Jude Bellingham leads Real Madrid to LaLiga title in sensational first season after Barcelona lose at Girona

JUDE BELLINGHAM has been crowned a LaLiga champion with Real Madrid for the first time after Barcelona fell to defeat against Girona.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side put one hand on the title earlier today after a 3-0 win over Cadiz thanks to goals from Brahim Diaz, Bellingham and Joselu.

That then piled the pressure on bitter rivals Barca, who travelled to third-place Girona knowing they had to win to stay in the race.

However, the City Group-owned minnows – who have defied the odds to mount a top four charge this season – proved to be too big a hurdle to climb for Xavi’s side.

Barcelona got off the perfect start with a goal from former Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen after just three minutes.

But division top scorer Artem Dovbyk answered with a goal of his own for Girona only a minute later.

The Blaugrana took the lead once again on the stroke of half-time through Robert Lewandowski.

Girona though did not fancy being beaten at home for just the second time this season – their sole defeat at the Estadi Montilivi coming against Real Madrid – and surged back into the lead.

Two goals from super sub Portu and a strike from Miguel Gutiérrez saw Girona take a 4-2 lead.

And with Barcelona then unable to comeback, it saw Madrid crowned champions for a record 36th time.

However, Bellingham and his team-mates have been banned from partying tonight by Ancelotti.
