Bellingham helps Real beat Union Berlin

Jude Bellingham scored a late goal to give Real Madrid a 1-0 win over Union Berlin in the UEFA Champions League.

Real Madrid struggled to break down the resilient defence of Union Berlin, who had been promoted to the Bundesliga just four years ago.

Bellingham’s goal was his sixth in six games for Real Madrid in all competitions, highlighting his impressive start with the club.

The home side had difficulty finding the back of the net throughout the match, with Union Berlin’s goalkeeper, Frederik Ronnow, making key saves and the Madrid attackers hitting the woodwork.

The absence of injured forward Vinicius Junior affected Real Madrid’s attacking dynamics in recent weeks, but Bellingham’s goals had helped maintain a perfect record in La Liga.

Bellingham made his Champions League debut for Real Madrid after transferring from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Union Berlin displayed a well-organized and disciplined defensive performance against the formidable Real Madrid side.

The match saw veteran Italian defender Leonardo Bonucci making his debut for Union Berlin.
Real Madrid had several opportunities to score, with Joselu missing a header and Ronnow making important saves.

Bellingham’s decisive goal came in the form of a deflected strike that fell to him in the box, and he scored from close range.

Overall, it was a hard-fought match, and Bellingham’s late goal proved to be the difference-maker for Real Madrid against a resilient Union Berlin team.
