Real Madrid worked very Wednesday to open their Champions League season with a win. She waited until the 94th minute to see Jude Bellingham beat Union Berlin (0-1) and bounce off the Bernabeu.

"He was born to play for us," praised veteran Blancos defender Nacho, who, like others, raves about the 20-year-old talent, who joined the Spanish Cup holders this summer and dominates them with a high hand.
Since the start of the season, Ballygham has scored six goals for Real. He did so in six games (five of them in the league), in all of which his team celebrated a victory – a perfect start to the season.
Those numbers put the great Englishman on par with Cristiano Ronaldo, who also scored six goals in his first six games for Real Madrid in 2009. In fact, only two other players have done so for the Blancos – Isko in 213 and Marco Asensio in 2016.
