Barcelona vs Real Madrid Full Match Reports

In a pulsating clash, Jude Bellingham emerged as the hero of the hour with a 92nd-minute winner, propelling Real Madrid to a memorable victory in the first El Clásico of the season. This remarkable triumph brought an end to Barcelona’s unbeaten start to the campaign.

With the Rolling Stones in attendance, the stage was set for a contest that would be grasped by those exuding confidence and expertise. İlkay Gündoğan, known for his prowess in big matches, wasted no time in making his mark on this blockbuster encounter. Less than six minutes into the game, Aurélien Tchouaméni’s ill-fated attempt to intercept possession near his own penalty area inadvertently gifted Gündoğan the opportunity to calmly slot home the opening goal.

Real Madrid, acutely aware of the need to tighten up their defensive structure, found themselves exposed when Toni Kroos fell victim to Gavi’s relentless tenacity, leading to Fermín López seizing upon the loose ball and striking the post. Los Blancos struggled to mount any significant attacking threat in a cautious first half, failing to register a single shot on target before the halftime whistle, leaving Carlo Ancelotti with much to contemplate during the break.

Despite a lackluster start to the second half, Real Madrid owed their goal and the woodwork a debt of gratitude as they managed to preserve the slender deficit. Iñigo Martínez became Barcelona’s second player to strike the post, followed by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s impressive save to deny Ronald Araújo’s rebound.

In the 68th minute, Barcelona’s goalkeeper, Marc-André ter Stegen, was finally thrust into action, making a superb diving stop to thwart Tchouaméni. However, moments later, the irrepressible Bellingham left an indelible mark on one of club football’s most illustrious fixtures. Capitalizing on a poor clearance outside the penalty area, the Englishman unleashed an absolute rocket that thundered into the net, leveling the scoreline.

Buoyed by their newfound confidence, the visitors surged forward in search of a winner. It was a moment worth waiting for, as Daniel Carvajal’s cross was deftly touched on by Luka Modrić into the path of Bellingham, who calmly slotted home his 13th goal in as many appearances for Real Madrid. This dramatic turn of events not only secured victory for Ancelotti’s men but also propelled them to the summit of La Liga, inflicting Barcelona’s first home league defeat of the season. Real Madrid’s sensational start to the campaign shows no signs of waning.
