The English midfielder notched his second game-winning goal for Real Madrid late in the match against Barcelona, effectively determining the outcome of the Spanish title race.

Jude Bellingham once again emerged as the standout performer in the Clasico, netting a decisive goal in the final moments to conclude another stellar showing against Barcelona. His late strike, along with an impressive performance from substitute right-back Lucas Vazquez, allowed Los Blancos to snatch a 3-2 victory and likely secure their position in La Liga’s title race.

Despite a slow start from Madrid, they managed to level the score after Vinicius Jr converted a penalty following a foul on Vazquez by Pau Cubarsi. Barcelona believed they had regained the lead later in the first half, but VAR was unable to confirm if the ball had crossed the line. Nevertheless, the Blaugrana eventually took the lead in the second half when Fermin Lopez capitalized on an error from Andriy Lunin to score from close range.

Madrid struck back once again with Vazquez finding space at the far post to redirect Vinicius’ cross into the net, followed by Bellingham’s decisive strike into the top corner in the 91st minute, sparking jubilation among the Santiago Bernabeu crowd. With this, the title race was effectively concluded.

Real Madrid’s players evaluation:

Andriy Lunin (4/10): Out of position for Christensen’s goal from a corner and contributed to Barcelona’s second goal with an error. A disappointing performance after his impressive display in the Champions League earlier in the week.

Lucas Vazquez (8/10): Earning the nickname “Vazquez Clasico,” he won the penalty leading to Madrid’s first goal, scored the second, and assisted the third. A standout display from the substitute right-back.

Aurelien Tchouameni (7/10): Effective in winning tackles and containing Lewandowski but showed some sluggish reactions at times.

Antonio Rudiger (6/10): Solid defensively and not responsible for either of Barcelona’s goals.

Eduardo Camavinga (6/10): Played in his preferred position from the previous season and engaged in an intense battle with Yamal, showing mixed outcomes.

Toni Kroos (6/10): Executed precise passes as needed but appeared vulnerable during transitions. Substituted at an opportune time.

Federico Valverde (6/10): Covered significant ground, effectively tackled opponents, and maintained composure in midfield. His versatility is priceless.

Luka Modric (7/10): Directed play in central areas, possibly in his final Clasico appearance. Remarkable ball control and sharp defensively. It will be odd to witness these encounters without him.

Rodrygo (7/10): Remained active in the offensive third but struggled at critical moments. Overall, performed well.

Vinicius Jr (7/10): Successfully scored a penalty and contributed to Madrid’s second goal with an assist. Better decision-making could have led to more goals. Demonstrates consistent performance in crucial matches.

Fran Garcia (6/10): Offered late-game stamina as a left-back.

Brahim Diaz (5/10): Had a brief period of clumsiness but contributed to the winning goal.
