The England international was unable to add to his tally of 10 goals this season during Saturday's La Liga showdown

Jude Bellingham has sent a message of support to Vinicius Jr after Saturday's match between Sevilla and Real Madrid.

The match ended 1-1 at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium after Dani Carvajal struck following an own goal from David Alaba.

However, the fixture was marred after Vinicius Jr was allegedly racially abused.

The Brazil international shared an image of a supporter seemingly making a racist gesture in his direction.

Sevilla confirmed a fan had then been kicked out of the stadium, saying in a statement: "Sevilla FC would like to communicate that, after detecting xenophobic and racist behaviour, a member of the public was identified, ejected from the stadium and handed over to legal authorities.

"The individual will also be subject to the club’s vigorous internal disciplinary protocols and have their membership revoked.

"Sevilla FC condemns all racist and xenophobic behaviour and will work closely with the authorities to ensure that action is taken accordingly.

"This behaviour does not belong at Sevilla FC."

And Bellingham has shown his class with a post on Instagram.

The 20-year-old, who was unable to add to his tally of 10 goals so far this season, shared an image of his team-mate.

He then accompanied it with the words: "Always with you brother."

Bellingham has struck up a good rapport with his team-mate during his short stint at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The pair have created a strong relationship on the pitch, helping Los Blancos enjoy a strong start to the new season.

And they're also close off the field, too, with the duo frequently going to dinner together.

Bellingham has also shared a picture of himself and Sergio Ramos on Instagram, too.

Ramos played against Real for the first time since leaving the club back in 2021.

He had previously spent 16 years at the Bernabeu, winning four Champions League titles during that time.

Ramos seemed to elbow Bellingham in the face during the match between Sevilla and Real.

But the England international didn't seem to hold any grudges and uploaded a post of the pair with a love heart emoji attached.

Meanwhile, Real were aggrieved by some of the decisions of the referee during the game.

But manager Carlo Ancelotti refused to be critical of Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea due to fears of a potential suspension.

“Irony is the only way, because if I speak my mind, I would miss a lot of games," said the Italian. "What I like the most is to sit on the bench for Real Madrid games, so to avoid suspensions, I don’t say what I think.”

Ancelotti also said he was happy to see Ramos again, despite the Spain international producing a typically combative display.

"No, I love to see him, to greet him because obviously I have a special affection for him," he said.

"If I'm here today it's above all because of Sergio Ramos.

"If he didn't score the goal in the final [of the Champions League in 2014] I probably wouldn't be here.

"For this and for everything he has done for this club, everyone is very fond of him, especially me in particular.

"I'm sure he's going to have a great game and then if he scores a goal, hopefully not, he can do whatever he wants."

Real Madrid are next in action against Braga in the Champions League on Tuesday night (8pm).

They currently sit top of the group after victories over Napoli and Union Berlin so far.

Real are hoping to regain their European crown, having missed out on the trophy to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City last season.
