Real Madrid 4-0 Girona: Los Blancos’ Player Ratings as Jude Bellingham scores a brace to take them top | La Liga 2023-24


Real Madrid smashed Girona 4-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga on Saturday, February 10. The result sees them extend their lead at the top of the league to five points.

The hosts entered this contest on the back of a great run of form. Prior to this contest, they had lost just once across their last 10 games. The other results were eight wins and one draw. Real were also unbeaten in La Liga since their defeat to Atletico Madrid in September and were looking to extend that run.

Their last outing was a 1-1 draw against Atleti as both teams failed to capitalize. However, Carlo Ancelotti went full strength as he looked to show Girona who the big boys in town are.

Real Madrid made an electric start to the game as Federico Valverde put Vinicius Junior through on goal to open the scoring in the sixth minute. Despite the visitors having slightly more of the ball in the first period, Real held their own and played well.

The hosts doubled their lead after 35 minutes. This time, Vinicius turned provider as he set up Jude Bellingham to make it 2-0. Girona, on the other hand, attempted just one shot off-target in a dull first half for them as they trailed by two heading into half-time.

Los Blancos made a strong start to the second half as well. Bellingham added his second for the evening with a smart finish to make it 3-0 after 54 minutes. However, he was taken off injured shortly after and Real Madrid will hope it’s not serious.

Vinicius then provided his second assist of the game as he set up compatriot Rodrygo to make it 4-0 after 61 minutes. Girona had no reply for Real’s quality whatsoever as they failed to hit the target throughout the game and ended up losing comprehensively.

On that note, let’s take a look at Los Blancos’ player ratings.
