Despite missing their actual center backs in the team, Real Madrid defeated one of the teams of the season in Girona 4-0 at home. Girona has not lost to a single team in La Liga except for Real Madrid, which is now twice this season after the weekend's win. Looking towards the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 game against RB Leipzig, Madrid will not count on more key players. This time, Jude Bellingham suffered an ankle injury and will be put in for 2-3 weeks. Bellingham is reportedly not featuring in the 1st leg game against RB Leipzig tomorrow.

RB Leipzig manager Marco Rose spoke ahead of the Real Madrid game that will be played at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany. Rose spoke about Bellingham reportedly being out for the game and said, "I won't believe Jude Bellingham is out until he's not at the stadium tomorrow. I know Jude, he’ll do everything possible to play in a Champions League match. Let’s see. I had Jude Bellingham for a year, he is a great boy, with a great mentality, his movement is very good. If he doesn't play, there’s Brahim or 4-3-3 with Joselu. There are small details that will change, he is a very important player for them.

Marco Rose explains how he would approach the Real Madrid game tomorrow

Marco Rose mentions how he thinks Real Madrid will play against RB Leipzig tomorrow. Rose said, "How to stop Vini Jr.? He plays central and inside too, he wants the ball, he does take ons, he wants to score and he scores... it's very difficult for the defense to stop him. But we shouldn't focus on just him. If Joselu plays, he is very good on top. And they have other players who can score a goal. We are talking about Real Madrid. We want to play them with possession, create opportunities. It's what we need to do.”
