Rodrygo: six brands for a perfect night

The Brazilian has only needed six games to score his first five goals with Madrid. The Vulture and 7 took eleven and ten respectively.

If there are two irruptions of young players remembered in recent decades, they are Butragueño and Raúl. They are now joined by a Rodrygo who goals more easily than those who preceded him by wearing the white shirt. The Brazilian has only needed six games and 370 minutes to score his first five goals with Real Madrid. The two mythical 7 only achieved two goals in their first half-dozen games.

Butragueño debuted on February 5, 1984 at the Ramón de Carranza against Cádiz. He was 20 years, 6 months and 11 days. His appearance was explosive. He entered the break and in half an hour (in the 60 'and 89') he scored two goals to contribute to the white comeback. But El Buitre, current director of Institutional Relations of the white club, needed 11 games and 665 minutes to collect his first five goals with Madrid. His first hat-trick would take almost a year and 31 games to arrive. He did it on December 12, 1984 in the 6-1 victory in the round of 16 of the UEFA Cup against Anderlecht, tracing the 3-0 that the Belgians had inflicted in the first leg. That was the night the scenic fear was born.

The first millennials began their adolescence when, a decade later, Raúl emerged to take over from Butragueño and become the idol of a whole generation of Madridistas. On October 29, 1994, Jorge Valdano was confident against Zaragoza in a kid who two weeks earlier caused a sensation in Second B scoring five goals with Real Madrid C in a match against Corralejo. He was 17 years, 4 months and 2 days. He debuted as a scorer in his second game, scoring in a derby against Atlético. But Raul needed 10 games and 586 minutes to collect his first half dozen goals. It took 43 games to make his first hat-trick, on October 18, 1995 in a group stage match of the Champions League against Ferencvaros. Of that night a record endures: the one of the youngest author of a triplet in Champions. He marked it with 18 years and 113 days. Rodrygo, who has been his pupil this season in Castilla, has achieved it with 18 years and 301 days.

Six records in which Rodrygo

entered Rodrygo Goes's party forced him to put his name on a good number of brands. At the national level, he became the youngest Brazilian to score in the Champions League beating Marquinhos, who did it with 19 years.

His 'perfect' hat-trick is already the history of the Champions League as he is the youngest player to achieve it that way (goal with the right, with the left and head) beating Kylian Mbappé. It is also the second earliest in the history of Real Madrid, since only Raul managed to score a triplet with the white shirt with less age. He also stays behind Raul in another brand: being the third youngest player to score for the white club.

His double was seen and not seen getting the second fastest in the history of the white club and the first fastest in the history of the Champions League.
