Bellingham became the youngest Player in Europe 2 be Pocketed by 37 Yr Old Ramos

🚨❗WHAT A MILESTONE: J.Bellingham became the youngest Player in Europe’s Top 5 Leagues to be Pocketed by 37 Yr Old Sergio Ramos! 😂🤣

SBNation’s Sam Leveridge writes that Sevilla were able to shut down Jude Bellingham and succeed where many have failed in LaLiga this season, their game plan for doing so was clear from the start. That was obvious in the opening 10 minutes, when the England international had already been fouled twice.

This was only the third game in which Bellingham has failed to score for Real Madrid, following a win over Real Sociedad and a defeat to Atlético Madrid, but matched his highest figure of six fouls against him in a single game, from the opening day win over Athletic Club.

Sevilla only committed a total of 12 fouls, meaning that half were on the Real Madrid playmaker, while that figure was twice as many as were on the next most-fouled player, Vinícius Júnior, on three.

It was successful in limiting Bellingham, who registered only one shot from outside the box which was blocked. It reflected new Sevilla coach Diego Alonso’s approach to shutting him down and denying him any space between the lines, though Bellingham was still effective, winning a match-high nine duels.
