After sustaining a high ankle sprain during Real Madrid’s La Liga victory against Girona on Saturday, the club has revealed that Jude Bellingham will be sidelined for three weeks.
Bellingham scored twice in Madrid’s 4-1 victory over Girona, which moved the team five points clear of La Liga. However, the England international left the game before the hour mark due to a left ankle injury.
Bellingham will get tests, as Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti stated during the game. On Sunday, the team announced that Bellingham had a sprained ankle.
For Madrid, the injury occurs during a hectic period. They play RB Leipzig in a round-of-16 Champions League match on Tuesday before taking on Rayo Vallecano in La Liga the following weekend.
Bellingham has scored 20 goals this season across all competitions, 16 of which have came in La Liga, making him Madrid’s top scorer.
