Roundup: Real Madrid's Rodrygo shines bright as Los Blancos extend La Liga lead

Real Madrid reinforced their dominance atop La Liga with a commanding 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Rodrygo ignited the Bernabeu with a sensational strike early on, swiftly followed by another goal after halftime, solidifying Real Madrid's position at the league summit.

"Rodrygo played exceptionally well, his impact was evident with his top-notch performances," praised Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Addressing rumors of Kylian Mbappe's potential arrival, Rodrygo expressed confidence, stating, "I'm solely focused on our current season. Mbappe's possible signing isn't a concern for me. It would be a welcomed challenge for our coach next season."

The return of Eder Militao, after an eight-month hiatus due to injury, brought jubilation to the Bernabeu faithful as he made a cameo appearance during stoppage time.

Elsewhere, Girona showcased their resilience, securing a vital 3-2 victory over Real Betis, with Cristhian Stuani sealing the win with a late strike.

Artem Dovbyk's prolific form continued, notching his 16th league goal of the season, propelling Real Betis to a thrilling victory over Betis, despite Willian Jose's brace almost salvaging a draw.

Meanwhile, Real Sociedad's pursuit of Atletico Madrid tightened as Jon Pacheco Dozagarat's solitary goal secured a 1-0 triumph over Alaves, while Celta Vigo and Rayo Vallecano settled for a goalless draw.
