Real Madrid has not been spared during the international break. While already dealing with long-term injuries to key players such as Courtois and Militão, they have recently lost Eduardo Camavinga and Vinicius Jr. to injuries. Jude Bellingham, who has been struggling with shoulder problems since the match against Rayo Vallecano, had to withdraw from the England squad and missed the matches against Braga and Valencia. But in the face of this injury crisis, Carlo Ancelotti seems to have made a bold decision!
Ancelotti ready to take a chance with Bellingham?
Indeed, Edu Aguirre, speaking on the El Chiringuito show, is convinced that the Italian coach will take a risk with the English midfielder on Sunday afternoon (18:30) against Cadiz: “I think Madrid will take a chance with Bellingham and he will play against Cadiz,” he stated. It remains to be seen if this prediction will come true as the Merengue currently sit in second place in the league, just two points behind the surprise team of the season, Girona.
Taking a risk with Bellingham could be a gamble for Ancelotti and Real Madrid. The young midfielder has shown great potential and talent, but rushing him back from injury could potentially worsen his condition and lead to a longer spell on the sidelines. On the other hand, with key players already out, Ancelotti may feel that he has no choice but to take the risk in order to field a competitive team.
It is clear that Ancelotti and the Real Madrid medical staff will need to carefully assess Bellingham’s fitness and condition before making a final decision. The last thing they would want is to exacerbate his injury and jeopardize his long-term development and contribution to the team.
The match against Cadiz will be a crucial test for both Bellingham and Real Madrid. If he does play, all eyes will be on the young midfielder to see how he copes with the demands of the game and whether he can make a positive impact for his team. Ancelotti’s decision will undoubtedly be scrutinized, but ultimately, the priority must be the well-being and long-term health of the player.
As the game approaches, the Real Madrid fans will be eagerly awaiting news on Bellingham’s availability and hoping that Ancelotti’s gamble pays off. Only time will tell if this risk will prove to be a masterstroke or a misstep for the club.
💣 “Creo que el MADRID va a FORZAR con BELLINGHAM y JUGARÁ ante el CÁDIZ”.
