Ilkay Gundogan, Gabi, and Fermin Lopes worked together in midfield, while Joao Felix, Ferran Torres, and Joao Cancelo aimed for the Real goal at the front line.
It was the away team, Barcelona, who scored the first goal. In the 6th minute of the first half, Real made a mistake while blocking Barcelona’s pass, and when the ball headed into the box, Gundogan quickly penetrated and aimed to score. Alaba hurriedly tried to stop him with a sliding tackle, but failed, and Gundogan scored the first goal early in the first half, shaking Real’s net.
With this, Gün Doğan, who left Manchester City for Barcelona last summer, scored his debut goal for Barcelona 14 games after his debut, scoring his debut goal in El Clásico to the delight of fans.
Real, who conceded a goal due to a mistake, almost conceded a goal in the 15th minute of the first half when a similar scene occurred again. Due to Gabi’s pressure, Cross gave possession of the ball, which was caught by Lopes, a midfielder born in 2003. Lopes fired a shot toward the near post from inside the box, but the shot hit the goal post and the opportunity for an additional goal was lost.
Real also lifted the mood little by little and launched a counterattack. In extra time in the first half, Vinicius attempted to break through the side, resulting in a foul and a warning to Torres.
Real, who finished the first half 0-1, overcame the risk of conceding a goal in the second half due to the goal. In the 6th minute of the second half, Lopez’s cross flew into the box and Martinez hit the header with a header, which hit the goal post. Araujo, who was in the box, caught this and fired again, but this time Real goalkeeper Kepa made a fantastic save and did not allow an additional goal.
Bellingham’s fantastic equalizer in the 23rd minute of the second half allowed Real to finally tie the score at 1-1. Even though Bellingham was a bit far away, he boldly fired a mid-range shot with his right foot, and this shot went straight into the corner of the goal, leading to the equalizer. Goalkeeper Ter Stegen tried to block the shot by jumping around, but it was impossible to block it because the shot was so fast and sharp.
Real, who tied the score with Bellingham’s wonder goal, succeeded in turning the game around with a dramatic comeback goal in extra time in the second half. The hero of the comeback goal was none other than Bellingham.
First, Carvajal sent a low cross into the box, which Real veteran midfielder Luka Modric touched with his foot. However, Modric could not touch the ball properly, so the ball floated upward and headed backwards, where Bellingham was waiting behind him. Bellingham, who had a decisive opportunity right in front of the goal, immediately put the ball into the goal, making the score 2-1.
In the end, thanks to Bellingham’s one-man show, Real won the first El Clásico of the season with a 2-1 victory, successfully securing three points in the away game against Barcelona. With the win that day, Real had 28 points (9 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss) and rose to the top of the league. Barcelona, who missed the win, maintained 24 points (7 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss) and 3rd place.
Meanwhile, Bellingham, who led the team to victory by scoring two goals that day, once again received great praise from fans. Signed from Borussia Dortmund last summer, Bellingham has put in incredible performances in his debut season, raising the possibility of him becoming one of Real’s best ever signings.
Including multiple goals against Barcelona, Bellingham established himself as a key player in the team by scoring 13 goals and 3 assists in 13 games as soon as he joined Real. As he shows outstanding performance, expectations are growing that he will be selected as the ‘2023 Golden Boy’ by Italy’s ‘Tutosport’, which selects the best prospect among 21-year-old players.
Real paid a whopping 103 million euros (approximately 143.7 billion won) in the basic transfer fee to Borussia Dortmund to recruit Bellingham last June, and the prevailing opinion is that the transfer fee was already not a waste of money, as Bellingham has shown great success as soon as he joined the team. .
In particular, the game against Barcelona that day was Bellingham’s first ‘El Clasico’, and he not only led the team to victory by scoring multiple goals in his El Clasico debut, but also wrote a new history for Real.
Many world-class players have played for Real Madrid, but this is the first time in 76 years that Bellingham has scored two goals in his El Clásico debut. Bellingham, who was evaluated as the successor to legendary midfielder Zinedine Zidane when he was hired, has already shown signs of becoming a club legend, raising expectations among fans.
