Real Madrid took a massive step toward another LaLiga title with a win over Girona, but an injury to Jude Bellingham tarnished celebrations. The Englishman scored a brace in Real Madrid’s 4-0 win over their biggest contender to win the Spanish top flight. The two goals against Girona continued a simply sensational debut campaign in Spain with 16 goals in 21 league fixtures. Yet, in the 57th minute, Bellingham went down and instantly required a substitution.
According to Real Madrid, the star midfielder sprained his ankle, and he will miss several games with the knock. The club did not provide a timetable for when the Englishman may return. However, the certainty is that Bellingham will miss Real Madrid’s upcoming Champions League game against RB Leipzig. It is the first leg of the round of 16, and Real Madrid is on the road in Germany to play the fifth-best team in the Bundesliga so far this season.
Speculating on when Jude Bellingham can return from injury, and the diagnosis of a sprained ankle could rule him out for three weeks. Again, there is no specification on the severity of the injury. Yet, Bellingham was walking and celebrating with his teammates at the Santiago Bernabeu after the win over Girona. At the very least, it is a sign that Bellingham’s recovery will be a quick one.
Games Jude Bellingham may miss with injury
Over the next three weeks, Real Madrid will have the opportunity to cement its spot at the top of the LaLiga table. Fortunately for Los Blancos, the games on the schedule are challenging, but not the end of the world. Real Madrid has already crossed off its games against Girona and Atletico Madrid, and it faces Barcelona at home in April. The three league games Bellingham may miss are against Rayo Vallecano, Sevilla and Valencia. Sevilla and Valencia have strong histories, but recent form has not been kind to either. In fact, Valencia is the only team among those three to be in the top half of the table.
