Gringolândia analyzes the Real Madrid team and praises Bellingham
This will be Bellingham’s first ‘Clásico’ with Real Madrid. The English midfielder has been the team’s highlight this season so far, scoring 11 goals in 12 matches, in addition to three assists.
The law prohibiting the broadcast of football matches on Saturdays at this time is not new in the UK. It has been around since the 1960s, and will remain in place until at least 2029. It was a measure to encourage fan attendance in stadiums.
-We are disappointed. British fans will not be able to watch El Clásico, nor Bellingham’s debut, this weekend, due to the rule in the UK that football is not shown on Saturdays from 2.45pm local time. We support measures to boost attendance at English stadiums, but we believe that the TV “blackout” should be limited to national football – announced the General Manager of LaLiga in the UK and Ireland, Keegan Pearce.
The press says attendance is 99% guaranteed.
Bellingham did not participate in training with the rest of the group and worked separately in the internal facilities of Real Madrid’s training center, under the supervision of the club’s physiotherapists.
Watch Barcelona x Real Madrid in real time at 11:15 AM (Brasilia time) on Saturday.
