Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham will not face Valencia in La Liga because of a shoulder problem, the club said Saturday ahead of the game.
Bellingham suffered a minor dislocation of his shoulder in last weekend’s 0-0 draw against Rayo Vallecano and coach Carlo Ancelotti left him on the bench against Braga in the Champions League on Wednesday.
“He has been diagnosed with anterior instability of the left shoulder, a consequence of his recent dislocation,” said Madrid in a statement.
“Bellingham is out for today’s game against Valencia.”
The England international, 20, has taken Spain by storm since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund this summer, and is top scorer in La Liga with 10 goals.
Madrid, in second, are looking to extend their lead on rivals Barcelona third when they face Valencia later Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ancelotti selected Brahim Diaz in Bellingham’s spot against Braga and the former Manchester City midfielder convinced, scoring in the 3-0 win.
