Real Madrid 4 v 1 Villarreal: Jude Bellingham header helps host return to top of La Liga

Jude Bellingham continued his fine goalscoring form as Real Madrid beat Villarreal to return to the top of La Liga.

The England midfielder headed in a superb cross from Luka Modric to claim his 13th league goal of the season and put Real ahead in the 25th minute.

Rodrygo added a second for Real after an offside decision was overturned by a Video Assistant Referee (VAR), but Jose Luis Morales halved the deficit after the break.

However, Villarreal’s hopes were short-lived as Brahim Diaz and Modric scored within four minutes of each other in the second half to seal the three points.
