Real Madrid 4-0 Girona: Jude Bellingham scores twice before coming off injured as Real go five points clear | Football News

Jude Bellingham asked to be substituted due to a left foot injury after scoring twice in Real Madrid’s 4-0 victory over Girona.

Bellingham appeared to twist his left ankle after Girona’s Pablo Torre stepped on it early in the second half.

The English midfielder was briefly treated by team doctors before returning to the field.

But shortly after scoring an easy second goal in the 55th minute of the game, Bellingham sat on the grass and asked to leave.

He left the field cautiously but under his own power.

Bellingham’s double gives him 20 goals in all competitions since joining Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

“We train together every day and we get to know each other. He is a star, he has scored a lot of goals,” said Vinicius Jr about Bellingham, who is also LaLiga’s top scorer this season with 16 goals.

Real Madrid visits Leipzig on Tuesday in the Champions League.

Saturday’s victory gives leaders Real a five-point lead over second-placed Girona.
