Jude Bellingham scores late winner in a 3 2 comeback win over Barcelona at the Bernabeau

Jude Bellingham scored in the 92nd minute to win the El Clasico for Madrid in a 3 2 win over Barcelona.

Barca led twice first from Andres Christensen off a well taken corner by Raphinha before Madrid drew level courtesy of a Penalty from Vini Jnr after brilliant work by Vasquez who was brought down by El Clasico debutant Curbasi.

Barca thought they have the lead after yet another corner from Raphinha and a deft flick by Lamine Yamal but after lenghty check by VAR the ball was adjusted not to have completely crossed the line and play resume with a corner for Barca which was cleared this time by the Madrid defence who had been under pressure from Barcelona deadly accuracy from set piece.

The first half ended on a sour note for Barca after Frenkie De Jong had to be stretched off after injuring his ankle colliding with Fede Valverde with the Madrid midfielder pleading his innocence with an apologetic gesture. The injured De Jong was replaced by Pedri as Barca see out the first half with the score level at one goal apiece.

Fermin Lopez was introduced at the beginning of the second half for Christensen and it was him who put Barca ahead and after a cross was dummied by another substitute Ferran Torres who replaced the ineffective Lewandowski and after Lunin could only parried Lamal cross into the path of the Barcelona midfielder, Fermin made no mistake giving Barca the lead for the second time on the night.

Barcelona lead lasted two minute as Vini Jnr left foot cross was met by the impressive Lucas Vasquez who volled home a right footed equalizer to bring the game levelled.
Carlo Ancelloti then brought on Brahim Diaz for Toni Kroos and Vini Jnr was replaced with Joselo and it was the two substitute who combine for the winner with Brahim Diaz driving through the Barcelona midfield to tee up Lucas Vasquez whose cross was dummied into the path of Jude Bellingham whose left footed drive flew into the roof of the net with Ter Stegen helpless in the Barcelona goal to seal yet another win for Madrid after scoring a 92nd minute winner in the reverse fixture.

With the win Barcelona opened up an impressive and 11 point lead over their rivals and at this point could match on to yet another la liga title come end of the season.
