Carlo Ancelotti has guided Real Madrid to two wins in two matches this season, as the team continues to progress in a 4-4-2 system.

Real Madrid defeated Almeria 3-1 away from home, despite scoring the first goal of the match.

The game didn’t start on a bright note for Real Madrid, as former Real Madrid boy Sergio Arribas opened the scoring for the home side, with an early goal.

Jude Bellingham stole the show as he scored a brace to put Madrid in front. The first was in the first-half, before the 20-minute mark.

Toni Kroos also had a goal ruled out for foul play, just before half-time.

Jude Bellingham was at hand again to put Madrid in front on the hour mark – his third goal in two games.

Vinicius Jr ensured the win was sealed in the 73rd minute, with a fine finish inside the box.

Carlo Ancelotti lined his team in a 4-4-2 formation, and it yielded result yet again.

Luka Modric was left on the bench for this one yet again, with Carlo Ancelotti going for a midfield of Aurelien Tchouameni, Toni Kroos, Jude Bellingham and Federico Valverde.

Bellingham has proven to be a good signing, and his influence has made the new system tick.
