Jude Bellingham and Rudiger red cards vs Valencia: Real Madrid to appeal

In a dramatic game at Valencia, Jude Bellingham found himself at the center of controversy as he was sent off for expressing frustration after the final whistle denied what seemed like a winning goal for Real Madrid.

Vinicius Jr showcased his prowess with two goals at the Mestalla, a stadium where he previously faced racist abuse, aiding Real Madrid’s comeback from a 2-0 deficit to salvage a point and extend their lead to seven points at the top of La Liga.

Bellingham believed he had secured victory for Real Madrid in the dying moments of the game when he headed in from close range. However, his celebrations were cut short as referee Gil Manzano had blown the whistle to signal the end of the match before the cross had been delivered.
