He also has four goals and three assists in five Champions League games. He has a total of 26 goal contributions in 26 games for Real Madrid this season.

Bellingham is getting much praise for his recent performances and is even a favorite to win the 2024 Balon D' Or award. With this form, he will be on course to win it, especially if Madrid wins the Champions League and La Liga.

For these kinds of players, he is easily a target for defenders to take out. Bellingham is high-ranked on a list he probably wishes he wasn't a part of.
