Los Blancos conceded an early goal in the 19th minute when Leo Ostigard capitalized on a mistake by goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

However, the red-hot English attacker played a pivotal role in the comeback, providing an assist for Vinicius's equalizer and subsequently scoring a solo goal to complete the turnaround, the Guardian reports.

The Partenopei levelled the score through a penalty converted by Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski nine minutes into the second half.

Nevertheless, the 14-time champions had the final say when Alex Meret inadvertently scored an own goal in favour of the White Angels.

Following the match, Bellingham was named the Man of the Match for his exceptional performance. Grateful and filled with joy, the 20-year-old stated:

"Great results tonight in Naples. Great performance. Great support. Hala Madrid."
