Today, Saturday, Barcelona wasted an excellent opportunity to beat Real Madrid in a match El Clasico What Ended in loss (1-2).
Bellingham was the character of the match, scoring twice for the Merengues in the second half, turning a match that seemed designed in Barcelona’s favour.
With Joao Felix and Cancelo in the XI, Xavi’s formation introduced some new features, leaving on the bench, for example, Oriol Romeu and Lamal, as well as Lewandowski returning from injury.
Despite the loss, Barcelona started the match better.
After only six minutes, Gundogan opened the scoring, in a move in which the stars conspired in his favor. The German won the rebound against Tshwamini, then won the rebound in a clash with Alaba, collided with Kepa and scored easily.
The goal galvanized Barcelona, who almost scored again soon after. Joao Felix broke Carvajal’s kidney and Fermin threw the iron: It should be noted that Fermin was always the best of Barcelona, in a match in which Felix had some good details, but little consistency.
Real Madrid ended the first half with only one shot, which went slightly wide of the goal, which indicates Catalan superiority.
The beginning of the second half did not change the course of the match much. Barcelona was at the top and reached the opponent’s goal with more danger. On a dead ball, for example, Iñigo Martinez hit the woodwork again. The goalkeeper did not want to have anything to do with the Catalans.
Shortly after, Fermin (always the one) released Cancelo’s pass, who worked well, connecting Camavinga blindly and firing in an excellent position over the bar, when he had everything to score.
Until the 68th minute, the story of the match began to change. With a great goal. Bellingham wins the ball with leftovers, hits the ball in the middle of the street and scores a wonderful goal to equalise.
Since then, Real Madrid have always been on top and there was a feeling that the goal could only come from Ter Stegen’s goal. Xavi also removed Joao Felix and Cancelo in the 77th minute, allowing Lamal and Rafinha to start, but he was unable to control the match again.
Even in stoppage time of the match, Bellingham once again succeeded in achieving the final with a score of 2-1: the Englishman took advantage of Joselu’s poor reception of the ball, collided in the face of Ter Stegen and did not forgive.
Bellingham silences Barcelona. “Hey Jude” seemed to drown out the sound of the Rolling Stones, who sponsored Barcelona’s shirt this afternoon.
With this result, Real Madrid is level with Granada at the top with 28 pointsWhile Barcelona occupies third place, four points behind. It can still be overtaken by At Madrid.
