Real Madrid vs Braga: Brazilians inspire Los Blancos
Bellingham, who has been the main man this season for Real, unexpectedly started this game on the bench.
But the 20-year-old was hardly missed as Brazilian superstar Vinicius Junior put on a show after he scored one and assisted another to inspire Real Madrid into the round of 16.
The 23-year-old scored the second of the day after his compatriot Rodrygo set up Brahim Diaz for the opener.
Vinicius’ goal against the Portuguese side was his first for the club in all competitions since October 7.
He then turned provider for Rodrygo, who would not be outshone by his countryman on the night in the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid pressed on for more goals without their English maestro but Braga held on to ensure the result was a respectable one.
Real Madrid booked their spot in the knockout stages with two games two spare after four wins in four matches.
