After a hat-trick of Jude Bellingham winning Real Madrid’s Player of the Month Award, the streak has been broken.

Rodrygo Goes, who enjoyed a terrific run over the past few weeks, has won the club’s Player of the Month Award for November.

The Brazilian international made a very slow start to the season which even led to question marks over his place in the team.

But the former Santos FC wonderkid has stepped up in a big way in recent weeks, putting in a series of clutch performances to help Real Madrid reclaim top spot in La Liga and lock down the first place in their UEFA Champions League group.

Rodrygo happy with run of form

After being rewarded with the Player of the Month award for his performances, Rodrygo spoke to the club’s media and expressed his happiness saying:

“First of all, I would like to thank the fans. The truth is that it has been a very important and happy month for me. Everything went very well and I hope to have other months like this one.”

The 22-year-old also discussed his current run of form, stating that he felt good and that he was getting better and better with each passing day.

“I’m very well, I’m getting better every day. I think you can see that on the pitch. I’m already more comfortable, I can show my best version and in every game, I show it. I’m very happy and I just want to continue like this,” the Brazilian stated.

Rodrygo in fine form

Real Madrid played five matches in all competitions during the month of November, and Rodrygo was the club’s main protagonist during that run.

The 22-year-old netted as many as six goals in those five matches while also setting up four more for his teammates. Before that, Rodrygo had scored just twice across all competitions.

The Brazilian forward was on target again this past weekend against Granada, and has now taken his tally for the season to nine goals and five assists from 20 matches.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
