Bellingham has scored 17 goals for Madrid since joining in June and also provided five assists prior to Sunday’s clash against Barcelona.

He then made it six assists for the season after just ten minutes in Saudi Arabia, pulling off arguably one of his best passes to date.

The England international had possession in the centre circle and looked set to lose possession as he was being closed down by two Barcelona players.

However, he spotted the run of Vinicius Jr and managed to thread a fantastic ball through the opposition to allow his teammate a clear sight on goal.

Sunday’s match is being played at the KSU Stadium, the home of Cristiano Ronaldo’s team Al Nassr, with Vinicius Jr taking inspiration from the Real Madrid legend.

After his goal, he did the Portuguese legend’s iconic ‘Siu’ celebration in front of the adoring fans.

Vinicius Jr then added a second goal just minutes later, this time rolling the ball in at the back post after Barca’s offside trap backfired.
