Outrageous Bellingham nutmeg against Atletico screams Zidane, watch

After a hot start to his Real Madrid career, has scored only one goal in eight games. But before we over-analyze the 20-year-old's apparent “drought,” let's explore what else he's been doing on the pitch, like pulling off behind-the-back passes like Zidane.

On Sunday, Bellingham continued to show his class with a mouthwatering behind-the-back nutmeg go teammate Joselu. The subtle flick reminded Real Madrid fans of , Los Blanco's previous number 5 magician. 

As you can see in the fan and official clips, Bellingham slices the ball through the legs of Atletico Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente. Unfortunately for Bellingham, it didn't lead to an assist. And luckily for the embarrassed Llorente, he'd score his side's late equalizer in stoppage time to salvage the point. 

Bellingham won the most chances (4) and duels (10) against Atletico last night. He's industrious on both ends of the pitch. 

Bellingham has shown plenty of magic moments in his debut season, instantly earning him hero status at the . The extra spotlight, of course, put him under the radar. Last week's opponents, Getafe, tried to accuse him of calling fellow international Mason Greenwood a r*pist on the pitch. 

Jude and Madrid square off against unexpected La Liga title challengers next Saturday. Madrid currently maintains a two-point at the top of the table. The match-up is huge for the title race.
