Jude Bellingham can't be stopped.

The English midfielder continued his red-hot start to life at Real Madrid by scoring deep into stoppage time Wednesday, seizing a 1-0 victory over Union Berlin in the Champions League.

A powerful shot from Federico Valverde in the 94th minute ricocheted into Bellingham's path for an easy tap-in.

"I am new to the club, but I have had a TV since I was little, and since I can't remember what age, I have been watching Real Madrid make comebacks from situations you thought impossible," Bellingham told TNT Sports postmatch, according to BBC Sport.

It was the 20-year-old's sixth goal in six games with Madrid, including four game-winning strikes.

For Union Berlin, it was a bitter end to a promising evening. Four years after being promoted to Germany's top flight, Union Berlin were within minutes of ending Real Madrid's 68-match streak of scoring a goal at home.

But a famous result against the 14-time Champions League winners didn't come to fruition, as manager Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid side emerged from the Group C contest victorious and maintained an unblemished record in all competitions to start the campaign.
