Despite losing the Classico. Gundogan and Lamine Yamal enter history

Lamine Yamal made history by coming on as a substitute during the Clásico match between Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga.

Yamal replaced Joao Cancelo in the 77th minute, becoming the youngest player to feature in a Clásico match in history.

The Moroccan-born Spain international is 16 years old, 3 months and 15 days old, yet he has managed to secure a semi-permanent place in coach Xavi Hernandez's squad.

Despite the writing of history, but it seems that today was not happy for Yamal, Barca suffered defeat in the last minute thanks to a goal by Jude Bellingham, and widened the difference with Real Madrid to 4 points in the LaLiga race.

Ilkay Gundogan scored the goal for Barcelona in the sixth minute, and this goal also has a distinctive historical significance for the German star.

Gundogan became the first player in history to score in the Spanish Clasico, the Manchester derby in England and the German classique.

Gundogan has long been dubbed the "man of the big matches" and his scoring record at the tops seems to speak of him after his goal at Real, even if the Catalan club are ultimately defeated.
