Jude Bellingham forms an illustrious quartet of Real Madrid stars to have won the UEFA Champions League title in their home country.

Bellingham, who was born in England and has been astonishing this campaign, helped Los Blancos clinch their 15th honor in the competition at Wembley, London.

Jude Bellingham was seen ecstatic after the full-time whistle, as he celebrated the special day in the company of his family – father, Mark, mother, Denise, and brother, Jobe.

The Englishman looks to be on a path to greatness, and he has cemented his name in the hearts of Real Madrid supporters, with his mesmeric display throughout the 2023/24 campaign.

Bellingham joins Portuguese great and arguably the greatest player in Los Blancos history, Cristiano Ronaldo, to win the UEFA Champions League title in their home country.

The Spanish side beat Borussia Dortmund in the 2024 final, through a header from Dani Carvajal in the 74th minute and a well-taken goal by Vinicius Jr 7 minutes before the end of the affair.

Ronaldo In Lisbon, Portugal

Ronaldo guided Real Madrid to win the trophy in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2014, with the La Liga champions defeating Atletico Madrid 4-1 in a dramatic final.

It appeared like the trophy was slipping away from Los Blancos after Diego Godin had netted in the 36th minute.

Sergio Ramos miraculously got the equalizer for Real Madrid at the 90th-minute mark, before Gareth Bale, Marcelo, and Cristiano Ronaldo secured the victory after extra-time.

Ronaldo was also emotional on the night, as he celebrated electrically alongside family and friends.

Gareth Bale In Cardiff, Wales

Gareth Bale is the other player to have won the UEFA Champions League title in their home country, with the Welshman claiming the crown in Cardiff in 2017.

Bale was part of the Los Blancos side that smashed Juventus 4-1 in the final, courtesy of a brace from Ronaldo, and goals from Casemiro and Marco Asensio.

Gareth Bale was introduced in the 77th minute of that game, replacing Karim Benzema, and that triumph made Real Madrid become the first team to retain the UEFA Champions League in the modern era.

Karim Benzema Won The UEFA Champions In Paris, France

Karim Benzema completes the quartet, with the Frenchman helping the Spanish giants clinch the title by defeating Liverpool in Paris, France, in 2022.

Vinicius Jr scored the lone goal of the encounter, following a well delivered cross towards the back post.

Four Real Madrid Players Have Won The Champions League Title In Their Home Country

The competition will have a new format next season, and it will be interesting to see if Carlo Ancelotti’s side can continue their dominance in the tournament.

Real Madrid have made the UEFA Champions League their bread and butter, with the manner in which they have exuded dominance.

Despite the exit of key names at the club; Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, and Karim Benzema amongst others, the team has remained at their top status, showing teams that they are the kings of the European top-tier competition.

Toni Kroos played his last game for the club in the UEFA Champions League final, and he has bowed out on a high, having contributed his quota to the club’s success.

It will be interesting to see how Real Madrid fill the void that Kroos has created in midfield.
