Rodrygo, figure of Real Madrid

Madrid came out with a starting eleven without Vinícius and Rodrygo, who positioned himself in the absence of his compatriot.

In just eight minutes, the Brazilian received a change of wing from Brahim and faced the rival area to then profile and hit the ball with his foot. He scored a goal that opened the scoring at the Santiago Bernabéu.

After the first goal, the game was dominated by Madrid without force and they went into halftime with a one-goal lead.

The second half was more dynamic for both teams with opportunities, but Rodrygo once again shouldered the team to score the calming goal.

On a counterattack play started by Toni Kross, Bellingham gave him a pass aimed at Rodrygo, with just one movement, left a defender and scored from the right for his second goal of the game.

Rodrygo reached 10 goals in La Liga. With this double, Real Madrid is the only team that has 3 players with 10 or more scores: Jude Bellingham, Vinícius Jr and Rodrygo.
