New Footage Reveals Jude Bellingham’s Celebration Against Real Betis Was Targeted at Fan Making Obscene Gesture
Jude Bellingham bespoke his goal celebration towards a singular fan amidst Real Betis during the weekend fixture. In this Saturday encounter, Bellingham continued his exceptional run with Los Blancos by scoring his 16th goal in 18 matches, contributing to a 1-1 draw against Real Betis.
The 20-year-old adeptly slotted the ball home after deftly controlling a delightful clipped pass from Brahim Diaz in the 53rd minute. Upon witnessing the ball nestle into the net, Bellingham executed his signature celebration, standing with pride and raising his arms before the Betis faithful.
In a pointed response to a specific supporter who had been expressing disdain through offensive gestures, the England international blew a kiss and gestured towards them. The incident can be observed in the accompanying video.
Despite Bellingham’s goal, the match ultimately concluded in a 1-1 draw, with Aitor Ruibal’s remarkable equalizer from outside the area leveling the scores. The outcome leaves room for Girona to claim the top spot with a victory over third-placed Barcelona on the following Sunday.
Betis even had an opportunity to secure a win in the last moments of the game, but Andriy Lunin made a crucial save to tip over Chadi Riyad’s header.

Reflecting on the match, Real Madrid’s manager Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged the competitiveness of both teams and expressed satisfaction with the result. Ancelotti remarked, “Given the effort Betis made, they didn’t deserve to lose. The result is good. We’re happy because it’s a tough stadium. They scored a fantastic goal. I am satisfied – you can’t win every match.”
Bellingham’s recent accomplishments include being the first player to score in each of his initial four Champions League appearances for Real Madrid. His notable impact since his £88 million move from Borussia Dortmund extends to 12 goals and two assists in 14 La Liga appearances, making him not only central to Real Madrid’s gameplay but also the top scorer for the team this season, with Brazil winger Rodrygo following closely with nine goals in all competitions.
