With every game played, Jude Bellingham continues to prove why Real Madrid paid a whopping amount of €103 million.

The midfielder showcased his talent in the Los Blancos’ away fixture against Almeria on Saturday night by scoring two goals and providing an assist.

The 20-year-old scored an equaliser in the 19th minute after the Los Blancos suffered an early shock with their academy graduate Sergio Arribas scoring in the third minute on a brilliant counter-attack.

Bellingham then scored the winner for his team in the 60th minute on a cross from Toni Kroos.

The midfielder made a fantastic run in the box and scored a header to put his side ahead of the hosts.

Just 13 minutes after scoring, he assisted Vinicius Junior and sealed the deal for his team after a tough game.

He also became the first Real Madrid player since the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo to score in the first two games.

Real Madrid fans praised the youngster for beyond-his-years maturity.

Playing as an attacking midfielder, Bellingham has been a key to the Whites’ press and overall attacking sequences.

After the match, the midfielder talked about how his time at the Spanish capital is going and discussed what it is like to play for the 14-time Champions League winner.

"I am 10 times better now than I was last year. I learned a lot playing with these guys," he began.

"I hope the fans are happy. If they're happy, we're happy. No matter the result, they always show us so much love.

"Real Madrid's comeback DNA is real, I used to see it on TV when I was little, thinking "surely they can't do it" and then they do it. Now that I'm here, I see it, there's no panic anywhere. We come back,” he said.

Earlier in Madrid’s league opener against Athletic Bilbao at San Memes, which is considered one of the toughest stadiums to play in La Liga, the English footballer proved that he is capable of playing in any kind of atmosphere.

He scored from a delightful volley in the 36th minute during a 2-0 win over the Basque club.
