Jude Bellingham made a remarkable Clásico debut, scoring twice to lead Real Madrid to a thrilling 2-1 victory over Barcelona in Catalonia.

Despite an early goal by Ilkay Gundogan, which put the hosts Barcelona in the lead for over an hour, Bellingham equalized for Madrid in the 68th minute with a stunning long-range strike.

Bellingham's 12th goal in 13 matches for Madrid was a spectacular thunderbolt from a distance of 30 yards.

The Englishman's brace sent Madrid to the top of La Liga, ahead of Girona on goal difference, with both teams four points ahead of Barcelona in third.

The Catalans were boosted by the returns of Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde and Raphinha from injury, with Xavi naming them on the bench, but Frenkie de Jong and Pedri did not recover in time.

His counterpart Carlo Ancelotti selected Ferland Mendy at left back over Eduardo Camavinga and Fran Garcia, once again deploying Bellingham in the number 10 role as he got his first taste of arguably the world's biggest club football match.
