BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Jude Bellingham scored in injury time to complete Real Madrid’s 2-1 comeback over Getafe on Saturday, extending his scoring run to a Spanish league-leading five in four matches since joining his new club.
The 20-year-old England midfielder is having a dream start since arriving at Madrid from Borussia Dortmund for 130 million euros ($142 million). His goals have done more than any of his teammates to give Madrid four victories in as many games.
Getafe struck first through former Madrid youth player Borja Mayoral in the 11th minute.
New Madrid striker Joselu Mato equalized in the 47th. Getafe held firm until the final minutes when Bellingham took advantage of a fumbled save by goalkeeper David Soria to tap in the winner.
This was Madrid’s first home game of the season at its renovated Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, which has a retractable roof.
