Speaking in the post-match conference, Ancelotti said Bellingham plays like a veteran.

Were all surprised at the level hes at, especially in terms of how effective hes been, quoted Ancelotti as saying.

He always tries to run in from deep. What was surprising today was his finishing, because he hasnt scored many goals from the edge of the area and he scored a great one. He could easily score 20 to 25 goals. We dont think of him as a striker, but hes a very important player for us. Hes scoring a lot for us but we also expect goals from the forwards.

He looks like a veteran. His attitude is very good. The closer he is to the box, the better it is for him. Hes the player who has made the biggest difference. I dont know where he will be in the Ballon dOr. I dont really care. I didnt know there was a gala on Monday.

We werent aiming for a draw, but to try to win. The equaliser changed the momentum, it gave us more strength and made Barcelona weaker as they had been playing better up to that point. Its three points at a very difficult ground . Weve played a lot of away games, Of the seven in the league, five have been very tough. The fixture schedule has demanded a lot from us and weve done very well.

The Elclasico is one of the biggest club games in world football and one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world.

Real Madrid are currently top of the Laliga rankings with 28 points from 11 games while Barcelona are third with 24 points from the same number of matches.

Los Blancos will play Rayo Vallecano in their next match on Sunday, November 5 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Carlo Ancelotti led side are first in Group C of the UEFA Champions League with nine points after matchday three.
