El Clasico: Los Blancos pulled off an incredible last-minute win over Barca

Barcelona had to swallow their disappointment after being hit by the comeback of eternal rivals Real Madrid. Barca took the lead twice, but in the end, it was Madrid who secured the three points with a score of 3-2. The two giant sides met at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 32nd week of the La Liga 2023/2024 duel on Sunday(21st April 2024). As usual, El Clasico always attracts the attention of fans.

Barca didn't play badly, they even took the lead twice through goals from Andreas Christensen (6') and Fermin Lopez (69'). However, Madrid was still able to catch up and reverse the position through the actions of Vinicius Junior (18'), Lucaz Vazquez (73'), and Jude Bellingham (90+1'). This defeat must hurt Barca and the difference in points from Madrid widened to 11 points in the league standing. There are six matches left in the Spanish League, so it seems difficult to imagine that La Blaugrana can overtake Los Blancos.

So, what was the report card of the Barcelona players when they were humiliated by Real Madrid? Barca fought back well and they faced a Madrid team that was still tired after their Champions League appearance a few days ago, so there should be a slight advantage. The proof was that Barca could take the lead first even leading on two occasions, namely when the score was 0-1 and 1-2. Well, at this moment the Barca squad let loose a little, and Fermin Lopez celebrated excessively. Barca's young star scored his team's second goal in the 69th minute, but it was clear that the game was still long. Fermin lost control, his excessive celebration provoked Madrid fans and the Visitors then conceded two goals after that, including a bitter goal in injury time. Barca's back line this time was not good enough, especially on the left side which was guarded by Pau Cubarsi and Joao Cancelo. The left side of Barca's defense was a concern point that Lucas Vazquez and Jude Bellingham exploited very well and pulled off an incredible win at last.
