Carlo Ancelotti's three options to replace Bellingham

It is a significant loss for Real Madrid, especially as they begin their Champions League knockout campaign against RB Leipzig on Tuesday. Bellingham sustained an ankle injury against Girona that will prevent him from playing for the next three weeks as reported.

Three main options are available to Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti to replace Bellingham: Brahim Diaz, who has been starting in place of the 20-year-old whenever he has not played, seems to be the front-runner. Luka Modric is also a possibility; he would bring experience, which could be needed against Leipzig.

The last, and arguably least likely, option is Joselu Mato, whose inclusion would probably force Real Madrid to switch to 4-3-3. However, Ancelotti is unlikely to change the system that has been so successful this season, so Brahim or Modric are a better choice right now.
