Real Madrid had a big win last night against Girona, winning 4-0 to take a commanding lead at the top of La Liga. However, there was one sour note on the evening, as Jude Bellingham was forced off the field after an hour with an ankle injury.
Real Madrid released a statement on Sunday morning confirming the extent of the injury. The club said that Bellingham has suffered a “high-grade sprain” to his left ankle.
According to local media reports, Bellingham is expected to miss several games, starting with Tuesday’s Champions League clash against RB Leipzig. He could be in line to return for the return match at the Bernabéu on March 6.
Bellingham’s injury is a blow to Real Madrid, who have been in excellent form in recent weeks. The English midfielder has been a key part of that form, and his absence will be a challenge for Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
Real Madrid will be hoping that Bellingham can make a quick recovery and return to action as soon as possible. The 19-year-old is a vital player for the team, and his presence will be missed in the coming weeks.
