Jude Bellingham scored twice for Real Madrid, including the game-winning goal in injury time, as they overcame a goal deficit to defeat Barcelona 2-1 in the El Clasico.
Barcelona got off to the ideal start, with midfielder Ilkay Gundogan opening the score in the sixth minute from close range after the visitors made a poor defensive error.
However, Bellingham took full use of his two second-half opportunities, and Barca, who struck the woodwork twice, paid a price for their inability to turn their domination into goals.
In the 68th minute, he scored the first goal with an incredible long-range shot into the upper-left corner. Later, in stoppage time, he scored the second goal after obtaining a ball from Luka Modric inside the area.

Regarding Bellingham’s impact, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti remarked, “We’re all shocked by how many goals Jude has scored. He is amazing and remarkable.”The dynamic was entirely altered by the equalizer. Barcelona began to lose strength and energy as we gained strength and energy; up until that point, they had performed better.”
After the victory, Real Madrid is still in first place, tied on 28 points with Girona in second place and Barcelona, four points behind, in third.
After combining with fellow former Manchester City player Ferran Torres, Gundogan calmly shot past Kepa Arrizabalaga to give Barca the lead after just six minutes.
Vinicius Junior missed an opportunity to tie the score, and Fermin Lopez’s shot against the post nearly extended Barcelona’s lead.
Before the interval, Dani Carvajal drove against an upright, causing Real to also collide with the woodwork.
Early in the 2nd half, Lopez struck the post a second time, and Kepa moved fast to stop Ronald Araujo from scoring on the rebound.
Aurelien Tchouameni’s strong drive that struck the goal frame gave Real Madrid a boost as the game went on.
Subsequently, Bellingham assumed control of the game with a fantastic curling shot from 25 yards.
Robert Lewandowski had a chance to put Barcelona back ahead when he attacked over 10 minutes from time, but the game could still go either way.
But Bellingham was going to have the last word. After Modric flicked on a Carvajal cross, the 20-year-old was once again in the right place at the right time, swooping in to clip home.
Next Saturday in La Liga, Barcelona takes on Real Sociedad; kickoff is at 8 p.m.On Sunday at 8 p.m., Real Madrid will host Rayo Vallecano.
Carlo Ancelotti after the final whistle: “We started the first half too slowly. During the dueling, we did not use a lot of force or aggression. I admitted to the players at halftime that we don’t always win. but not in this manner. We needed to play with greater vigor and emotion.”In the second half, we played much better and more aggressively. Simply better. We desired no draw. We desired victory. Without a doubt, Luka [Modric] altered the game. He had everything under control and kept the ball. The game was altered by him.
