But after he tapped in an easy second goal in the 55th, Bellingham soon sat down on the turf and asked to come off. He walked off the field gingerly but on his own power.

“Bellingham picked up a sprained ankle,” coach Carlo Ancelotti said. “They'll assess him tomorrow. I hope we can have him fit for Tuesday.”

His double gave Bellingham 20 goals across all competitions since joining Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
