The effort meant Bellingham scored in both matches against their rivals, with both efforts being last-gasp winners.

In doing so, the midfielder becomes the first Real Madrid player to score in both games against Barcelona since Ronaldo during the 2014/15 campaign.

That season, Madrid finished second in La Liga behind Barcelona by two points, which is certainly not the case this season.

After their 3-2 victory, Carlo Ancelotti’s side are 11 points clear of Barca at the top of the table with just six matches remaining this season.

Since his arrival, Bellingham has scored 21 goals and contributed ten assists to his teammates.

He has scored 17 goals in the first division and is just one goal away from being tied with top scorer Artem Dovbyk.
