppage time, stabilized guests from Madrid didn’t let anything go wrong, and they also won the second league game with a two-goal advantage. Real will play Celta in Vigo next Friday (9.30 p.m.).
