Jude Bellingham extended his superb scoring run since joining Real Madrid after striking twice in a 4-0 win over Osasuna to help maintain its lead of the Spanish league on Saturday.

Bellingham made it 10 goals in 10 games in all competitions since he arrived in Spain this summer with goals in the ninth and 54th minutes at the Santiago Bernabéu.

The 20-year-old England midfielder leads the league with eight goals. He has also scored in both of Madrid’s Champions League games, including a 3-2 win at Napoli this week.

Vinícius Júnior and Joselu Mato scored the hosts’ third and fourth goals against Osasuna.

Madrid remained two points ahead of Girona, which won 1-0 at Cadiz. Barcelona is four points behind Madrid before the defending champions visit Granada on Sunday.

GARCÍA GOAL FOR GIRONA

Aleix García’s goal in the 59th minute was enough to give Girona the win against a Cadiz team that played 80 minutes with a man down.

The midfielder scored with a strike from the edge of the area after he was set up by right back Yan Couto.

Cadiz played with 10 men from 10th minute after Darwin Machis saw a direct red card for a foul on Yangel Herrera.

Cadiz is 12th after losing its first home game of the season.

“It was going to be a tough game since they always press more at home, but the game was in our hands after the sending off,” García said. “We knew that with 10 they would pack their area, and when Yan finally found me I was able to put it in.”

Girona, a team from northeast Catalonia partly owned by Manchester City’s Abu Dhabi ownership, had entered the previous round as leader after winning six games in a row before it lost 3-0 to Madrid last weekend.
