Jude Bellingham leaves Real Madrid training: will he miss the Madrid derby this weekend?

Just two days before the Madrid derby, Bellingham left Real Madrid training as the club prepares to take on Atlético Madrid.

Jude Bellingham left Real Madrid training on Friday morning due to stomach problems. The English midfielder is Madrid’s top scorer this season and has become one of Carlo Ancelotti’s leaders on the pitch in his short spell at the club.

With just two days to go before the Madrid derby against Atlético on Sunday, it was slightly concerning news for the club, although medical staff at Valdebebas believe he will still feature in this weekend’s derby with Los Blancos’ cross-city rivals.

Another Bellingham winner

Bellingham understandably showed signs of fatigue after Madrid’s narrow 1-0 win over Union Berlin in the Champions League on Wednesday, a game in which he scored the winning goal in the 94th minute.

On Thursday, he trained without any issues, and it was this morning (Friday) when he felt unwell in a session that started in the gym before the players went out to train on the pitch.

Bellingham’s injury record

Bellingham is not a player who has suffered serious injuries in his career to date. In three seasons with Borussia Dortmund, he only missed four games. One of those was the final match of the 2022-23 season, which ultimately cost Dortmund the Bundesliga title.
