Rodrygo’s brace leads Real to 2-0 win over Bilbao


MADRID: Rodrygo scored a goal in each half as Real Madrid secured a 2-0 home win over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, consolidating their position at the top of the La Liga table.

Real have 75 points, eight ahead of second-placed Barcelona and 10 ahead of third-placed Girona. Bilbao is fourth with 56 points.

Rodrygo opened the scoring after eight minutes, calmly sending the ball into the far corner after a calm run to the edge of the area, with Bilbao’s defense failing to neutralize the Brazilian winger.

In the 73rd minute, Rodrygo was played free on the wing by Jude Bellingham on a counter-attack, giving him time and space to run into the box and guide the ball into the bottom corner.
