Bellingham beats Zidane and Beckham after the first Clásico of his career!

Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham made great history with his brace in Barcelona with his first Clásico in the Whites.

The England international managed to equalize for Carlo Ancelotti's battalion with a powerful shell in the 68th minute, then returned and scored the precious victory goal in the second minute of injury time.

Here are the most prominent records achieved by the England international as a result of these two goals, as he surpassed two great legends at Real, namely Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham.

  • Bellingham was the first player to score twice in his first Clásico in the twenty-first century, and the second overall in history after Pedro Maria in 1947.

  • Bellingham's first goal in Barcelona was Real Madrid's 300th goal in La Liga Clásico matches of all time.

  • Bellingham became the sixth English player to score in Clásico matches after Gary Lineker, Michael Owen, Lori Cunningham, Steve McManaman and Aurthr Johnson.

  • Bellingham scored in the Clásico from his debut, while David Beckham has never found the back of the net against the Catalan club over the course of his long career with Real.

  • Bellingham's tally of goals this season has reached 13, double the number of any other Real Madrid or Barcelona player this season.

  • Zinedine Zidane's best scoring season for Real Madrid was 12 goals, with Bellingham overtaking less than two months later at the Santiago Bernabéu.
