Almeria 1-3 Real Madrid: Jude Bellingham brace seals a comeback win

The England star has three goals in two games as Madrid make it back-to-back wins

Real Madrid came from behind to beat Almeria 3-1 on Saturday to make it six points from six in LaLiga this season. 

Jude Bellingham scored twice at the Power Horse Stadium to make it three goals in two since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund. 

Vinicius Jr. was also on target as Madrid recovered from conceding a second minute goal from former player Sergio Arribas. 

"We have to keep going like that," Vinicius told Real Madrid TV after the game. 

"Jude is always scoring goals. With me and all of the team helping, we'll have a lot of success this season... I hope it can be like my connection with Karim, which [gave us] a lot of goals and a lot of assists and good football."

Arribas gave Almeria a surprise early lead but Madrid struck back from Bellingham in the 20th minute, although there was a possible handball from the England star before he finished. 

The goal stood, though, and Madrid thought they led before the break when Toni Kroos scored, only for VAR to rule Dani Carvajal had committed a foul in the build up. 

Madrid did go ahead in the second half, Bellingham heading home to complete his brace on the hour mark. 

Vinicius added the third with a great goal to seal the points for Madrid. 

"I think I'm ten times better as a player than last season," Bellingham told Real Madrid TV. 

"I'm learning from these players. The level here is so high, I'm like a sponge taking it all in.

"I saw [Madrid comebacks] a lot of times on TV when I was a kid. I remember thinking 'they won't be able to do it' and in the end they did. 

"Now I'm here and I'm seeing it. I never thought we were going to lose, I looked at the players' faces and there was no panic."
