New Real Madrid signing Jude Bellingham has equalled a longstanding record held by the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid new boy Bellingham has become the first Los Blancos player to score in his first three games for the club since Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bellingham equals Ronaldo's record

Bellingham has adapted quickly to life in the Spanish capital following his £103m move from Borussia Dortmund, and he was crucial once again for Carlo Ancelotti's men as he bagged the winning goal for Madrid in their narrow 1-0 win over Celta Vigo on Friday night.

Real lost Vinicius Junior to injury and struggled to create much as they entered the final ten minutes of the game. 

However, Bellingham broke the deadlock with his fourth goal for the club, a fine header making him the first Real Madrid player since Ronaldo to net in their first three outings for the club.

The England international got off the mark for Madrid when he scored in the 2-0 opening-day win over Athletic Bilbao, and he followed that impressive debut up by bagging a brace in the 3-1 win at Almeria.
