Jude Bellingham has been a pillar in Real Madrid’s midfield this season. The youngster is deployed as the attacking midfielder on paper, although his statistics would tempt one to believe otherwise.

With ten goals in eleven league appearances for Los Blancos, the English phenom has been nothing less than a striker for the team. What makes his contributions more valuable is the sheer number of match-winning contributions he has made so far.

The 20-year-old has been a regular feature in almost every game for the Merengues across all competitions.

Only a shoulder injury halted him from participating in the team’s last two games before the international break and had led to doubts about his involvement against Cadiz this Sunday, although he is expected to be ready.

The latest status

According to reports from SPORT, all signs indicate that Bellingham will be available for Real Madrid’s game at the weekend.

The medical staff have left the decision over his participation with the player himself, albeit with a clause.

As revealed by the publication, Los Blancos have prepared protection for the youngster’s shoulder so as to prevent adding salt to the wound.

It is now up to the player to decide if he participates with the protection, skips the game, or evaluates his situation after starting.

A world of pain

The recent international break leaves Real Madrid in a state of absolute panic. It could not have possibly gone worse for the men in white, for they lost some of their most essential stars along the way.

Vinicius Jr. suffered an injury on duty with the Brazilian national team and is expected to be out for two months at least. Meanwhile, Eduardo Camavinga is ruled out for the long term after his injury in training with France.

The latest blow came earlier this week when Rodrygo Goes returned to Madrid with a knee issue.

Three key players are thus added to the team’s long list of injuries which already includes Aurelien Tchouameni, Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Dani Ceballos.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
