Jude Bellingham’s goal came 37 minutes into his La Liga debutEngland midfielder Jude Bellingham scored on his competitive Real Madrid debut as they began their La Liga season with victory at Athletic Bilbao.The 20-year-old, who joined the Spanish giants for £88.5m from Borussia Dortmund this summer, got Real’s second when he volleyed in from close range.He is the first English player to score in a competitive game for Real since David Beckham in 2007.Rodrygo had opened the scoring with a near-post finish at San Mames.In an impressive performance, Bellingham caught the eye early in the second half with a run from deep inside his own half, skipping between two Athletic players before racing to the edge of their box.Bellingham played in all four of Real’s pre-season friendlies, scoring in a 2-0 win over Manchester United in Texas.Former England and Manchester United midfielder Beckham also scored on his league debut for Real in 2003.Real were runners-up in La Liga last season, finishing 10 points behind Barcelona.”Bellingham is a fantastic kid, he displays quality, personality, he is a hard worker. He is just fantastic,” manager Carlo Ancelotti told Movistar Plus.”He is very motivated to be here, he is a fantastic player and a very, very important signing.”We were on fire and motivated, we had a very good collective commitment, attitude, won many challenges, worked together defensively, a clean sheet was positive… it was a complete game, a very high level first half and a second half of total control.” Line-upsAth BilbaoFormation 4-2-3-11Simón18De Marcos3Vivian4Paredes15Lekue16Ruíz de Galarreta6Vesga11Nico Williams30Gómez10Muniain9Williams1Simón18De Marcos3VivianBooked at 67mins4Paredes15LekueSubstituted forGarcía de Albénizat 71’minutes16Ruíz de Galarreta6VesgaSubstituted forHerreraat 64’minutes11Nico WilliamsSubstituted forBerenguerat 45’minutes30GómezSubstituted forSancetat 45’minutes10MuniainBooked at 4minsSubstituted forGuruzetaat 45’minutes9WilliamsBooked at 87minsSubstitutes7Berenguer8Sancet12Guruzeta13Agirrezabala19García de Albéniz20Villalibre21Herrera22García23Nolaskoain24Martón29Ares Djaló33PradosReal MadridFormation 4-1-2-1-213Lunin2Carvajal Ramos3Militão4Alaba20García Torres18Tchouaméni15Valverde12Camavinga5Bellingham7Vinícius Júnior11Rodrygo13Lunin2Carvajal Ramos3MilitãoSubstituted forRüdigerat 50’minutes4AlabaBooked at 76mins20García Torres18Tchouaméni15Valverde12CamavingaSubstituted forKroosat 71’minutes5Bellingham7Vinícius JúniorSubstituted forModricat 80’minutes11RodrygoSubstituted forJoseluat 80’minutesSubstitutes6Nacho8Kroos10Modric14Joselu16Odriozola17Vázquez21Díaz22Rüdiger30González31CañizaresReferee:Jesús Gil ManzanoAttendance:48,927Live TextMatch ends, Athletic Club 0, Real Madrid 2.Second Half ends, Athletic Club 0, Real Madrid 2.Toni Kroos (Real Madrid) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Foul by Gorka Guruzeta (Athletic Club).Toni Kroos (Real Madrid) wins a free kick on the left wing.Foul by Ander Herrera (Athletic Club).Attempt missed.
