Jude Bellingham has been a revelation for Real Madrid. In the absence of a recognized striker, the Englishman has taken on a more advanced role at the Bernabeu and has performed excellently for his new club. He scored the club’s second goal in the 2-1 win over Braga in the Champions League, taking his tally to 11 goals in 12 games for the club, although he gave the fans a little injury scare.

Thankfully, Bellingham himself has declared his condition fit for the biggest game of his career so far, as Real Madrid travel to Barcelona on Sunday for the first El Clasico of the season.

“I feel good after the last Champions League match in Braga,” Bellingham told RTVE in an interview. “I know the impact that El Clasico has among the fans, the media, and football in general, and I feel, at the same time, the responsibility towards the club and fans for getting the three points. We have a lot of quality, and I envision a victory for my team if we do everything we know how to do.”

“I’m really excited and looking forward to the moment. It’s a rival we respect a lot. I’m very excited, and it’s interesting personally. I’m going to have a lot of fun,” he added.

Bellingham has also formed a great partnership with Vinicius Jr. on the pitch, who has credited himself for helping to convince the youngster to come to Real Madrid.

Sadly, Jude Bellingham’s fans in the UK will not be able to watch the live broadcast of the El Clasico due to the UK Blackout rule that prohibits matches from being broadcast between 2:45 pm and 5:15 pm.
