Real Madrid locked horns with Almeria at the Power Horse Stadium earlier this evening as they hoped to secure a victory on the road in La Liga. Los Blancos made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the third minute when Sergio Arribas found the back of the net for the home team. However, Jude Bellingham equalised for Real Madrid in the 19th minute as the two teams went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.
Bellingham scored again for Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the 60th minute before Vinicius Jr. killed the game off just 13 minutes later. The contest ended with Real Madrid earning a hard-fought 3-1 win away from home.
