Earlier today, the Appeals Committee of the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) rejected Real Madrid’s appeal to overturn Jude Bellingham’s two-match suspension handed to him after the red card against Valencia.

Los Blancos had appealed the red card soon after the game, but the Competitions Committee disregarded it and handed him a two-match ban.

It prompted the club to take the matters to the Appeals Committee, but they were met with the same verdict yet again.

As such, Bellingham is now scheduled to miss the upcoming two matches against Celta Vigo and Osasuna.

Fresh appeal at the Sports Administrative Court

However, Real Madrid are not letting go of the matter and plan on lodging a fresh appeal against Bellingham’s suspension, this time with the Sports Administrative Court (CSD), reports journalist Carlos Rodriguez.

The Merengues were left distraught by the officiating during the Valencia game, with Bellingham himself terming his red card after the final whistle as ‘ridiculous’.

As such, Real Madrid are sparing no efforts to overturn the suspension, with the matter now set to be taken to the Sports Administrative Court.

However, at the same time, Los Blancos assume that the decision from the court might not arrive in time and it could lead to Bellingham still missing out on the matches against both Celta and Osasuna.

Real Madrid could ask for a precautionary measure to temporarily hold the suspension until the verdict from the CSD arrives. It is a tactic that Barcelona used last season with Robert Lewandowski’s suspension.

It remains to be seen what course of action the Merengues take as they enter the business end of the season.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
