Jude Bellingham’s Brace Leads Los Blancos to Commanding Victory Over Title Rivals Girona

Real Madrid Crush Girona 4-0 to Strengthen Grip on La Liga Summit

Real Madrid delivered a masterclass performance at the Bernabeu as they routed closest title challengers Girona 4-0, with Jude Bellingham stealing the spotlight with a brace. Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo also found the net for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who now sit five points clear at the top of La Liga.

The match, billed as a crucial showdown between the top two teams in the league, turned out to be a one-sided affair dominated by the hosts. Vinicius Junior set the tone early on with a stunning strike just six minutes into the game, putting Madrid ahead and setting the stage for their dominant display.

Bellingham doubled Madrid’s lead in the 36th minute, capitalizing on a well-crafted pass from Vinicius to beat the goalkeeper and extend their advantage. Despite Girona’s hopes for a comeback in the second half, Bellingham dashed their aspirations with his second goal, before being substituted due to a rolled ankle.

Even in Bellingham’s absence, Madrid continued to assert their superiority, with Vinicius instrumental once again in setting up Rodrygo for Madrid’s fourth goal. Although Joselu had a chance to make it five from the penalty spot, his effort rebounded off the post.

With this commanding victory, Real Madrid now sits comfortably atop the La Liga table with 61 points from 24 matches, five points ahead of Girona, who remain on 56 points.

Girona, arriving at the Bernabeu with hopes of challenging for the title, were outclassed by a Madrid side firing on all cylinders. Despite their spirited performance, they were unable to contain the attacking prowess of Bellingham and Vinicius.
