WHAT HAPPENED? The England international survived a VAR check as he netted his second Real Madrid goal in as many matches against Almeria. The move started with Dani Carvajal sending a cross inside the box from the right side which was met by Federico Valverde. The Uruguayan headed the ball towards Bellingham who chested it down and after an initial ricochet off an opponent, the midfielder found the back of the net.

The referee consulted VAR to see if the Madrid star was in an offside position when he received Valverde's header but the decision went in favour of him as the goal stood.
