Real Madrid complete heartbreaking comeback against Barcelona to stay top of the Spanish league

The Merengue team managed to reverse the situation in the 90+2 minute to continue to lead the competition thanks to goal difference.

Real Madrid made a great comeback against Barcelona in a new edition of the Spanish classic and ended up winning 1-2 on the 11th day of La Liga.

The Madrid team had to do their best to relieve the pressure. Indeed, on Friday which opened the date, Girona, one of the surprises of the championship, beat Celta de Vigo 1-0 and took the lead in the competition.

For this reason, the meringues tried to take the initiative of the game from the first minutes, but ended up suffering before ten minutes.

In the 6th minute, a defensive failure allowed Ilkay Gündogan to emerge in the center of the area to define before the departure of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga who saw his goal thwarted. .

After that, and seeing themselves ahead on the scoreboard, Barcelona put a little more pause in the duel, trying to take advantage of their rival’s desperation.

So, in the 16th minute, Fermín López missed a good approach after finishing inside the area, but the ball ended up hitting the left post.

One of the first responses to these attacks came in the 22nd minute. Antonio Rüdiger attempted a long shot from outside the area which ended up passing close to one of the posts.

Of course, the Blaugrana had another opportunity to create danger in the 37th minute. Fermín López collected the ball at the edge of the area and fired a shot that went wide.

From then on, Real Madrid fought to avoid being behind at half-time. Rodrygo and Toni Kroos had their alternatives, but without positive results, so Barcelona returned to the locker room with a 1-0 lead. .

Already in the second half, and to achieve their goals, Real Madrid was forced to come out in search of the equalizer, leaving some spaces in the rearguard that Barcelona tried to take advantage of.

In the 51st minute, the culé player Íñigo Martínez sent a header to the post and in the next minute, Ronald Araujo provoked a great reaction from Arrizabalaga who ended up sending the ball to the corner.

Later, Joao Cancelo entered the box to take a shot which ended up hitting one of the Merengue defenders.

After these arrivals, the reaction of Real Madrid took place. First, in the 67th minute, Aurélien Tchouaméni appeared inside the area and fired a shot which forced Marc-André ter Stegen to fly away.

A minute later, Jude Bellinham received the unmarked ball, settled in and fired a shot from outside the box that the German keeper was unable to contain to level the score at 1-1. Of course, that wasn’t all, because in the 90+2′ the same player was responsible for overturning the score with which Real Madrid achieved victory. .

With this result, the meringues remain at the top of the ranking with 28 points, like Girona, thanks to the goal difference. For their part, the Blaugranas, whose day remains to be completed, occupy third place with 24 units.

On the next date, the Catalans will have to travel to Real Sociedad. For its part, the team from the Hispanic capital will have to host Rayo Vallecano at home.
