Jude Bellingham scored in the second half to earn Real Madrid a third straight win as they beat Celta Vigo 1-0 in La Liga to maintain a perfect start.
The 20-year-old once again led the Spanish giants’ attack, scoring for the fourth time in his first three league games following Rodrygo’s missed penalty earlier in the second half.
Real were dealt an early blow as Brazilian forward Vinícius Júnior was forced off with a leg problem after 15 minutes, a notable loss for Carlo Ancelotti’s side that comes on top of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and defender Éder Militão’s injuries.
Rodrygo had a golden chance to earn Real the lead in the 68th minute with a penalty after keeper Iván Villar tripped him in the box. However, Villar redeemed himself as he dived to his right to keep out the Brazilian forward’s spot-kick.
But England midfielder Bellingham did put Real in front 10 minutes from time with a header from Joselu’s touch off a corner to maintain his impressive start.
RB Leipzig struck five times in 25 minutes in the second half to power back from a goal down and crush visiting Stuttgart 5-1 for their first league win of the season.
Leipzig, who lost their Bundesliga opener 3-2 at Bayer Leverkusen, cancelled out Stuttgart’s first-half lead in the 51st minute through Benjamin Henrichs before Dani Olmo, Loïs Openda, Kevin Kampl and Xavi Simons completed the comeback.
Stuttgart stunned the hosts when Leipzig’s David Raum mistakenly passed the ball to Atakan Karazor who set up Serhou Guirassy for his third goal in two league games.
Myron Boadu scored a late equaliser as Ligue 1 leaders Monaco rallied to a 3-3 draw at Nantes to stay unbeaten.
After winning their first two games, Monaco got off to a really poor start and trailed by two goals after just 14 minutes. They then took a grip on the game and Takumi Minamino pulled one back in the 26th minute for his third goal of the season before Mostafa Mohamed restored a two-goal lead for the hosts.
France forward Wissam Ben Yedder then scored his fourth goal of the season before Boadu levelled from close range with a strike into the top right corner.
