Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham didn’t train with the rest of the squad this Friday and is questionable for Saturday’s home match against Granada. The British midfielder will likely get some rest in this game after playing with a lot of intensity against Napoli last Wednesday.

While Bellingham will likely make the team’s squad list, coach Carlo Ancelotti could decide to keep him on the bench. If that’s the case, Brahim, Rodrygo and Joselu would start on Real Madrid’s offensive line, which should be enough to earn the three points at home against a team like Granada, who have only scored seven points this season and will be fighting to avoid relegation.

Real Madrid should take care of business even without Bellingham, so this is a perfect opportunity for Ancelotti to manage his squad, give the starters some rest and possibly even feature some canteranos.
