A new angle of Lamine Yamal's 'phantom goal' for Barcelona against Real Madrid has emerged.

LaLiga came under fire during Sunday's El Clasico showdown at the Bernabeu after the 16-year-old thought he had given the Catalans the lead with a flick from a corner.

Yamal's effort looked to have beaten goalkeeper Andriy Lunin before the Ukrainian managed to palm the ball away from the goal. 

The clash was level at 1-1 at the time, but the Spanish top flight has no goal-line technology in play.

As a result, the referee waved play on and the VAR couldn't confirm if it had indeed crossed the line, with only two angles available on the replay.

However, a new angle of the supposed goal was shared in a clip on Reddit, where it appears as if the ball had crossed the goal-line. 

In the video, Real's stopper Lunin can be seen inside his goal and desperately attempting to shovel the ball away, yet the goal wasn't given.

This meant Yamal was unable to add the gong of youngest ever El Clasico goalscorer to his burgeoning list of achievements.
