20-year-old prodigy Jude Bellingham switched from Dortmund to Real Madrid last season. He became an ‘ace’ as soon as he arrived at Real Madrid. He looks just like him.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who became an ace upon arriving at Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009. He made history at Real Madrid. In nine seasons, from 2009 to 2018, he scored 450 goals in 438 games. He is the number one individual goal scorer in Real Madrid history.

Bellingham is following in Ronaldo’s footsteps. After scoring his debut goal in his Spanish Primera Liga (La Liga) debut, Bellingham scored in each of his opening four games. It was the first time a player has scored in four consecutive games since debuting for Real Madrid since Ronaldo in 2009. Bellingham is now the top scorer in La Liga with six goals.
The momentum continued in the UCL. In the first leg of the Group C match against Union Berlin, he scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory. In the second leg against Napoli, he added another goal in a 3-2 win. Scored in two consecutive games in the UCL on his Real Madrid debut. This is also a first since Ronaldo.
The BBC said, “Real Madrid have a new hero. He is a little Alfredo Di Stefano, a little Zinedine Zidane. The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema is not felt. The hero of Real Madrid is Bellingham.”
Britain’s ‘The Sun’ also wrote: “Bellingham is following in Ronaldo’s footsteps. He has scored eight goals in nine games for Real Madrid. He has played an essential role in Real 토토 Madrid’s victories.
