Two goals were scored in El Clasico, Xavi made an insulting statement about Bellingham

Barcelona manager Xavi refused to admit Jude Bellingham was outstanding in El Clasico and instead suggested the player scored lucky goals.

He declared that the English midfielder is scoring lucky goals, not that he is a player who is a killer in front of goal.

“Bellingham is a great player, but it’s true that now he’s in a blessed moment, the balls fall to him, the deflections,” declared Xavi.

It’s a surprise to hear this from someone who has played this game before like Xavi. The best soccer players in the world make their fortune with their perfect positioning to cause maximum damage to the opponent.

Even if we say that Bellingham’s second goal was lucky, what can Xavi say about Jude’s first goal to equalize for Real Madrid?

Some Barca pundits have blamed Marc Andre Ter Stegen for allowing Bellingham to score the two goals, but this analysis has been dismissed as absurd.

Goalies can’t stop everything, and Bellingham showed again how unstoppable he can be on his day.
