With an injury suffered not long ago, Jude Bellingham will likely not be able to participate in the confrontation between RB Leipzig and Real Madrid in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.
However, contrary to the worries of “Los Blancos” fans, coach Carlo Ancelotti appeared quite calm. Sharing in a recent interview (recorded by The Star), he said: “We won all four games without Jude Bellingham. He is an important player, but it is an opportunity for others to have more motivation.”
In addition to the English midfielder, Real Madrid is also absent a few other names such as David Alaba, Eder Militao and Antonio Rüdiger. Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni will likely be positioned in the center of defense alongside Nacho Fernandez.
This promises to be a big challenge for the La Liga representative, when RB Leipzig with a group of quality young stars is ready to knock down any opponent. They also have the advantage of playing at home.
